Impact Of Heart Diseases

How it changes your life?

Heart functions poorly

There will be a lot of changes that will occur once you are diagnosed with heart disease. Your body’s functioning will forever be altered because the heart functions poorly. The heart is a vital organ that is responsible for pumping oxygenated blood throughout the body. It is also the organ that filters deoxygenated blood to oxygenated, with the help of the lungs. For organs to function properly it needs an adequate supply of blood; and the heart is responsible for all of these functioning.

Have to reduce their physical activities

Patients diagnosed with heart disease will have to decrease their physical activities to decrease the workload of the heart. If they’re used to do strenuous work before, they will have to stop it and just do light activities.

Depression

They feel useless because they can’t work anymore to support their families just like before. This is the emotional effect that heart disease brings on a patient. Having a depression will more likely aggravate the condition of the patient; therefore, it is necessary that you provide them not only with physical care but also with emotional support.

Social life affected

Patients who usually enjoy drinking alcohol with their friends will have to stop this habit. They also have to stop from working because the heart cannot already manage extra physical work. With these, a heart patient will have minimal social interaction. The best way to resolve this is to let them join organizations with patients having the same condition with them.
