Early active detection of diseases of the cardiovascular system

CHD: primary circulatory arrest. CHD: heart failure. IHD: arrhythmias and heart block. CHD: angina pectoris. Hypertension (GB) and secondary arterial hypertension (VAG). Initial manifestations of circulatory failure of the brain (NPNKM). Risk groups for primary circulatory arrest and its relapse: patients with ECG signs of threatened fibrillation (ventricular extrasystoles, especially frequent, polytopic, rhythmic; “early” ventricular extrasystoles; broadening of the ventricular ECG complex; increase in tooth amplitude? ECG; bradycardia; late ventricular potentials) . Risk groups for arrhythmias: males older than 40 years; women over 50; persons with risk factors for primary circulatory arrest; children who had at least once in their life a “heart attack” (search for ventricular pre-excitation syndromes).

The most significant risk groups for hypertension: men and women 40 years of age and older; patients with diabetes mellitus, coronary heart disease; smokers with hypercholesterolemia; women during menopause and menopause, with postmenopausal syndrome; women with preeclampsia.

Angina pectoris is significantly more common in men over 40 years old, women over 50 years old, in individuals with arterial hypertension, obesity, gout, and “atypical” cardialgia.

During a screening examination of risk groups, it is necessary to measure blood pressure with identification of the nonrandomness of its increase (not with psychoemotional stress, not with a hangover syndrome, not with a “white coat syndrome”); verified by at least three medical appointments (two measurements each) for a period of 3 weeks or more. up to 3 months increase in blood pressure (BP) above the numbers 140/90 mm RT. Art., proceeding with damage to target organs (brain, heart, kidneys). The diagnosis of GB is reliable after exclusion of known secondary arterial hypertension (VAG).

According to indications for the exclusion of VAG:

- if there is a suspicion of coarctation of the aorta, the measurement of blood pressure on the arms and legs, chest x-ray (expanded and shifted to the right of the aorta, ribs), aortography;

- if pheochromocytoma is suspected, an ultrasound examination (ultrasound) of the adrenal glands, computed tomography (CT) scan of the adrenal gland;

- if suspected of Itsenko-Cushing's disease, radiographs of the Turkish saddle, ultrasound, CT of the adrenal glands;

- with suspected renovascular hypertension aortography;

- with suspected hypernephroma and hypernephroid cancer, ultrasound, CT of the kidneys, renal angiography;

- with suspected chronic diffuse glomerulonephritis, amyloidosis, kidney biopsy;

- if there is a suspicion of chronic bilateral pyelonephritis, urine culture on microflora and Mycobacterium tuberculosis, intravenous and retrograde pyelography;

- if there is a suspicion of erythremia, a blood test with a count of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, sternal puncture.

For the purpose of early diagnosis of NSAIDs, background cardiac pathology is taken into account, especially atrial fibrillation, diabetes mellitus, intermittent claudication, aggravated heredity (cerebral stroke, myocardial infarction, arterial hypertension in parents). The following complaints must be included in the questionnaires: headache, dizziness, noise in the head, memory loss, poor performance, not caused by the effects of traumatic brain injuries, neuroinfections.

• For early recognition of myocarditis, the primary care team should not let children and adults who have had viral and bacterial infections out of sight.
For complaints of shortness of breath, palpitations, interruptions, weakness, ECG monitoring and determination of acute phase tests are mandatory.

• Early signs of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: “accidentally” detected systolic murmur at the apex, in the Botkin area, amplified by a sharp rise and straining; cerebral syncopes; cardialgia in combination with deep Tv3-6 teeth.

• Early signs of dilated cardiomyopathy: “accidentally” detected cardiomegaly in young people who are not suffering from ischemic, hypertension, congenital and acquired heart defects, or heart failure unexplained by these causes. Additional examination: resting ECG, echo cardiography.

• Active identification of patients with acquired heart defects is carried out by the primary care team during examinations of children, adolescents, pregnant women, men of working age. The leading method of screening of the 1st level is thorough auscultation of the heart. Level 2 screening - additional examination of patients with systolic and (or) diastolic murmur of the heart to exclude its incidence or functional nature. ECG methods are used, radiography of the heart with contrast of the esophagus, phonocardiography, echocardiography.

• Congenital heart defects can be diagnosed in utero, in the third trimester of pregnancy, using an echocardiographic study of the fetus. Risk group - women who suffered measles rubella in the first months of pregnancy; women living in environmentally disadvantaged areas, working in chemical plants; alcoholics, drug addicts.

