Early active detection of diseases of the cardiovascular system

IHD: primary stop of blood circulation. CHD: heart failure. IHD: arrhythmias and heart block. IHD: angina pectoris. Hypertensive heart disease (GB) and secondary arterial hypertension (VAG). Initial manifestations of circulatory failure of the brain (NPNKM). Risk groups of primary circulatory arrest and its recurrence: patients with ECG signs of threatening fibrillation (ventricular extrasystoles, especially frequent, polytopic, rhythmic; "early" ventricular extrasystoles; broadening of the ventricular complex ECG; increase in amplitude of the prong? ECG; bradycardia; late ventricular potentials) . Arrhythmia risk groups: 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 "heart attack" (search for syndromes of pre-excitation of the ventricles).

The most significant risk groups for hypertension: men and women 40 years of age and older; patients with diabetes, ischemic heart disease; smokers with hypercholesterolemia; women in menopause and in menopause, with postmenopausal syndrome; women who have had preeclampsia.

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

When screening risk groups, it is necessary to measure blood pressure with identification of the non-randomness of its increase (not with psycho-emotional stress, not with hangover syndrome, not with “white coat syndrome”); verified by at least three medical appointments (two measurements each) for at least 3 weeks. up to 3 months high blood pressure (BP) above the figures 140/90 mm Hg. Art., proceeding with a lesion of target organs (brain, heart, kidneys). The diagnosis of GB is reliable after the exclusion of known secondary arterial hypertension (VAG).

According to the testimony to exclude VAG held:

- in case of suspected aortic coarctation, measurement of blood pressure in the arms and legs, chest radiographs (aorta enlarged and shifted to the right, rib fusion), aortography;

- in case of suspected pheochromocytoma ultrasound examination (ultrasound) of the adrenal glands, computed tomography (CT) of the adrenal glands;

- in case of suspicion of the Itsenko-Cushing's disease, radiographs of the Turkish saddle, ultrasound, adrenal CT;

- at suspicion on a renovascular arterial aortography;

- in case of suspicion of hypernephroma and hypernephroid cancer, ultrasound, CT of the kidneys, angiography of the kidneys;

- in case of suspicion of chronic diffuse glomerulonephritis, amyloidosis, renal biopsy;

- in case of suspicion of chronic bilateral pyelonephritis, urine culture on microflora and Mycobacterium tuberculosis, intravenous and retrograde pyelography;

- in case of suspicion of erythremia, a blood test with red blood cell count, leukocyte count, platelet count, sternal puncture.

For the purpose of early diagnosis of NPNCM, the underlying pathology of the heart, especially atrial fibrillation, diabetes mellitus, intermittent claudication, and burdened heredity (cerebral stroke, myocardial infarction, and hypertension from the parents) are taken into account. The questionnaires must include the following complaints: headache, dizziness, noise in the head, memory loss, poor performance, not caused by the consequences of traumatic brain injuries, neuroinfections.

• For early recognition of myocarditis, the PMSPN team should not let children and adults who have had viral and bacterial infections out of sight.
With complaints of shortness of breath, palpitations, interruptions, weakness, ECG control is required, the definition of “acute phase” tests.

• Early signs of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: “accidentally” detected systolic murmur at the apex, in the Botkin zone, aggravated by abrupt rising and straining; brain syncope; cardialgia in combination with deep teeth Tv3-6.

• Early signs of dilated cardiomyopathy: “accidentally” revealed cardiomegaly in young people who are not suffering from ischemic, hypertensive disease, congenital and acquired heart defects, or heart failure unexplained by the indicated reasons. Additional examination volume: resting ECG, echo cardiography.

• Active detection of patients with acquired heart defects is performed by the PMSPN team during examinations of children, adolescents, pregnant women, men of working age. The leading screening method for level 1 is thorough auscultation of the heart. Level 2 screening is an additional examination of patients with systolic and (or) diastolic heart murmur to exclude its accidents or functional nature. ECG methods, radiography of the heart with esophageal contrast, phonocardiography, echocardiography are used.

