Cardiomagnyl - a combined drug, the main active ingredient of which is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug aspirin has also antiplatelet properties (the ability to prevent the grouping of platelets). In addition, the composition includes magnesium hydroxide cardiomagnyl which prevents the side effects of aspirin.
How does cardiomagnil
Included in the cardiomagnyl aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) exerts antiplatelet effect by inhibiting the action of an enzyme involved in the synthesis of thromboxane A2. Thromboxane A2 - is a biologically active substance, which stimulates the formation and platelet aggregation capacity - the formation of clusters, which then become the basis of a blood clot.
Today, researchers believe that aspirin has other properties that help him prevent blood clots, but they have not yet been studied.
Aspirin - a drug that has a lot of side effects. But for the prevention of thrombosis it is used in doses many times smaller than an antipyretic and anti-inflammatory agent. Assign cardiomagnil for a long time, that creates a risk of the development of ulcerative lesions of the mucous membrane of the stomach or duodenum aspirin. In order to counteract this side effect of aspirin in cardiomagnyl composition includes magnesium hydroxide.
As formed clots
Thrombosis is called blood clotting within the lumen of a blood vessel in a living person. Clot formation prevents the flow of blood (and with it nutrients and oxygen) to the vital organs. Lead to thrombosis of the vessel wall damage, disruption of the blood system and slowing blood flow. Such disturbances can cause various diseases (diabetes, obesity, infection, heart and vascular diseases, etc.), intoxications, stress, intake of various drugs and other.
If the damage of the vessel wall defenses are trying to repair the damage, this rush to the site of injury platelets rapidly accumulate a large number of them (platelet aggregation). Next compensatory response - the formation of a particular enzyme thrombin which promotes conversion of fibrinogen plasma protein into insoluble fibrin protein constituting filament. The fibrin strands stuck platelets, red blood cells and white blood cells - it already has a blood clot. Finally, a blood clot formed after reduction (blood clot removed from the liquid part). Such a clot firmly closes the lumen of the vessel, without missing the blood to the tissues of an organ.
The risk of thrombosis in the fact that blood clots can break off and migrate through the blood vessels - a blood clot is called emboli, and disease that it can cause - thromboembolism
Thromboembolism: severe complications
. An embolus may suddenly block the vital blood vessels, causing instantaneous death of the patient.
Therefore, it is important to prevent thrombosis.
What diseases can be prevented by using cardiomagnyl
If you apply cardiomagnil rates for coronary heart disease, it is possible to prevent myocardial infarction. If myocardial infarction in a patient has been, it is possible to prevent the repeated, however, this would require a large daily dose of cardiomagnyl than for the primary prevention of myocardial infarction.
Cardiomagnil has great importance for the prevention of ischemic stroke, this disease is one of the first places on the disability of patients.
Very dangerous thrombosis of blood vessels of the mesentery of the intestine, it can lead to necrosis of the intestinal wall, peritonitis and death of the patient - cardiomagnil can warn and such a threat.
Finally, thrombophlebitis limb vessels and dangerous disease is prolonged and often complicated by thromboembolism. In operations on blood vessels cardiomagnil prescribed after surgery for prevention tromboetboly.
When cardiomagnil contraindicated
Aspirin has a lot of contraindications for use. This erosive and ulcerative lesions of the stomach and intestines (including bleeding) in the acute stage, hemorrhagic stroke, disorders of blood clotting, "Aspirin asthma" (bronchospasm in patients receiving aspirin), heavy-stage renal disease, some types of enzyme deficiency ( lack of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase), pregnancy, breast-feeding
Breastfeeding - a personal choice
feeding, age and 18 years of age, individual intolerance of components.
In many diseases cardiomagnil prescribed with caution, as it has a number of side effects. It allergic reactions, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain
Abdominal pain: Types and Symptoms
, Ulcerative lesions and bleeding from the stomach and intestines, liver function abnormalities, seizures, bronchospasm, dizziness, sleep disturbances
Dreams: how to understand our dreams
, Hemorrhagic stroke, changes in the cell composition of blood.
With cardiomagnyl can prevent serious diseases.
