Happy events can encourage ‘Broken Heart Syndrome’
#Cosmoread: A rare condition as “broken heart syndrome” is usually an emotionally devastating than or stressful event is brought to you by. But now, a new study shows the state of Europe also happy events and positive emotions can be brought on by.
This is the first time researchers have broken heart syndrome, which causes sudden weakness in the heart mus
cle, but temporary findings Thursday (March 3) published in the European Heart Journal is attached in accordance with the pleasant experiences. However, many of the negative forms of emotional stress, grief, fear, anger and anxiety, including the condition is known to trigger episodes.
Those who experience the syndrome such as chest pain and shortness of breath are symptoms of broken heart syndrome can be easily confused with a heart attack, the study said. These symptoms usually appear within minutes or hours after a person has been through a stressful experience.
The syndrome is also known as stress cardiomyopathy, but basically takotsubo syndrome (TTS) Japanese researcher who first described it in 1990, was named by the researcher said that because the condition of the heart in people with a bulging appearance resembled the shape of “takotsubo,” or octopus dishes.
Broken Heart Syndrome previous studies on the negative symptoms of the condition are known to bring on stress have focused exclusively on. But the new study researchers thought delightful experience can trigger the condition in some people.
To find out, the 1,750 people who Takotsubo international registry, men and women in the United States and Europe have been diagnosed with the condition in the eight countries which were part of a database to analyze data collected.
The researchers found that 485 participants in the study before the onset of their symptoms certain emotional ran. Of these, the vast majority of the participants of such a love, an accident or illness of a friend, an argument, or the death of a frightening experience as a financial problem as a negative emotional events experienced.
But 20 people, or about 4 percent of the participants, in a positive emotional event – a birthday party, becoming a grandmother or great-grandmother, a son of the marriage, or their symptoms from a favorite relative -brought an unexpected journey.
Broken heart syndrome, known to cause these findings broaden the spectrum of emotions, study author Dr. Elena R. Ghadri, University Hospital of Zurich in Switzerland, a cardiologist and research fellow said.
Although only a small percentage of participants with “broken heart syndrome” or socially desirable a joyful event were revealed, the researchers found that positive emotions can lead to TTS were surprised to find, Ghadri said.
20 individuals with a positive trigger as researchers dubbed the “Happy Hearts,” a negative past event, classified as 465 people compared them with “broken heart.”
Such cardiovascular risk, heart lab and imaging tests, symptoms, and as a result of hospital stays – – for a variety of factors both groups, researchers reviewed the medical records of “Happy Hearts” and the many the similarities found “broken heart.”
Women in both groups represented about 95 percent of those affected. And two groups, such as chest pain and shortness of breath had similar symptoms when they were admitted to hospital.
The study also found that there were happy heart slightly older (71), on average, Broken Hearts (65) than.
A heart and mind connection?
The difference between the two groups noticeable imaging test showed that happy hearts were more likely to have a certain type of syndrome, midventricular called type than was heartbroken. (TTS four different types.) Thirty -five percent of heart happy, compared to 16 percent of broken hearts, midventricular was kind.
While this is an interesting and novel observation, the underlying mechanisms could be responsible for this finding is unknown, Ghadri told Live Science.
The research team now with a “happy heart” syndrome and examine brain activity patterns in people with “broken heart syndrome” between mind and heart to learn more about the interaction patterns that will compare to those found in people . For now, it’s really the heart of a person’s emotional states play a role in the development of muscle weakening condition is unclear.
A hypothesis that stress hormones such as adrenaline, a surge of temporarily causing damage to the hearts of some people, the Mayo Clinic said.
Maybe happy and negative events, while different in nature, the central nervous system, which eventually can cause TTS share a common emotional route, Ghadri guessed.
Although the researchers to learn more, the good news is that most people with TTS is often a quick and full recovery. The heart is weakened only for short periods of time, and it is a permanent or long-term damage to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, according to information from the leads.
