Instant Protection From Cardiovascular Diseases With An Ischemic Or Cardiovascular Preconditioning
An earlier study shows that the regular workout (exercise) can stimulate the heart and protect the heart from heart diseases. Workout also promotes healthier heart over a period. But it is less known that the heart of an individual will get the benefits within hours even with a single bout of a workout.
Cardiovascular preconditioning is an experimental technique and this technique was developed in the mid-80s to make a heart unsusceptible to the future ischemic events.
The concept behind this technique is to minimize the ventricular arrhythmias and the size of dead tissue (or dying tissue - infarct) by training the heart and coronary arteries with a brief period of the ischemic event. Restriction of the blood supply can cause a shortage of oxygen and glucose to the heart tissues. The cardiovascular preconditioning against ischemia triggered by a short and non-fatal bout of the workout.
A current study shows an instant protection to the heart from cardiovascular diseases with ischemic or cardiovascular preconditioning by performing a single acute bout of the workout. Researchers have found a protection to heart health and prevention of damage to the heart tissue due to events such as myocardial infarction or heart attack with different types of exercises. Researchers say that the heart can become more resistant to future ischemic events with the frequent cardiovascular preconditioning against ischemia.
Researchers have conducted a study on the animal models and the study shows.
Researchers say that by performing a regular acute bout of the workout will offer benefits even to people with the risk factors to heart disease such as obesity and age. But the risk factors associated with heart diseases may prevent some immediate protective effects against the heart.
Protection to the heart with the exercise preconditioning is an inexpensive, easy and potent therapy. This effective and powerful therapy will require more awareness and optimal therapeutic use.
Researchers say that this study may help in lowering the mortality (death) in the patients who are undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention treatment (also known as coronary angioplasty. PCI). An ideal workout plan should be designed for the cardiovascular preconditioning against ischemia. They call for a further study on humans to confirm this study.
The lead author of the study was Professor Dick Thijssen, Ph.D., Department of Physiology, Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands. The study was published February 2018 in the journal JAMA Cardiology. Title of the article was "Association of Exercise Preconditioning With Immediate Cardioprotection."
