 diakarb asparkam
 Diakarb - a drug which is often prescribed for intracranial or elevated intraocular pressure. Typically with diakarbom asparkam administered to prevent side effects of this drug.

How does diakarb

Diakarb - is a diuretic (a diuretic), the effect of which is associated with inhibition of the enzyme carbonic anhydrase, involved in the metabolic processes of carbonic acid. Diakarba diuretic effect is slight and due to the suppression action karboangibrazy in renal tissue, which leads to lower re-absorption into the blood from emerging urine sodium ions and bicarbonate. Together with sodium and potassium is displayed.

Just as a diuretic diakarb is rarely used, as there are more effective drugs of this series.

But it is often prescribed for pulmonary-cardiac insufficiency, which develops in some lung diseases such as emphysema, when blood accumulates a large amount of carbon dioxide and bicarbonate (due to the stagnation of blood in the lungs, they just do not have time to time to be displayed).

Moreover, when applied Diacarbum increased intracranial pressure, including children up to a year. Inhibition of carbonic anhydrase brain reduces the formation of cerebrospinal fluid, which in turn leads to a decrease in intracranial pressure and related symptoms, such as headache.

Increased intraocular pressure in patients receiving diakarba associated with inhibition of carbonic anhydrase of ciliary body, which reduces the secretion of aqueous humor outflow and improve it. Diakarb especially effective in acute glaucoma Glaucoma - a perspective possible blindness  Glaucoma - a perspective possible blindness
 Which is accompanied by severe headaches.

What is at the same time appoint asparkam diakarbom

When taken from the body diakarba displayed a large number of sodium ions. Together with sodium and potassium is displayed that is not indifferent to the body. Potassium is vital to the cells of the whole body for proper metabolism. But especially potassium needed heart muscle (myocardium), as is involved in metabolism Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things  Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things
   in its cells. Required in this case, and magnesium, which is involved in carbohydrate metabolism and cell supplies the energy required for biochemical reactions.

Myocardium respond to elevated levels of potassium reduce anxiety and conductivity, i.e. restoration of normal cardiac rhythm. Large doses of potassium (hyperkalaemia) depress myocardial contractility, and can lead to heart failure, but side effects such asparkama typically occur when administered intravenously.

When hypokalemia (low potassium in the blood) is disturbed acid-base balance in the body. This is due to the increase in acidity (acidosis) within the cells, which leads to increased re-absorption in the kidneys from the primary urine bicarbonate alkalinity increase and blood - a general form of metabolic alkalosis.

Hypokalemia accompanied by the development of muscle weakness, lethargy, decreased performance, the appearance of cardiac arrhythmias (heart rhythm disturbances).

Asparkam - a drug which consists of potassium aspartate and magnesium aspartate. Aspartate promotes rapid transportation of potassium and magnesium to cells. Potassium is needed for restoring osmotic pressure in the cells, and magnesium, participating in carbohydrate metabolism, cell delivers the energy necessary for its operation. In addition, aksparkam promotes the excretion of sodium and increase the acidity of the blood.

Thus, asparkam compensate diakarba side effects in the form of loss of potassium ions and increase the alkalinity of the blood. It supplies the body potassium, and the energy needed for the proper functioning of the cells and reduces the increased alkalinity of the blood.

Which diseases are appointed with diakarb asparkamom

Today diakarb with asparkamom neurologists often prescribed to reduce intracranial pressure in various diseases and consequences of brain injury. Since Propafenone diakarba its diuretic effect decreases rapidly, this drug is usually prescribed intermittent two or four consecutive days with a break of a few days. Simultaneous with the appointment asparkama allows to reduce side effects to a minimum diakarba.

Ophthalmologists prescribe diakarb asparkamom with glaucoma - persistent increase in intraocular pressure.

In addition, diakarb prescribed for cardiopulmonary diseases Heart failure - when the heart is unable to cope with the work  Heart failure - when the heart is unable to cope with the work

Arrhythmia - when we hear your heart

  • Arrhythmia - when we hear your heart
  • What is an arrhythmia of the heart and its species

   Heart rhythm disturbances (arrhythmias) occur when a broken electrical impulses control the operation of the heart. As a result, the heart beats too fast, too slow or irregularly. Arrhythmia is often harmless. For many people, there are moments irregular heartbeat. However, some types of arrhythmias may be hazardous to health or even life.

Arrhythmias often treatable. In addition, given that the enhanced arrhythmia (or even called) a weak or damaged heart, you can reduce the risk of arrhythmia, leading a healthy lifestyle.

 Arrhythmia - when we hear your heart


Arrhythmia may not have signs or symptoms. Often, the doctor discovers during the inspection of the arrhythmia, and the patient did not suspect it.

However, the fibrillation and has noticeable symptoms, for example:

  • The heart beats irregularly
  • Quickens the heartbeat (tachycardia)
  • The heartbeat slows (bradycardia)
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness
  • Fainting or proximity to fainting

These features do not always indicate a serious problem. It happens that people who observe these symptoms, do not have serious problems, and other people life-threatening arrhythmias are asymptomatic.

When to call a doctor

Because of arrhythmia you may feel that his heart skips a beat, beating too fast or too slow. Other symptoms may be related to the fact that the heart takes too little blood vessels. This symptoms such as shortness of breath, weakness, dizziness, Dizziness - if the ground is slipping from under his feet  Dizziness - if the ground is slipping from under his feet
 , Proximity to fainting, pain or discomfort in the chest. If you suddenly or regularly experience some of these symptoms should see a doctor.

Ventricular fibrillation - a kind of deadly arrhythmias. It occurs when the pulses are uncoordinated and chaotic. This causes the ventricles of the heart quiver instead of pointless to pump blood. Without an effective heartbeat blood pressure plummeted, vital organs are left without blood flow. A person with ventricular fibrillation decreases after a few seconds and may soon stop breathing. If this happens, you should immediately call the "ambulance."

If you or someone close has techniques of cardiopulmonary resuscitation should start it. This will help to maintain blood flow to the organs until defibrillation is performed.

Portable defibrillators, which can create an electric shock to start the heart, most recently appearing in various places such as airplanes, police cars, shopping centers. These instructions are applied, and they are programmed to give a discharge just the right moment.

 Arrhythmia - when we hear your heart

Causes of arrhythmia

Many reasons can lead to arrhythmias.

  • Scarring of heart tissue (for example, after the attack)
  • Changes in the structure of the heart, such as cardiomyopathy
  • Blockage of arteries in the heart (coronary heart disease)
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Hyperthyroidism (over-active thyroid)
  • Smoking
  • Abuse of alcohol or caffeine
  • Drugs
  • Stress
  • Medication
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Electric shock

 Arrhythmia - when we hear your heart

How does the normal heart beat?

When the heart beats, the electrical impulses that cause it to fall, followed by a certain rhythm. Any violation of this rhythm can cause an arrhythmia.

The heart is divided into four cavities, called chambers. The upper-called right and left atrium, and the lower - right and left ventricle.

Each cycle heart atria contract and fill the relaxed ventricles with blood. This reduction begins where cardiac pacemaker - a small group of cells in the right atrium - sends an electrical impulse, causing the right and left atria to contract.

Then, a pulse is applied to the center of the heart in atrio-gastric junction located between the chambers. Hence the pulse is transmitted to the ventricles, causing them to contract and eject blood into the body.

In a healthy heart the process passes uniformly, resulting in heart at rest is reduced 60-100 times per minute. Athletes heart rate may be lower than 60, because their hearts are very efficient.
