If you are a heart patient, maintaining your health during cold weather is a big challenge. For those with coronary artery disease, cold temperatures can lead to ischemic heart attacks, causing bouts of angina or even heart attacks. Being in a cold environment causes our bodies to make certain physiological adjustments to maintain basic body temperatures.

These regular adjustments can be a challenge for people with heart disease. Among other things, cold temperatures cause:
Increased heart rate. Increased blood pressure, Increased tendency for blood clotting.
Therefore, the winter season requires special precautions against exposure to relapses or heart attacks, including:

Do not go out especially in the late times of the night

Wear good clothes and make sure to keep your body warm, especially for those suffering from problems in the coronary arteries

Do not go out in cold weather after eating

Drink warm drinks to adjust the body temperature

No exposure to direct cold, especially out of a warm place to the cold directly

Avoid overheating or sweating because it leads to low blood pressure

Get the flu vaccine, after consulting your doctor
