Stressful life clubbed with a vice is a lethal formula for cardiac arrest in the age bracket of 40-60. Doctors in Ahmedabad concern for youngsters’ lives as the trend continues to be on the rise.
Social media, television channels and practically all news portals were filled to the brim with the news of the death of the actor and Big Boss season 13 winner Siddharth Shukla. The late actor died by severe cardiac arrest and was apparently brought dead to Mumbai’s Cooper Hospital. Shukla was only 40-years-old. His sudden demise definitely shook his family but the news of his death also left his friends and fan – from the entertainment industry, sports, business and more – grim and teary-eyed.
“There, however, seems to be a rising trend of sudden cardiac arrests followed by massive heart attack or irregular heartbeat, known as, Ventricular Fibrillation or Ventricular Tachycardia, in individuals younger than 40 years. This has emerged as a matter of concern, especially in the last decade or so,” said Dr Anish Chandarana, Interventional Cardiologist and Executive Director from CIMS Hospital, Ahmedabad.
Adding to this Dr Tapan Shah an MD Physician from Ahmedabad stated, “With rising earning capacity of the younger generation and degrading lifestyle, youngsters are becoming prone to massive heart attacks or sudden cardiac arrest. Strain and stress of modern life are also one of the most common triggering factors of heart attacks in youngsters, both men and women alike.”
Sidharth Shukla who had appeared as ‘Toofani senior’ in Bigg Boss 14 had told a co-contestant that he used to smoke in the earlier season (that he went on to win). It appeared from the clip that he had quit smoking.
