Azithromycin Cardiac Arrest Causes and Reviews


The heart has an internal electrical system that controls the rhythm of the heartbeat. Problems can cause abnormal heart rhythms, called arrhythmias. There are many types of arrhythmia. During an arrhythmia, the heart can beat too fast, too slow, or it can stop beating. Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurs when the heart develops an arrhythmia that causes it to stop beating. This is different than a heart attack, where the heart usually continues to beat but blood flow to the heart is blocked.

There are many possible causes of SCA. They include coronary heart disease, physical stress, and some inherited disorders. Sometimes there is no known cause for the SCA.

Without medical attention, the person will die within a few minutes. People are less likely to die if they have early defibrillation. Defibrillation sends an electric shock to restore the heart rhythm to normal. You should give cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to a person having SCA until defibrillation can be done.

If you have had an SCA, an implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) reduces the chance of dying from a second SCA.

Azithromycin Cardiac Arrest Reviews

Jewel.... I too have loss taste and smell. Have u regained yours?

Thu, 08 Mar 2012

I am female, 59, and have not been sick in 6 years.  I got bronchitis for which the doctor prescribed Azithromycin.  Within a day, I had severe panic attacks.  I was very sick and wanted so much to rest but found I had to keep moving to keep the panic attacks at bay. I walked outdoors and my husband drove me around so I could have things to look at.  TV frightened me, books frightened me, the internet frightened me.  I have NEVER had a panic attack before.  I was beyond amazed.  This stuff is poison. I refused to take the 6th dose.  Panic attacks lessened and stopped altogether on 7th day after I first took it.

Wed, 18 Jan 2012

After first dosage 3 days ago, I have not been able to sleep at night.  That on top of the bad cold and upper respiratory infection I am so tired and cannot get well with this going on. I have 2 tabs left and will not take anymore.  I have to get some rest as I work full time and have to be able to do my job.

Fri, 12 Oct 2012
