In the last few years, the problem of cardiac arrest has become very common. Anyone can face this problem at any time.
However, experts believe that most people have to face the problem of cardiac arrest in the early hours of the day. But have you ever tried to know why more cardiac arrest comes in the morning or early morning?
Experts say that this happens due to the release of some hormones from the body. Around 4 in the morning, our body releases a hormone called cytokinin which can cause arrhythmia or sudden cardiac arrest.
According to a study by researchers at Oregon Health and Science University, our body’s internal clock is responsible for this. According to an expert, there is a biological clock in our body which helps in meeting our daily needs.
Experts said that people are very active during the day. At the same time, people are very tired at night and they need a lot of sleep. Due to this biological clock, in the first few hours of the morning, our blood pressure and heart rate increase.
This increase in heart rate and blood pressure in response to the circadian rhythm greatly irritates the cardiovascular system during the morning.
The circadian rhythm is like a 24-hour clock inside the body that keeps track of your sleeping and waking times when the environment and lights change.
Experts believe that the circadian rhythm should be considered responsible for the strokes and attacks that come in the morning.
According to experts, most cardiac arrests occur between 4 am and 10 am when the blood platelets are sticky and the increased adrenaline release from the adrenaline glands causes plaque to break down in the coronary arteries.
The circadian system releases higher amounts of PAI-1 cells in the morning, which prevents the breakdown of blood clots. The higher the number of PAI-1 cells in the blood, the greater the chance of a blood clot forming in the blood that can lead to a heart attack or cardiac arrest.
Experts said that morning and the last stage of sleep are very dangerous times for heart attack, all types of cardiovascular emergency, sudden cardiac death, aortic rupture and stroke.
Another research conducted at the Queen Mary University of London found that the levels of protective molecules in the blood of patients with cardiovascular disease are significantly lower in the morning. Due to this, the risk of blood clots and heart attack increases significantly at this time.
What factors increase the risk of cardiac arrest?
Experts believe that the risk of cardiac arrest increases significantly due to diabetes, hypertension, and regular smoking.
The expert also said that in today’s time, the young generation is facing cardiac arrest at the very beginning of their life.
There are many reasons behind this, such as wrong lifestyle, poor sleep and wake cycle, increasing stress levels, excessive alcohol consumption, and unhealthy dry habits.
Experts say that if you want to keep your heart healthy, then it is important to get enough sleep of 7 to 8 hours, lead a stress-free life and take a healthy diet.