• Infectious endocarditis. High-risk groups: patients with aortic defects, aortic coarctation, Marfan syndrome, mitral regurgitation, open ductus arteriosus, septal defects. After tooth extraction, tonsillectomy, prostatectomy, it is advisable to prophylactically introduce 1 million units of penicillin or 80 mg of gentamicin before manipulation and twice more with an interval of 8 hours in the same dose after manipulation!

• Pulmonary embolism. Risk groups: women with varicose veins of the lower extremities, thrombophlebitis, trophic ulcers of the lower extremities; patients in the early postoperative period after operations on the organs of the abdominal cavity, pelvis, hip fracture; patients with heart failure, strokes; pregnant. Level 1 screening: ECG; radiographs of the lungs; blood coagulation, duration of bleeding, platelets, prothrombin, fibrinogen.

To clarify the diagnosis of phlebothrombosis of the deep veins of the lower legs, the clinic data are taken into account (feeling of heaviness, fullness, heat, pain in the calf muscles, spasms of the calf muscles at night, trophic disturbances of the skin of the legs), instrumental methods, the most accessible of which is ultrasound dopplerography.

Early active detection of diseases of the cardiovascular system

  1. Early active detection of diseases of the endocrine system
    Diabetes. Level 1 screening includes questionnaires, glucotest. Significant risk classes (latent, potential diabetes) - individuals with normal carbohydrate tolerance, but with a greater risk of developing diabetes mellitus; persons in whom both parents are sick with diabetes or one of the parents is sick, and the other on the hereditary line has patients with diabetes; women giving birth to a living or
  2. Early active disease detection
    Not always a person experiencing bodily and mental illness, immediately seeks medical help. The insidiousness of many diseases lies in the fact that their preclinical period stretches for many years, and the morphologically irreversible process corresponds to a fully developed clinic. This applies to diseases such as chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma, ischemic disease
  3. Early active detection of bowel disease
    Questionnaires include signs of dyspepsia, diarrhea, constipation, and blood excrement with feces. Screening of the 1st level includes analysis of feces for digestibility, occult blood, digital examination of the rectum. The program of further examination is determined after a physical examination. Endogenous risk factors for colon cancer: the nature of nutrition (a combination in the diet of coarse fiber with
  4. Early active detection of rheumatic diseases
    Level 1 screening includes questionnaires that include diagnostic criteria for rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, reactive arthritis, gout, systemic lupus erythematosus, systemic scleroderma. Risk group for rheumatoid arthritis: female subpopulation older than 15 years with clear intra-family correlations. Risk group for osteoarthritis: persons over 50 with overweight.
  5. Early active detection of kidney and urinary tract diseases
    The primary health care team provides level 1 screening, including complaints analysis (rapid questionnaires), results of a clinical analysis of freshly released urine. Risk groups are young children, pregnant women, men over 50 years old, women over 60 years old. If pathology is detected (proteinuria, leukocyturia, hematuria) after a doctor's examination
  6. Early active identification of patients with gastropathology
    The primary public health care team sets the task of early active detection of gastric diseases with priority for life-threatening diseases (stomach cancer) and common pathologies (gastroduodenal ulcers, chronic gastritis). Stomach cancer. Exogenous risk factors: violation of the diet (the use of large amounts of fried, smoked meats, marinades, salt,
  7. Early active detection of anemia
    Risk groups: children, pregnant women, elderly people, representatives of low-income groups of the population (unemployed, large families, etc.). Level 1 screening involves the determination of hemoglobin. At low numbers, a detailed blood test is performed, specified
    Diseases of the cardiovascular system are not so common in cats, but their symptoms should be known and, if there is any need, consult a veterinarian. Cat Siamese, Abyssinian, Persian and Burmese cats are most susceptible to heart disease. Males get sick more often than
  9. Diseases of the cardiovascular system
    According to statistics, diseases of the cardiovascular system occupy a leading place among diseases of non-communicable etiology and are the main cause of death (43%). There are diseases that have developed against the background of congenital malformations and acquired. Congenital malformations appear very early and make up only 2.4% of the total number of cardiovascular pathologies. Dogs with birth defects
    Atherosclerosis is a chronic disease, with predominant damage to large-caliber arteries [elastic or muscular-elastic types), accompanied by the deposition of fats and proteins in the vessel wall and the development of sclerotic changes in them. In the development of atherosclerosis, factors such as nervous, metabolic disorders [hypercholesterolemia), endocrine [diabetes mellitus) play a role,
