Who is easy to "target" with sudden death? And how can it be prevented? In order to answer the doubts of the public, the reporter recently interviewed experts in pharmacy and internal medicine.

"Sudden death prevention package" has become a health secret for young people

The reporter searched for "sudden death prevention package" on major social media and found that many netizens were sharing how to eat health care products. Netizen Sydney shared her own "set meal": 10 capsule after coenzyme Q1 brunch to protect heart health; 2 capsules of fish oil after dinner, skin care and sleep aid; 2 tablets of vitamin B complex after breakfast, oil control; Vitamin C 1 tablet after breakfast, remove yellow and brighten; Lutein 1 capsule a day, eye protection..."Because of the needs of work, I stay up late almost every day, and I always feel tightness in my chest, especially after staying up until 3 a.m., it is more difficult to fall asleep, and I am afraid that I will die suddenly one day." Sydney said she works for an Internet company and often works overtime and is stressful.

Like many netizens, after learning about the "sudden death prevention package", Sydney bought coenzyme Q10 and fish oil with the mentality of giving it a try, hoping to protect the heart and improve sleep. After taking two supplements for more than 1 month, Sydney felt that her sleep was better and her chest tightness improved. "I don't know if it's the reason why I eat too much fish oil, although I don't have acne, but my skin has become oily. My friend said that vitamin B can control oil, and I bought a multivitamin to take it together. Sydney said, unknowingly put together the "sudden death prevention package" circulating on the Internet.

According to rumors, the "sudden death prevention package" began to be popular from abroad, and soon became popular on domestic social media, becoming a "health cheat" sought after by some young people. Although there are various versions of the "sudden death prevention package" circulating on the Internet, it mainly contains four health products such as coenzyme Q10, fish oil, lutein, and multivitamins, especially coenzyme Q4 is the core of the "sudden death prevention package".

Coenzyme Q10 has a certain health effect, but normal people do not need additional supplementation

Is CoQ10 really so amazing? Wang Fenghua, director of the pharmacy department of Hunan Provincial Occupational Disease Prevention and Treatment Hospital, introduced that coenzyme Q10 is a naturally occurring enzyme in the human body, which directly participates in cell metabolism and can provide sufficient oxygen and energy to brain cells and cardiomyocytes, so it will have a certain effect of relieving fatigue.

"It should be psychological comfort more than practical effect." For netizens who said that "I feel energetic after eating coenzyme Q10", Wang Fenghua believes that there is no lack of exaggerated ingredients. Talking about whether coenzyme Q10 has the effect of "preventing sudden death", she said that the substance has a certain role in protecting the cardiovascular system, but normal people do not need additional supplements. "In special physiological or disease conditions, the content of coenzyme Q10 in the human body will be reduced, and it is mainly used clinically for the treatment of myocarditis and chronic heart failure." However, this needs to be evaluated by a professional physician, and the dosage must also follow the doctor's advice. ”

Therefore, the "sudden death prevention package" spread on the Internet can really play a certain role in cardiovascular is coenzyme Q10, but it can only play an auxiliary role, fish oil, lutein, multivitamin and other health products do not have a "sudden death" effect.

Among them, fish oil is a kind of oil extracted from deep-sea fish, because it contains essential fatty acids that are beneficial to the human body, commonly known as "brain gold", to some extent, it has the effect of lowering blood lipids and preventing arteriosclerosis. Lutein is a carotenoid that is the main pigment present in the macular area of the retina of the human eye and has a certain effect on protecting the eyes. Vitamin D3 in multivitamins can promote calcium and phosphorus absorption, prevent rickets and osteoporosis; Vitamin C can participate in the formation of antibodies and collagen in the body, tissue repair, metabolism, utilization and synthesis, maintain immune function, and promote the absorption of non-heme iron.

Wang Fenghua reminded the public that the health supplement ingredients in the "sudden death prevention package" can be ingested under the normal diet structure, and there is no need to supplement it specifically, and blind supplementation may be counterproductive. For example, long-term overdose of coenzyme Q10 can cause epigastric pain, loss of appetite, nausea, diarrhea and other symptoms, and it interacts with some drugs such as the anticoagulant warfarin, which can reduce its effectiveness. Long-term overdose of vitamin D3 can cause poisoning, hypercalcemia and so on. Long-term excessive supplementation of lutein, the human body can not fully absorb, will cause accumulation in the body, skin yellowing or diarrhea side effects; At the same time, due to different manufacturers and different specifications, blind overdose will increase the burden on the liver.

If the public finds that the body is in a sub-healthy state or has symptoms, they should follow the doctor's guidance, rather than blindly supplementing the health products spread on the Internet, especially the health care product "package".

Prevention of sudden death should pay attention to these red flags

Zeng Yan, director of the first department of the Hunan Provincial Occupational Disease Prevention and Control Hospital, said that although sudden death is sudden, it can be prevented and controlled. Sudden death refers to the sudden or unexpected nonviolent death of a person who is outwardly healthy or unexpected, with or without external causes. Currently, there is no uniform provision for "sudden", but it usually refers to death within 1 hour of onset.

Clinically, sudden death is divided into sudden cardiac death and non-sudden cardiac death, and sudden cardiac death accounts for more than 80% of the total population. According to the statistics of the National Center for Cardiovascular Diseases, there are up to 55,50 sudden cardiac deaths in China every year. In sudden cardiac death, about <>% of patients are due to coronary heart disease. In addition, acute myocardial infarction, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, congenital coronary abnormalities, valvular cardiomyopathy, etc. may also be the cause of sudden cardiac death.

Causes of non-sudden cardiac death include other systemic disorders such as airway obstruction, respiratory disorders such as sleep apnea, or acute cerebrovascular disease; It may also be caused by drug or poison poisoning, allergies, mental stress, water and electrolyte metabolism disorders, serious infections, etc.

For young people without cardiovascular disease, the high-risk factors for sudden death are mostly bad living habits, such as long-term lack of sleep, staying up late, and irregular diet. Unhealthy lifestyle habits such as insufficient sleep, deep sleep, and nutritionally unbalanced diet will lead to multiple organ disorders, the collapse of the immune system, and the risk of sudden death will increase.

Zeng Yan said that although the sudden death occurred suddenly, it was not without trace. Before sudden death occurs, the body often sends warning signals. For example, coronary heart disease is the main cause of sudden death, so most of the risk factors for coronary heart disease are also risk factors for sudden death, including smoking, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular, etc. It is recommended that citizens with a family history of related diseases strengthen cardiac examination in health examination, especially people over 40 years old. Other members of the public should also pay close attention to their health conditions, such as unexplained heartache, palpitations, arrhythmias, etc., and be vigilant against the occurrence of coronary heart disease.

Zeng Yan emphasized that unlike the inherent cognition that cardiovascular disease is a "geriatric disease", the trend of younger cardiovascular disease has become increasingly obvious in recent years, and some of the onset is insidious and the pain is not concentrated in the chest, and there may be back pain, toothache, as well as abdominal pain, vomiting and other digestive tract symptoms. If members of the public feel that they have been overworked for a period of time, and at the same time perceive that their immunity has weakened, they are prone to colds, infections and other conditions, it is recommended to pay attention to their own health status and be alert to the occurrence of sudden death. If you are not suitable to seek medical attention in time, to eliminate risks.

For most healthy people, instead of "preventing sudden death" through health care products, it is better to change bad living habits, control weight, ensure adequate sleep, maintain a stable mood, avoid overeating, eat more fresh vegetables and fruits, and moderately increase exercise.
