Three questions to know about the prevention of hypertension patients
What should patients with hypertension pay attention to during epidemic prevention?Professor Wen Chao Chao, deputy director of the Department of Cardiology, Second Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University, answered the following three questions that everyone cares about.Question 1: People with hypertension are more susceptible to new coronary pneumonia?Ou Wenchao pointed out that in the early days of the epidemic, people once thought that older people were more susceptible than young people and children.However, following the progress of epidemic prevention and control, the current view is that new coronaviruses are generally susceptible, and everyone must take protective measures according to the guidelines.Question 2: Isolation at home. How do people with hypertension manage their blood pressure?For all patients with hypertension, Ou Wenchao recommends that basic prevention and control measures be taken first, isolate and treat infected patients, protect vulnerable groups, and do daily protection.During the epidemic prevention and control period, home-segregated hypertensive patients should make daily self-blood pressure measurements and insist on regular medication.Some patients may have inconvenience to seek medical treatment and have too many drugs, which can be resolved through online diagnosis and treatment.At the same time, we must eliminate the excessive panic of the epidemic situation, alleviate anxiety and reduce blood pressure fluctuations.During the home period, if there is a large fluctuation in blood pressure and associated symptoms, you can go to a community hospital or even a second-level or higher hospital in a timely manner with effective protection.Patients who are isolated at home should also pay attention to dietary regulation, pay attention to controlling salt intake, properly select a high-quality protein diet, eat more vegetables, and supplement vitamins.Question 3: In the face of an epidemic, should patients with hypertension re-treat ACEI / ARB?Recently, some patients with hypertension have noticed some information circulating in the WeChat circle, saying that oral angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor ACEI or angiotensin receptor antagonist ARB may increase the risk of coronary 北京夜网 virus infection, and they are worried about whether to stop the drugAdjustment.Ou Wenchao explained that the commonly used antihypertensive drugs in clinical practice include diuretics, calcium antagonists, b-blockers, and ACEI / ARB.At present, most cardiovascular experts still believe that the use of ACEI / ARB to increase the risk of infection is insufficient.Therefore, during the epidemic prevention and control, he suggested that patients with hypertension who are taking ACEI or ARB drugs have casual discontinuation.Winter and spring alternate with the high incidence of hypertension and cardio-cerebral vascular disease. It is easy to increase the risk if the drug is stopped without authorization or the antihypertensive drug is not replaced properly and the blood pressure is not monitored in good time.If you need to adjust the medication, it must be done under the guidance of a doctor.(All media reporter Weng Shuxian correspondent Xu Yongyi)
