BBQ Live: The BBQ will start here at... - British Heart Fou...
British Heart Foundation
— If my heart is beating fast, what medications can I take?
— There are many medications that reduce the number of heartbeats and are used for high heart rate (tachycardia), but it is not recommended to take them yourself.
Before you start taking medication, you need to determine the cause of tachycardia. Tachycardia may be a symptom of an organic disease, or it may have physiological causes.
Physiological tachycardia can be triggered by stress or excessive physical activity. In this case, everything is obvious: to get rid of such tachycardia, you need to remove irritating factors.
Irregular and rapid heartbeat is often a symptom of a serious disease — atrial fibrillation. If the heart attack does not go away or repeats often for no apparent reason, accompanied by fluctuations in blood pressure, shortness of breath, heart pain, then you should consult a doctor.
— How do doctors treat arrhythmia?
— Treatment of arrhythmia depends on the type of heart rhythm disorders. Some types of arrhythmias do not require treatment at all, such as atrial extrasystole. In other cases, medication or surgery is necessary.
How to live without a heart attack and stroke. Doctor Anton Rodionov's lecture (+video)
To treat and prevent new attacks of arrhythmia, antiarrhythmics are used. These medications are often used at the beginning of treatment.
Anticoagulants are also prescribed for atrial fibrillation. Since an irregular heartbeat leads to the formation of blood clots (blood clots), anticoagulants are necessary to prevent the formation of a blood clot and, therefore, to prevent stroke.
In addition, in some cases, electric cardioversion is used to stop arrhythmia attacks — a method of influencing the heart muscle using an electric current discharge.
When all methods are ineffective, and the arrhythmia worsens the patient's life, doctors eliminate the focus that sets the wrong rhythm, using radiofrequency ablation. A special diagnostic catheter is inserted into the heart through mini-incisions to determine the source of abnormal electrical signals. As soon as the source of the arrhythmia is detected, radiofrequency energy is transmitted through the catheter, blocking abnormal electrical impulses. This operation improves the quality of life, eliminates the main cause of arrhythmia, and reduces the risk of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation.
I'm on my way Michael, do you have ice 🧊or shall I bring some?
Please. I only have dry ice for effect...
Having my stacked burger washed down with a pint of Black Velvet...
I am here brought coleslaw and potato salad big jar of gherkins in the other universe would give me indigestion but here I can munch away 😂 could I order a burger with bacon! 🍔
Oh my goodness I haven’t thought, I’m a coeliac so in ‘this type’ of Bbq I can have a proper burger in a bun, oh it’s been so long, 😂
Know the feeling we can have what we normally try and avoid 😂 happy bank holiday though I am in Scotland and we haven’t got this holiday 😉 but hey ho
anything on a stick please............ I haven;t had a burger or a sausage for 2 and a half years so at least two of each on the side...... and any bacon baps?
Here's a Mivvi!
What's a Mivvi?
Lolly sold by Lyons Maid in the 70s. It came on a stick! 🤣🤣🤣
There's on for you resting on your ice - best place for it
Ta muchly, I'll go get it
If it's a strawberry one don;t bother with refreshing your lipstick - I am assuming you have dressed for the occasion and are wearing full slap? You'll have such lovely red lips after a Mivvi and your tongue will be an interesting colour too........
Oh definitely full slap, I'm like my granny never leave the house without lipstick 💄
and a hat? I always think a hat makes a statement - even if it is only "pity me" (see little pic if you don't believe that) However am a modern girl and don;t bother with full length gloves at an informal occasion........ but have brought oven gloves just in case I am called upon to help.....
Oh definitely a hat & oven gloves, so much more practical on these occasions. We just need to find someone willing to wear the rubber gloves for the washing up!!
Go on then I’ll do my bit especially as everyone has paper plates etc 😂😂
I'm here. I've left the 🧊 with the drinks.
Mmm, whats cooking? 🤔
Grr... This Wi-Fi is rubbish. Slow, logs you out, limited bandwidth, etc..
Music - Green Onions by Booker T and the MGs, for the younger members the Australian Punk band The Burnt Sausages ......
So now we have on the go: veggie burgers, beef burgers, bratwurst and drumsticks. The veggie ones are on a separate small BBQ as last time someone complained about cross contamination!
Could I have a drumstick 🍗 please. Anyone seen Frank with my drink?
Here I am Lezzers
I never really know how this works do you answer the person who posted last ??
Afternoon All. I've brought a chicken curry with wild brown rice and coriander & garlic naan. Fairly mild and plenty for everyone. Don't put it on the BBQ, it'll just drip through. Can I have a mivvi if there are any left, please?
Probably the best music score ever:
Hello Sorry I am late G & Ts anyone ?
Yes, please, Frank! Got any lime to go in it?
I brought Fever Tree to go with the Gin Lezzers told me it's her No1 choice
Is it that fancy spicy pink fever-tree or the ordinary stuff? I'll stick to the straight tonic please!
Kraken rum anyone ?
