Hard to take a deep breath—here its what you need to know about
Successful results were obtained in the electronic nose diagnosis studies in the Cardiology Clinic of Hitit University Erol Olçok Training and Research Hospital. Head of Cardiology Department Prof. Dr. Under the coordination of Yusuf Karavelioğlu, the patient and healthy people who applied to the Cardiology Clinic were breathed and the study was carried out with the breath. Persons participating in this study voluntarily; filled the 10-liter single-use sterile bags given to them by blowing them with sterile mouthpieces. Puffs in these bags were recorded as data in the computer through the electronic nose with gas sensors inside.
362 BREATH SAMPLES TAKEN
In the study, a total of 362 breath samples were taken from 81 participants and uploaded to the developed system. As a result of the work done; It was concluded that people who had a heart attack and who were hospitalized in intensive care left their breaths with 97.19 percent accuracy, from the breathing of people with cardiovascular occlusion or without any heart disease. In the same study, the breaths of people with cardiovascular occlusion and those without any heart disease were also detected with an accuracy of 81.48 percent. A patent application was filed in 2019 to convert the system into a device and put it into use. In addition, this study was published as an article in an internationally respected journal. This academic work has shown that a device that can detect heart diseases from the breath can now be made, and paved the way for the use of new technology to assist in disease diagnosis methods. Tozlu and his team stated that if they can obtain ethical approval and hospital work permits, they will start a study on the detection of coronavirus disease from the breath.
Five Heart Disease Symptoms You Should Never Ignore
1. Chest Pain
“Chest pain is never normal,” says Dr. Phillips. And by that, he means any kind of chest discomfort, including the “elephant sitting on my chest” feeling, but also sharp pains, a burning sensation, or a tugging feeling in the chest, all of which could be your heart’s way of saying it is not getting enough oxygen. “If it’s a new symptom, have it checked out,”
2. Shortness of Breath
Is it hard to take a deep breath? Do you get winded more easily during exercise or walking up a flight of stairs? When you lie down, do you have trouble breathing, or do you wake up in the middle of the night trying to catch your breath? These are all signs that your heart might not be working efficiently.
3. Heart Palpitations
If you feel your heart racing for longer than seems normal, that is worthy of a call to your doctor. “When you exercise, you’ll feel your heart beating more strongly,”
4. Loss of Consciousness
When a person faints or passes out, it’s often sudden—they fall to the floor, for instance, and have no memory of what happened when they regain consciousness. This could be a sign of a dangerous heart rhythm disorder that can lead to sudden cardiac arrest and should never be ignored.
Dizziness is defined as feeling like the room is spinning or you are going to pass out. This can be due to a slow or fast heart rhythm and can indicate that your heart’s electrical system is not firing properly. “This could be a sign of arrhythmia, or of a heart valve condition
“Most people know their bodies better than any doctor does. In general, if you constantly feel something isn’t ‘right’ or isn’t what you’re used to, that warrants medical attention. Your whole body can be involved in sending the message that something’s wrong with your heart. You should always check your heart with the above symptoms. If you are facing shortness of breath or if you think that its hard to take deep breath then please go and concern your doctor.
