【新山立康专科医院】从“心”出发 Don’t be a statistic, start living a heart-healthier lifestyle today!

大人某日於社交媒体上阅报时,瞧见了醒目的大标题,心脏病不仅日趋年轻化,且也高居我国,同时也是全世界的头号健康杀手!由于马来西亚属三高指数(高血压、胆固醇、糖尿病)偏高的国家,加上吸烟、平日缺乏运动及健康的饮食习惯也使得心脏病的风险指数及发病率增高。很多人以为心脏病只会发生于年迈体弱者身上,其实不然,心脏病的风险因素分别为性別、遗传、种族、年龄。

年初,大人公司旗下为立康专科医院设计了驻院生活刊物,首期主题正好是大人一直以来想要与各位分享的内容,为了想要让更多看官们有机会了解心脏病,大人特征得新山立康专科医院同意,授权转载以下病患病例分享,更多有关立康专科医院的资讯可详阅刊物《ER – Experience Regency》或亲临查询。

The human heart is really the most amazing organ in our body. It beats even before we are born into this world and continuing to do so until we take our last breath. For as long as we are alive, our heart is hard at work. However, with increasing affluence and lifestyle changes, cardiovascular diseases has emerged among the world’s top 3 killers for the past decade, with 2 in 10 Malaysians especially vulnerable according to the National Heart Institute. Sadly, despite these chronic diseases being prevalent amongst Malaysian adults, regardless of race, gender, or AGE, many Malaysians just seem to be oblivious to the truth and continue to indulge in an unhealthy lifestyle, such as physical inactivity, unhealthy diet, smoking, excessive stress and excessive alcohol intake!

Luckily, ER is here to the “rescue”. Unlike your normal SOS wake-up call, ER is a lifestyle publication that makes being an educated healthcare consumer easy and fun! Come 2017, and in collaboration with Regency Specialist Hospital, together we strive to educate our community on the importance of preventative exams, to provide more useful insights to heart diseases, and the appropriate treatment options and preventive care. Other useful tips such as cardiac rehabilitation, heart healthy diet and recipes from the nutritionists and celebrity chef Agnes Chang are also included so as to put us on the right track while maintaining our lifestyle. In naming this magazine ER, we hope you will “Enjoy Reading” the publication and derive satisfaction from “Experience Regency” top notch services. Power your life and grab your inaugural issue of ER TODAY!

Meanwhile, let’s hear it from Mr Sia, who recently survived a heart failure, and is now more determined than ever to make a change today, live healthily and stay free from chronic heart diseases.

请问你是怎么发觉你的病情的?
How did you first found out about your medical condition?

我在赶着去援助遇上车祸的岳父后突然晕倒。当时以为是因为天气炎热,再加上情绪紧张造成的体力不支。可是接着几天,体力越来越差,只走几步就让我喘得很急,手脚开始麻痹及冒冷汗。在我太太的坚持下,我才到医院检查。
I felt fatigue and experienced shortness of breath while attending to my father-in-law back in October which I attributed to the weather. However, my condition had since deteriorated and so my wife insisted that I admitted myself to the hospital for a thorough medical checkup.

那你是怎么会来到立康专科医院呢?
What brought you to Regency Specialist Hospital?

我最初在新山一间私人医院做检查,报告显示我的心血管已经完全阻塞,必须立刻接受手术。但是,政府医院的排期需至少2-3星期。当时心里忐忑不安,即不敢冒险也对手术的过程不了解,在朋友的介绍下,我就来到了立康
My medical checkup at a local private hospital confirmed that I’m suffering from coronary heart disease and required immediate surgery, but I wasn’t able to undergo surgery in public hospitals for another 2-3 more weeks. In the end, I decided to turn my attention to Regency at my friend’s recommendation.

你的病因是什么?
What is the cause of your heart failure?

手术前,我每天抽15支烟。医生告知我,抽烟会造成心脏疾病时,我才惊觉抽烟也是致病的原因之一。现在我不敢抽了,我要成为戒烟宣传大使,哈哈!
To be honest, I cannot live without cigarettes before my surgery, and I had 15 puffs each day without fail. Upon learning that smoking could actually increase the risk of coronary heart disease, I made up my mind to quit smoking for good, and I’m more than willing to become your quit smoking campaign ambassador if there’s one haha!

是什么原因让你决定在立康做手术呢?
What made you decided to undergo your treatment at Regency?

这里的医生很有耐心,解释得很详细。心脏胸腔外科医生 Dr.Ho 还嘱咐我和他保持联络以追踪我的病情。这让我对这里的医生产生了信心,因为我觉得病人和医生在手术前有良好的沟通交流,手术已成功了一半,也是让我决定在这里动手术的原因。
The doctors here are highly professional and made me fully understand and aware of my medical condition, and Dr. Ho from the Heart Centre offered a huge confidence booster with his experience and personality, so I’ve no qualms about leaving myself in the care and good hands of the medical team at Regency.

手术后的感觉怎么样?
How do you feel after the surgery?

非常的辛苦,很难入眠,情绪也很负面。Dr.Ho 甚至担心我有自杀的倾向。还好 ICU/SDU 的医护人员在手术后都来看望、关心我,这点让我很感动。
I felt very miserable and had sleepless nights after my operation but fortunately Dr. Ho was always within reach to offer me his support. The medical team from the ICU/SDU also offered me their undivided attention and put my heart at ease. In fact, everyone came to visit me and offered their well-wishes after my surgery that I was touched beyond words.

手术前后的最大分别是?
How’s life before and after your surgery?

最大的差别是心态!之前认为一切都是理所当然,喝酒、抽烟、熬夜等无所不做。进院后才惊觉,原来很多关心我的朋友和家人,朋友甚至还担心得流泪了。由于没有照顾好自己的健康而让他们担心,深感抱歉。经历了这些,现在的我才领悟要珍惜身边的人和事。你们知道吗?直到住院的最后一天我才发现这里最美的风景在 SDU 五楼!
This chapter in my life made a huge difference both physically and psychologically. I’m no longer taking my health for granted, and I’m going to bid farewell to drinks, cigarettes and late nights for good. It’s also heartening and comforting to realise the care and support of my family, relatives and friends all these while. Life couldn’t have been better and more beautiful from now on. Guess what, the view outside my window of my ward at SDU5 was one of the most beautiful scenery I have seen for a long time.

 

有什么话想对立康专科医院说的吗?
Any final thoughts?

这里的医护人员非常认真,整个心脏医疗团队的素质很好,富有责任感。最感动的是医生愿意和病人直接交流,让我在整个过程中很安心。我想这是病人最需要的,希望你们可以继续保持这种服务精神!
The professionalism and care by the entire medical team at Regency Specialist Hospital proved to the guiding light in the darkest hours of my life. I was made to felt “alive” again from the constant attention and interactions, and you could say my whole treatment and experience was made as “painless” as possible. Thank you, Regency for everything and keep it up!
