The Brazilian Cardiology Society (SBC) is alerting cardiologists do Rio Grande do Sul, mainly in cities around Santa Maria, to the possibility of increased cardiovascular events in the coming weeks. The recommendation came from the Committee on Cardiovascular Emergencies and Resuscitation of the SBC, which is coordinated by the cardiologist Sergio Timerman.

He remembers that great tragedies, such as occurred in the town of Santa Maria, in the weeks following trigger a rise in the numbers of heart attacks and strokes because of excessive stress whereby relatives, firefighters, friends and the general population passed. Sergio Timerman make available to cardiologists state a scientific analysis of the indices of heart attacks, strokes and sudden deaths-that affected people who were physically or emotionally close to major accidents in recent years.

The SBC also just made available on its Internet portal I Diretriz de Ressuscitação Cardiopulmonar e Cuidados Cardiovasculares de Emergência da Sociedade Brasileira de Cardiologia a summary of recently published.

The coordinator of the Emergency Committee Cardiovascular Resuscitation and SBC account that scientific work after earthquakes and tsunamis in Japan, after suicide bombings in Israel and attacks made during and after the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York, show that increased up to three times the number of deaths.

Doctors termed the effect of postraumatic stress syndrome and studies show that people who watched the tragedy, relatives of victims of the same and also the firefighters and police officers involved in care have greater chance of suffering sudden death due to strokes or heart attacks in the weeks following the disaster. The same may occur in Rio Grande do Sul, we must be on guard and ready to help people, concludes Timerman.
