Cardiovascular disease - a scourge of our time. Pharmaceutical companies are producing new means to treat them, but, unfortunately, the more effective the drug, the greater the side effects and contraindications. Appoint such drugs can only be a doctor.
Action tablets Concor heart
Concor refers to a group of medicines called beta1-blockers. This is a complex and incomprehensible title says that the number of drugs that block the action of adrenaline on the heart - it is located in the heart beta1-adrenergic receptors or nerve endings that are sensitive to adrenaline.
Most people are, how the action of adrenaline on the human body: it leads him to full combat readiness, that is helping to gather and give a fitting rebuff to the enemy or run away. For this purpose the heart begins to contract more often narrowed blood vessels, increases blood pressure, dilate bronchi (increases the volume of air entering the lungs), the entire metabolism
Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
Concor inhibits the action of adrenaline on the heart only, then there is a selective (selective) beta1-adrenergic blocker.
Blocking the action of adrenaline causes the heart begins to contract less, arteries that carry blood to the heart muscle (coronary arteries) extend, and the total blood pressure (BP) is reduced due to the fact that the reduced blood volume, which pushes the heart to the circulatory system during each contraction.
Which diseases appointed Concor
The mechanism of action Concor allows its use in various diseases. So, Concor is widely used in coronary heart disease - the drug acts during 24 hours and supports the coronary vessels in a relaxed state. As a result of angina are entirely or reduced their frequency and duration.
Apply Concor and stable high blood pressure (hypertension) - it helps to reduce pressure and improve the condition of the patient.
In chronic heart failure Concor also helps the heart, but only if the disease is in stage of compensation, that is when the heart is still largely does its job. If you come decompensation (edema, shortness of breath and so on), Concor can not accept, as it will aggravate the disease.
Despite the fact that Concor is a drug that selectively blocks the action of adrenaline on the heart, to get rid of blocking the action of adrenaline on other organs and systems is not always possible, that is exactly what is the cause of side effects. Thus, blocking the arrival of adrenaline to the bronchi can cause bronchospasm. Side effects may also occur in other organs, they appear headache, dizziness
Dizziness - if the ground is slipping from under his feet
, Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hepatic impairment, hearing impairment, conjunctivitis, muscle weakness, fatigue, allergic reactions, and so on.
Furthermore, its effect on the heart may also be accompanied by side effects, particularly, if not the fate of all indications and contraindications for the purpose of the drug.
While taking Concor may develop bradycardia (too rare heart rate), worsening of symptoms of chronic heart failure
Heart failure - when the heart is unable to cope with the work
, Cold extremities, a sharp decrease in blood pressure, heart block (impaired conduction of cardiac impulses).
To tablets are contraindicated
Concor tablets are contraindicated in acute cardiac diseases such as congestive heart failure, cardiogenic shock - these states may develop, for example, in severe cardiac arrhythmias, myocardial infarction
Myocardial infarction - the most formidable diagnosis
and so on.
Do not take the tablets Concor in chronic heart failure decompensation when the heart muscle is required adjuvants and slows its reductions (for example, cardiac glycosides) - Concor also makes reducing myocardial rarer that can cause complications.
When violations of the sinus node (primary pacemaker - that there arise the nerve impulses that cause reduced heart muscle), violations of the transmission of nerve impulses from the sinus node to the atria (sinoatrial block), significant violations of the transmission of nerve impulses from the atria to the ventricles (atrioventricular block II and III degree) without taking Concor pacemaker, which also slows conduction, very dangerous.
Contraindications Concor as low blood pressure, bradycardia, bronchial diseases, violation of their permeability, violations of peripheral blood circulation, hormonal adrenal tumors, severe metabolic disorders, aged 18 years, with increased sensitivity to the patient.
Concor is assigned a doctor after a full examination of the patient.
