Bleeding is chiefly called the blood loss that occurs due to blood vessel disturbance. The vascular integrity may be compromised by trauma, purulent melting, hypertension and influence of toxins. Several changes in blood chemistry can also cause bleeding. It is provoked by a wide range of the sicknesses such as sepsis, cancer, scarlet fever, hemophilia, jaundice, scurvy, and different others. When the hemorrhage mostly occurs in the body cavity (peritoneal, pleural), it is called the internal bleeding. The hemorrhage into the tissue is chiefly well-known as a hematoma. If any cloth is soaked with blood, it is said about subcutaneous, intracerebral hemorrhage and so on.
The internal bleeding can occur in patients with atherosclerosis, cancer, syphilis, heart disease, sepsis, and many others. Sometimes the cause of hemorrhage is a sharp increasing in blood pressure. The internal blood hemorrhage may occur in almost any organ of the human body or cavities. This may be the esophagus, stomach, rectum, bladder, kidneys, lungs, brain ventricles, pleural and abdominal cavity, and cranial joint cavity and several others. Very often there are cases of uterine bleeding by female individuals. The main general symptomatic picture of internal hemorrhage may be chiefly supplemented by specific symptoms. Thus, the general symptoms (subjective symptoms) of this type of bleeding are excessive thirst, dry mouth, weakness, dizziness, shortness of breath, pale skin, rapid pulse and hypotension.
The symptoms of bleeding also depend on the species and type of damaged vessels. Also, the hemorrhage indications may depend from the localization of the injury. For example, there are can be such symptoms of brain bleed as: the brain is compressed; there is tightness in the head, especially in the temporal part. The pleural hemorrhage (hemothorax) provokes some compression of the lungs, the appearance of shortness in breathing. The ruptures of the abdominal cavity causing congestion blood (hemoperitoneum) in it: a person has abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. The hemorrhage into the cavity of the heart membrane causes a decreasing in activity of the heart, cyanosis; venous pressure is mostly enlarged at the same time. The arterial bleeding occurs when the disturbances to the arteries (carotid, femoral, axillary and others.) It is the most dangerous, because the blood is thrown out by pulsating stream very quickly. The swift acute anemia comes; blood color - bright red. The victim becomes pale, his pulse is speeded up, blood pressure decreases rapidly, dizziness appears, nausea and vomiting, fainting also manifest. The death may be due to oxygen starvation or cardiac stopping.
The venous bleedings mainly occur in violation of the veins integrity. Blood flowing uniformly continuous stream and has a dark cherry color. If the intravenous pressure is not too high, the blood can spontaneously stop forming of fixed thrombus. The capillary hemorrhage is less dangerous and it may stop bleeding independently. The risk of capillary bleeding is only in illnesses that affect blood clotting (hemophilia, sepsis and hepatitis). The internal hemorrhage is always dangerous to life, for this reason, in the presence of bleeding symptoms should immediately seek medical help.
As the cause of bleeding is different disorders, it is very important to timely treatment of all sicknesses and comply all recommendations of the physician. To avoiding of hemorrhage in various illnesses doctor may recommend the following groups of medicine for bleeding including
Also you need to take different vitamins or herbal supplements including (Becadexamin, Chyavanaprasha, Vitamin C, Gokshura, Kapikachhu, Neurobion Forte (B1+B6+B12), Punarnavaand many others) for preventing the bleedings and improving of immune system of every patient.
