Below post has been circulating on social media.
Dear All: Pls note this as very important for all shared by a doctor. – for those who get up at night from sleep to urinate or early morning
Each individual must take note of the 3 x 1/2 minutes.
Why is it important? 3 x 1/2 minutes will greatly reduce the number of sudden deaths. Often this occurs, a person who still look healthy, has died in the night. Often we hear stories of people, yesterday I was chatting with him, why did he suddenly die?
The reason is that when you wake up at night to go to the bathroom is often done in a rush. Immediately we stand, the brain lacks blood flow. Why “3 x 1/2 minute” very important? In the middle of the night when you are awakened by the urge to urinate for example, ECG pattern can change. Because getting up suddenly, the brain will be anaemic and causes heart failure due to lack of blood. Advised to practice “3 1/2 minutes,” which are:
1. When waking from sleep, lie in bed for the 1st 1/2 minute;
2. Sit in bed for the next 1/2 minute;
3. Lower your legs, sitting on the edge of the bed for the last half-minute. After 3 x 1/2 minutes, you will not have anaemic brain and heart will not fail, reducing the possibility of a fall and sudden death.
Share with family, friends & loved ones. It can occur regardless of age; young or old.
Sharing is Caring. If you already know, regard this as refresher.” please try to forward this important Health tips to all your groups, and you/your family also should follow it.
Quoting from a doctor’s reply from the article at the link show below.
No I would disregard this statement ….no medical phenomenon as to sudden death be caused by getting up at night to urinate …no to that —
Frequent urination at night can be a sign of some medical conditions…
Symptom of diabetes or benign prostatic hypertrophy or a sign of sleep apnea may be associated with more often some need to get up to urinate at night …
Getting up at night has no special need for such a gradual rise…no to that … There is nothing magical about 3 1/2 minutes ….
The reference to sudden death most closely would be a fit to the fact that 10 percent of heart attacks may present with sudden death ( caused by a fatal arrhythmia of the heart)
We could have a discussion of heart disease/ BPH/ obstructive sleep apnea ….
Getting up at night is not associated mysteriously with sudden death as suggested by the above article …
The above is not true at all as it is presented…
