Obsessive-compulsive disorder

In this article, we will look at what obsessive-compulsive disorder is, what its symptoms are, and what obsessions people with OCD have. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a syndrome in which a person has obsessive thoughts (obsessions), which forces him to perform certain actions (compulsions). Obsession is a thought or desire that occurs periodically in the head of an OCD patient. This idea does not give a person peace of mind, prompting him to compulsions. The most common obsessions in OCD patients are: Concerns about symmetry, order, and accuracy.

Stanin – what is it?

We are used to treating the term “cholesterol” with caution — everyone knows that the so-called ” bad ” cholesterol leads to atherosclerosis and other dangerous diseases. At the same time, it is impossible to do without cholesterol — within certain limits, it is necessary for the body, it is produced by internal organs, it enters the blood along with the food we take. It is recommended to monitor cholesterol closely — and in case of an increase in its level, start taking medications. Statins demonstrate high therapeutic effectiveness — what are they, and what are their benefits? How exactly do they work? Continue reading

Tachycardia: symptoms and treatment

Perfect heart function remains completely invisible to us — we do not remember that we have such an organ. Accordingly, any, even minor failures in its operation immediately cause alarm and mild panic. One of the most common and relatively mild abnormalities in the heart is tachycardia. Let’s see what causes it, how it manifests itself, and how to get rid of it. What triggers tachycardia, and how to find out? In order to pump blood through the body, the heart needs to beat — and this beating is due to myocardial contractions. A uniform and healthy rhythm is set by a special nerve node, the so-called sinus in the right atrium. If the number of pulses sent by the node along the nerve endings exceeds the norm, the heartbeat becomes noticeably faster — this is the condition called tachycardia. Continue reading

What is HIV and what is AIDS? 

Contrary to the opinion of many people, HIV and AIDS are not the same thing. In this article, we will understand what these unpleasant words mean, as well as how they differ from each other. HIV (full name-human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that causes serious changes in the human body and weakens the immune system so that it is not able to resist other viruses and bacteria. HIV destroys macrophages and T-lymphocytes, which are used by the human immune system to fight pathogens. The virus itself can only live in the human body, and outside of this environment, it dies in a matter of minutes. AIDS (full name-acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) is a disease that manifests itself as an extremely weakened immune system, the last stage of development of HIV infection, where there are those diseases that are very difficult to cure, and most often they end in the death of the patient.

What is a myocardial infarction?

Throughout life, our heart beats steadily and continuously, dispersing the blood through the body. In a healthy state, it does not make itself felt-but the pain in the heart is very dangerous. It can also signal a myocardial infarction. This word — myocardium-is called the muscle tissue of the heart. A heart attack means the death of these tissues due to the fact that their blood supply has abruptly stopped. An ischemic attack occurs in this way-due to a blockage of the vessel, blood stops flowing to the tissues, which leads to their rapid necrosis. What is a heart attack? Most often, you can hear three diagnoses: Acute heart attack. In the everyday sense, we are used to seeing a heart attack as an instant “blow”.But of course, in fact, the disease develops gradually. The moment of blockage of blood vessels is the “acute” stage of a heart attack, and immediately followed by just the “acute” stage — the period of time during which the tissues become dead and turn into a scar.
