Acute Coronary Syndrome

Available Locations - Hyderabad, Bhubaneswar, Raipur and Vizag
What is acute coronary syndrome (ACS)?

The term ‘acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is used by doctors to describe several heart conditions including heart attacks (myocardial infarction) and unstable anginas. They are all caused by the same underlying problem, which is the decrease in the amount of blood flowing to certain parts of the heart.
ACS is treated in different ways that are usually determined by the condition. Treatments help with the pain, improve necessary blood flow and help prevent any complications that may occur in the future.

What causes ACS?

ACS is commonly caused by coronary artery disease, also known as heart disease, which is caused by atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Atherosclerosis causes plaque to build up and block the arteries. Plaque causes an unstable angina by narrowing the arteries, which limits the flow of blood to the heart muscle. A heart attack (myocardial infarction) happens when the blood flow is fully blocked.

Symptoms

Listed below are the most regular and usual of ACS symptoms.

  1. Chest pain or pressure; strange or indescribable feeling in chest
  2. Shortness of breath.
  3. Sudden and/or excessive sweating.
  4. Nausea or vomiting.
  5. Feeling dizzy or lightheaded.
  6. Sudden weakness.
  7. A fast or irregular heartbeat.
  8. Pain, pressure in one or both shoulders or arms; in the back, neck, jaw or upper belly.

If you experience one or more of ACS symptoms, you should immediately call an ambulance and seek medical attention.

Risk Factors

You are more at risk if any of the following are part of your life –

  1. High blood pressure
  2. High cholesterol
  3. Smoking
  4. Diabetes
  5. Lack of exercise

Family history of heart disease

Diagnosis and Treatment

A complete physical examination is usually performed to determine the cause of symptoms. If your doctor suspects ACS, the following tests are performed.

Blood test (to show if heart cells are dying).
Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) to diagnose ACS by assessing the heart’s electrical activity.
On confirming there is a blockage, doctors will work immediately to reopen the artery.

Treating ACS includes medication and procedures such as angioplasty, in which doctors inflate a small space to open the blocked artery. A stent may be placed permanently to keep the artery open. Certain drugs can be used to dissolve blood clots.
Treatment is entirely dependent on the nature of the ACS and the patient’s health profile.
