Amarnath Yatra: This time Pilgrimage to Amarnaath Going to start from 1st July. This journey will last for more than 60 days. A large number of people have also registered to have darshan of Baba Amarnath. There is also a medical test of the pilgrims before having Baba’s darshan. They are sent forward only after getting fit in this, but it is not necessary that you are fit in the medical test and there will be no problem in going to the height.
Many times it happens that there can be a shortage of oxygen by going to higher areas. In such a situation, there is a need to be careful. Experts say that heart patients should avoid going on Amarnath Yatra.
risk of heart attack again
Safdarjung Hospital, Delhi Dr. Deepak Kumar It is said that heart diseases have increased a lot in the last two years. Since one has to go to a height of several thousand feet to perform Amarnath Yatra, it can cause sudden problems in the body. This is because the weather and conditions are completely different in that area. This can cause BP problems in heart patients. In many cases, there is also a risk of decreasing the oxygen level in the body, which can lead to heart attack.
falling oxygen level is dangerous
senior physician Dr. Ajay Kumar It is said that the level of oxygen in the body can fall in the high altitude area. Due to lack of oxygen, the muscles of the heart have to work harder to pump blood. Due to this there is a risk of inflammation in the body. The pressure on the arteries of the heart is also high, which can lead to heart attack. In some people, this problem occurs so quickly that within a few minutes a person can die.
increased fatigue and stress
Dr. Deepak says that a lot of climbing has to be done during the journey. It takes hard work and there is a risk of increasing stress in the body. If stress increases then BP can also become high. In such a situation, people who are already heart patients can face a lot of trouble. In such a situation, if you are a heart patient and medicines are still going on, then avoid going on a journey.
