news-id-118493" style="display:inline;">In December, a young woman was admitted to the hospital emergency department with a diagnosis of acute heart failure in very serious condition. Blood pressure dropped sharply, and the patient went into cardiogenic shock. During an ultrasound examination, doctors discovered that the contractility of the heart was reduced.

“According to the parents, the patient took the weight loss medicine Molekula. We concluded that the effects were on the heart because the weight loss drug contains a substance called sibutramine, which leads to cardiovascular weakness. After we failed to normalize the patient’s blood pressure, we promptly connected her to an artificial cardiopulmonary device and a ventilator. Thus, we were able to raise the blood pressure level to 70,” says cardiac surgeon Abunasyr Sukhanov.

The artificial cardiopulmonary device was in the patient’s body for a week. As a result of the treatment, blood pressure also returned to normal. After waking up, the woman was disconnected from the devices. Now the patient’s condition is good.

The patient’s mother thanked the doctors for being able to save her daughter.

“Everything worked out thanks to the skill and qualifications of the doctors. The operation was performed free of charge. “I am grateful to the management of the hospital, the doctors of cardiac surgery, the intensive care unit, and the nursing staff,” the woman said.

It is worth noting that such emergency operations are carried out within the framework of the guaranteed volume of medical care, and planned operations are carried out under the system of compulsory social health insurance.
