Heart-brain-lung Three diseased organs

Heart, brain and lungs : 3 organs that work together, heart-brain-lung

Heart-brain-lung, heart disease, stroke and diseases in the respiratory system or lung disease They have always been related to each other. According to a 2019 report by the World Health Organization (WHO). The top three causes of death are ischemic heart disease. Cerebrovascular disease and chronic obstructive airway disease, respectively, with the following relationships:

Heart disease and cerebrovascular disease, heart-brain-lung

Dr. Chitlada Samajarn, a neurology specialist Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital states that the two diseases can occur at the same time. This is because the risk factors for both systems are very similar. Such risk factors include disease , high blood pressure , diabetes , hyperlipidemia, smoking, obesity, physical inactivity. Regular consumption of alcoholic beverages. These factors accelerate or facilitate the formation of fatty plaques that adhere to the inside of the coronary artery walls. blood vessels in the neck blood vessels in the brain. When more fat deposits Causes acute coronary and/or cerebrovascular disease. 

Acute myocardial infarction and/or acute cerebral ischemia may occur. Or in the accumulation of sebaceous plaque in the neck arteries. If there is a sloughing off of the sebaceous plaque to the blood vessels of the brain. It can also cause cerebral ischemia. In addition, such risk factors causing fragile and unhealthy vascular an aneurysm in the brain or abdomen resulting in rupture or torn blood vessels leading to bleeding in the brain or abdomen. This can cause a high risk of death as well.

Meanwhile Acute myocardial infarction/arrhythmia causing the residual blood to circulate in the atria Blood clots in the heart’s chambers can occur and can be dislodge to clog the blood vessels in the brain. By arrhythmia It is the highest risk of stroke. and may be more than 5 times higher if the patient has other diseases as well. There are also reports that coronary heart disease or ischemic heart. 

It is the second leading cause of death after cancer, and according to the American Heart Association (AHA) report, in 2018 it was reported that if 100 people had heart disease, one would find someone with heart disease. The stroke risk is up to 17 people, so there is a strong need to control the condition. Appropriately to the normal level and should be monitored for these diseases early

Lung disease and heart disease

Smoking is the leading cause of lung disease, the most common being cancer. Lungs and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Such as emphysema, which can cause the heart to work harder due to higher than normal lung resistance. The pressure of the blood vessels returning to the heart increases. Contributes to the heart to work harder. thus increasing the risk of causing more arrhythmias. In addition, emphysema can also increase the blood pressure of the pulmonary arteries. This can cause right ventricular failure. 

This is a dangerous condition. The patient was very tired and eventually died. Of the 100 people with COPD, 25-33 people will die from heart disease, which is a pretty big number. Besides that People with pulmonary thromboembolism If it occurs in an acute condition. It can cause the heart to stop beating or cause a sudden attack on the right side of the heart. or in chronic cases, it can cause pulmonary hypertension.