Had a cheeky sip, gone to my head already 😆😆
I’ll sniff one if that’s ok, meds and all that 🙄
I just sniff the coke and it's fine !!!
I used to sniff coke. But had to stop due to the pain. Kept getting the ice cubes stuck up my nostrils. 😂😂
That's the advantage of a virtual BBQ, Fluffy. We can eat and drink what we fancy without worrying about meds and heart stuff
Well I’m that case I’ll have 2 sips of rum, then on to the G&T 😆
Lezzers needs a G & T
Quick quiz: Who used to order a G&T from Dave?
Must have ben Lezzers she drinks more G & Ts than you can shake a stick at
Terry of course!!
Wot? Arfur's Terry?
At Prada - she can of course enjoy a G&T. Or a Southern Mimosa - I'm having mine with this lovely bottle of genuine Stolichnaya straight from St Petersburg via a friend in FS but I brought champagne and prosecco for the purists
Vodka is fine for me Sunnie
Can someone wake Lesley that's wake not Woke !!
Has she nodded off already??
Sorry I am late. It took me a little while to find just the right earrings and necklace to give with my dress.
Could I have a glass of English sparkling wine please ?
Indeed, this one is from the Camel Valley. I have just been dealing with what I believe is a fake researcher!
And very nice you look too. Although I'm not sure about the wellies...
Yes Green Wellies would have gone soo well with the Emerald earing and necklace
I'm not sure the Emeralds are genuine 🤔 what do you think?
They are of course genuine😂
Along with the tiara and the silver.
I know but it's been raining and when I took Millie for a walk it was really muddy.
I though I might have got away with it but nothing gets past you eagle eyed people
Michael Hampshire or Dorset for the English Wines
Thank goodness for Alison I am not lost on my own
be back before the end need to take Harley out for a leak !!
Sorry I`m late,but I do so like to make an entrance.This is my alter ego,Patsy.Just give me that crate of Camel Valley sparkling so I can catch up with you early birds.Anyone for a spliffff ?
Afternoon Patsy... is that as in cowpatsyparsley?
A spliffff?? Don't go waving that around, you'll get arrested! (Yes, please). Everyone else has temporarily wandered off, but I'm sure they'll be back
You got it Alison.Didn`t realize it was illegal.Better say I was joking.
If they do come back I`m handing it to you.
I am not sure if I belong in this company
I know!! If we get raided it's every person for themselves! 😂
Getting a little rough for a shy x matelot like me !!! If you believe that you will believe anything
Live a little Prada!
I think I have done my fair share of living and a bit extra as well lol
I want to know what the "bit extra"was!!!
Harley is my neighbours Dog but I walk him everyday he is a Cocker !
Now tea is ready and it's not virtual it's Gammon steak and 140cals of chips ie 200g !!
Sorry Michael,I`ve lowered the tone of your BBQ.Breeding,or lack thereof will out.xx
Sorry I’m late. Picking windfall pears to make a crumble. And cream of course. Anyone got any room left?
Afternoon. Everyone's fallen down drunk at the moment, but we expect them to rally round for the last 20 minutes!
Yes please to crumble & cream
Hope everyone is having a good time. Unfortunately being in rehab a number of other issues cropped up!
Two bratwurst on one bun with a splash of mustard I think..
I have a coffee machine so your coffee of choice is available plus tea and hot chocolate...
Could I have a latte first please, followed by a very strong espresso, but Have no idea where I am so won’t be able to get back and get it 😳😳
Hot chocolate please Michael.
Who's clearing up? Fluffy was going to do the washing up but she seems to have disappeared, can we check shes not lying in a hedge somewhere?
Not in a hedge, but haven’t got a clue where I am !!!!!!!!
Please can all strangers leave by 7:30 as the BBQ site will disappear into the Interweb. Good night and enjoy the rest of the evening...
Thank you Michael for organising as always it’s such a boost made me smile throughout the afternoon. Have a good night hope the gym goes really well tomorrow.
Thank you so much for the Bbq loved the music, food was delicious, I know you’re going through a really hard life changing time and still thought of doing this and making so many people happy, you’re a star 🌟 looking forward to the next party, hope we can get together and have a Xmas one. !!
Thank you... I now think a good gap between virtual events is important as well as a day or two's notice.
Basically you have to get on with life. If I sat in the wheelchair feeling sorry for myself as I will not grow a new leg. What I do want is for the NHS to monitor my right leg a lot better. It also suffers from PAD and I am now totally convinced early intervention is absolutely critical!
Thank you Michael for arranging the bbq and thanks everyone for a wonderfully entertaining day. We all need a bit of sillyness now & then in our challenging lifes! 😘
It was a blast as they say....
Can the person who couldn't resist taking the loo rolls please fess up
Did SpiritoftheFloyd turn up? He's the usual suspect 🤔
Adding my voice to the chorus of sincerely meant thanks, Michael, this has been a perfect Bank Holiday BBQ gathering, thank-you for organising it!
Unfortunately I had other things to do for most of yesterday and wonder if there are any doggy bags?
Many thanks Michael. Really had a giggle !! xxx