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

• Infective endocarditis. High-risk groups: patients with aortic malformations, aortic coarctation, Marfan syndrome, mitral insufficiency, open arterial duct, septal defects. After tooth extraction, tonsillectomy, prostatectomy, it is advisable to prophylactically inject 1 million IU of penicillin or 80 mg of gentamicin before manipulation and twice more with an interval of 8 hours at 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 abdominal organs, small pelvis, hip fracture; patients with heart failure, strokes; pregnant women. Screening Level 1: ECG; radiographs of the lungs; blood clotting, bleeding duration, platelets, prothrombin, fibrinogen.

To clarify the diagnosis of phlebothrombosis of deep veins of the legs, these clinics are taken into account (feeling of heaviness, pain, heat, pain in the calf muscles, cramps of the calf muscles at night, trophic disorders of the skin of the legs), instrumental methods, the most accessible of which is Doppler ultrasound.

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. Reliable risk classes (latent, potential diabetes) - persons with normal carbohydrate tolerance, but with a greater risk of developing diabetes; Persons who have both parents have diabetes or one of the parents is sick, while the other has a diabetic patient; women who gave birth alive or
  2. Early active disease detection
    It is far from always that a person experiencing bodily and mental ills immediately seeks medical help. The cunning of many diseases lies in the fact that their preclinical period extends over many years, and the clinic that has developed in its entirety corresponds to a morphologically poorly reversible process. This applies to diseases such as chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma, ischemic disease.
  3. Early active detection of intestinal diseases
    The questionnaires include signs of dyspepsia, diarrhea, constipation, and discharge of blood with feces. Screening level 1 includes fecal analysis of digestibility, occult blood, digital rectal examination. The program of further examination is determined after a medical examination. Endogenous risk factors for colon cancer: nutritional pattern (combination in the diet of coarse plant fiber with
  4. Early active detection of rheumatic diseases
    Screening for the first level includes questionnaires that include diagnostic criteria for rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, reactive arthritis, gout, systemic lupus erythematosus, systemic scleroderma. Risk group of rheumatoid arthritis: female subpopulation older than 15 years with clear intrafamily correlations. Risk of osteoarthritis: persons over 50 years old with overweight.
  5. Early active detection of kidney and urinary tract diseases
    The team of primary health care to the population provides screening of the 1st level, which includes the analysis of complaints (express questionnaires), the results of the clinical analysis of fresh 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 examination by a doctor
  6. Early active detection of patients with gastropathology
    The team of primary health care to the population sets the task of early active detection of stomach diseases, with the priority of life-threatening diseases (stomach cancer) and common pathology (gastroduodenal ulcers, chronic gastritis). Stomach cancer. Exogenous risk factors: violation of the diet (eating large quantities of roast, smoked meat, pickles, 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 includes hemoglobin determination. At low numbers, a detailed blood test is performed;
    Diseases of the cardiovascular system are not so common in cats, but their symptoms should be known and, if necessary, contact a veterinarian. The most prone to heart disease are Siamese, Abyssinian, Persian and Burmese cats. Males are sick more often than
  9. Diseases of the cardiovascular system
    According to statistics, diseases of the cardiovascular system occupy a leading place among the diseases of non-communicable etiology and are the main cause of death (43%). Distinguish diseases developed on the background of congenital defects and acquired. Congenital malformations occur very early and make up only 2.4% of the total number of cardiovascular pathologies. Dogs with congenital malformations
    Atherosclerosis is a chronic disease, with a predominant lesion of large-caliber arteries [elastic or muscular-elastic types), accompanied by the deposition of fat and proteins in the vessel wall and the development of sclerotic changes in them. In the development of atherosclerosis, such factors as nervous, metabolic disorders [hypercholesterolemia), endocrine [diabetes mellitus],
