Smoking, Drugs and Heart Attack
Here we have a real story of a 17 year old boy. He came with a sudden onset of excruciating chest pain. When we did an ECG, this boy was suffering from a massive life threatening heart attack. His heart pumping function had dropped to 15%. Immediately we did an emergency angioplasty & saved his life.
On a detailed history, he said that he was a cocaine abuser & a smoker. This signifies that the cocaine drug abuse, & smoking precipitates major heart attacks even at a very young age.
Smoking, chewing tobacco, consuming drugs or drinking alcohol can damage your heart to the extent of death.
SAY NO TO DRUGS, SMOKING, TOBACCO AND ALCOHOL. Quitting this is the most important thing you can do for your heart health.
