1 week ago, suddenly my Chai" was almost fainted
He already felt not good on his chest, but when we planned to check it, he almost cannot stand anymore.. But thanks God, he still can walk to the car
So we went to RS Bunda, actually in there, his heartbeat already weak..
so we decided to move to RS Medistra to further checkup
In there, the doctor said, he got the AV Block.. and actually when someone got that disease with heartbeat about 30bpm, he must be fainted already, but Chai" was strong enough to still wake up
What is AV Block actually?
Atrioventricular block (AV block) is a type of heart block in which the conduction between the atria and ventricles of the heart is impaired. Under normal conditions, the sinoatrial node (SA node) in the atria sets the pace for the heart, and these impulses travel down to the ventricles. In an AV block, this message does not reach the ventricles or is impaired along the way. The ventricles of the heart have their own pacing mechanisms, which can maintain a lowered heart rate in the absence of SA stimulation.
The causes of pathological AV block are varied and include ischaemia, infarction, fibrosis or drugs, and the blocks may be complete or may only impair the signaling between the SA and AV nodes. Certain AV blocks can also be found as normal variants, such as in athletes or children, and are benign. Strong vagal stimulation may also produce AV block. The cholinergic receptor types affected are the muscarinic receptors.
He was hospitalized about a week before he got the surgery to put Pacemaker on his chest, coz if he not doing it, someday if suddenly the disease come again, he can get stroke.
Thanks God, the surgery was succeed and he was back to normal.. and actually since he got that surgery, he seems like more healthy than before.
Please dun sick again, hunih.. *hug
