Old people’s defecation is a big taboo
The winter when cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases are high is coming. Many elderly people are very concerned about warmth in the day-to-day teaching of doctors.
However, the danger of defecation is often overlooked.
In fact, accidents such as myocardial infarction and sudden death on the toilet are not uncommon, and the danger level is worthy of vigilance.
◆ The defecation of the elderly is a big bogey. When the person uses force to breathe and defecate, the muscles of various organs of the body are contracting hard, and the muscles of the abdomen will also contract, resulting in increased abdominal pressure.
Increased abdominal pressure increases blood pressure in the heart, increased blood pressure, increased blood pressure and increased myocardial oxygen consumption, leading to heart attack, angina pectoris or severe arrhythmia caused by sudden death.
If the elderly coronary artery disease is severe, it will cause rupture of atherosclerotic plaque, resulting in acute coronary thrombosis, resulting in acute myocardial infarction.
Patients with cerebrovascular disease and patients with poorly controlled hypertension can have stroke, cerebral hemorrhage and cerebral infarction when forced defecation.
Therefore, elderly people with heart and cerebrovascular diseases should not be too hard to defecate.
The row will be arranged from here, and it will not be reluctant to row out. Defecation is a big taboo.
Those elderly people with poor bowel movements should eat more fruits and vegetables, drink more water, and exercise more to keep the stool smooth.
If the conditioning effect is not good, you can take some laxative medication under the guidance of a doctor to help the elderly to defecate smoothly.
◆The bowel movement is smooth, but also pay attention to the following four items, regardless of the smooth and unpleasant bowel movements, the elderly with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases have certain risks in defecation, so pay attention to the following items, it will be safer.
First of all, because of the amount of abdominal pressure used in the defecation relative to the sitting position, the risk is relatively large. For the sake of safety, it is better for elderly friends to choose the method of sitting.
Second, before going to the toilet, elderly people with a history of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases should take urinary glycerin and other first-aid drugs into the bathroom in case of accidents.
Third, try not to plug in the door when you go to the toilet, so that if there is a problem, the family will find it in the first time.
Fourth, after the end of bowel movements, the movements to stand up should be as slow as possible to avoid transient cerebral palsy, resulting in fainting and even cerebrovascular accidents.
