Flu might increase coronary heart assault threat, Canadian research says

The influenza virus can cause more than just respiratory symptoms, a Canadian study found.

"We found that your risk of a heart attack is six times higher in the first week after the diagnosis of influenza, which is a significant increase for that short period of time", said Dr. Jeff Kwong, lead author of the study and a scientist at the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences and Public Health Ontario.

The findings come in the midst of a particularly brutal flu season. That's the highest level since the swine flu pandemic in 2009.

"We know that influenza vaccines aren't 100 per cent effective", he said.

The CDC recommends heart disease patients to get a flu shot each year. Children with the flu could also vomit and have diarrhea, according to the CDC. Each year in the US, the flu is estimated to cause between 12,000 and 56,000 deaths and up to 710,000 hospitalizations.

Smith says the big takeaway from the study is that everyone should get a flu shot to help prevent infection-which can also lessen the severity of the infection.

To conduct the study, researchers looked at nearly 20,000 adult cases of laboratory-confirmed influenza infection from 2009 to 2014 and identified 332 patients who were hospitalized for a heart attack within one year before and one year after their flu diagnosis. The study found there were 20 admissions per week during the seven days after a flu diagnosis compared with only 3.3 admissions per week in the year before and after a flu diagnosis. Bufalino was not involved in the study.

Among 332 heart attack patients, the complication was six times more likely to strike following a bout of the flu, researchers reported.

He said this means patients with cardiovascular risk factors need to be extra careful.

"Infections increase your clotting". "Getting the flu shot is one additional intervention to take". That imbalance between demand and supply can tip a patient over the edge into a heart attack, she said. Kwong said the topic warranted further study. Sixty nine percent of the 332 people in the study who had a heart attack following a flu diagnosis had not gotten a flu shot, according to the study. "Some people who get vaccinated are still going to get influenza", he said. He added that if you suspect you have the flu, it's especially important to stay home and not go into the office or other public places.

Infection with an influenza virus appears to have the most profound effect, but the risk of having a heart attack was also somewhat increased by such pathogens as respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and cold-causing adenoviruses and rhinoviruses, he said.

It has been observed that the risk for a heart attack was higher within the first week of acquiring influenza.
