Sub health insider pushes people to death from overwork

In the current competitive society, many people work hard in order to pursue high wages, buy houses and cars, and get promoted positions, so that they bear too much psychological pressure. They work overtime and stay up late endlessly and are unable to take health care. These are eroding our health bit by bit, and eventually leading to “death from overwork”.

According to statistical data and expert analysis, heart disease, stroke and mental disorder are the three “behind the scenes” of “overwork death”. In recent years, “death from overwork” has often been reported, and the cause of death of the deceased is often described as “overwork and sudden death”. In the eyes of people with medical knowledge, this is obviously vague, and the corresponding suggestion of “don’t be too tired” has become aimless. What diseases are hidden behind “death from overwork”? According to statistical data and expert analysis, heart disease, stroke and mental disorder are the three “behind the scenes” of overwork death.

from overtime work in Japan

The word “death from overwork” comes from Japanese, which refers to death caused by overwork and heart attack and stroke caused by stress. The first confirmed death from overwork can be traced back to 1969, when a 29 year old male newspaper publisher in Japan died of a stroke; Then, in the 1980s, several senior executives in prime of life died suddenly in Japan. There were no signs of illness before, which immediately attracted the media’s attention. The term “death from overwork” was officially born.

It is found that people who work more than 12 hours a day and 6-7 days a week will inevitably suffer physical and mental damage year after year. In 2007, Japan’s Ministry of health, labor and welfare announced that 147 people died of overwork nationwide, most of whom died of heart attacks or cerebrovascular strokes. Overwork also led to 208 people suffering from serious illnesses, 819 people suffering from mental and psychological disorders, and 176 people committed suicide (including attempted suicide).

the three “behind the scenes” are the main incentives

1. Heart disease myocarditis is the most common inducement

The common inducement of death from overwork is myocarditis. It is reported that a 28 year old armed police soldier was patrolling in cold weather for three consecutive days. He still worked with a cold and failed to keep up with nutrition. As a result, he died of myocarditis. “If myocarditis is not treated in time, a variety of sequelae can occur: heart enlargement and accelerated heart rate; myocardial fibers produce scars and contractures, which can induce arrhythmias.”

In addition to myocarditis, fatigue can also rupture aortic aneurysms. For example, patients with Marfan’s syndrome can suddenly occur during vigorous exercise; Arrhythmia – caused by vagus nerve disorder and endocrine imbalance after fatigue. If severe atrioventricular block occurs, it can also cause sudden cardiac arrest; Coronary heart disease – stress and tiredness accelerate heart rate, increase blood pressure, deplete myocardial energy reserve, and then cause coronary artery spasm.

Death from overwork is rare among farmers who have been engaged in strong physical labor for a long time, because they exercise every day, eat mainly coarse grain, and have a relatively healthy cardiovascular system. People who sit in the office for a long time are prone to vasospasm, coronary artery ischemia, myocardial strain and other problems when their cardiovascular system does not adapt to changes when they are suddenly tired, and the risk of death from overwork is relatively high.

In terms of treatment, the folk superstition is that some valuable and even priceless “magic pills” can bring the dead back to life when a critical illness occurs. Some genuine Chinese medicines can dilate the coronary artery. For example, it is effective to take 5-6 quick acting jiuxinnao pills under the tongue when angina pectoris occurs. However, some folk “secret recipes” have unknown ingredients, and eating them indiscriminately will delay the disease.

2. Cerebral apoplexy with abnormal blood vessels may be asymptomatic.

A considerable number of young and middle-aged people who die of overwork die from congenital abnormal cerebrovascular hemorrhage. The common abnormalities are the anterior communicating artery and posterior communicating artery of the brain, most of which are congenital aneurysms. Abnormal blood vessels can be free from accidents for life. Patients do not have any discomfort, but when they are physically and mentally overtired, their blood pressure rises, causing abnormal blood vessels to burst suddenly. Or although the blood pressure is not high, fatigue disrupts the self-regulation function of blood vessels, and blood vessels can also burst when they spasm. Stroke in middle-aged and old people is mostly caused by thrombus, which occurs suddenly after exertion. Exploding blood vessels caused by various reasons can make the whole brain surface or one cerebral hemisphere bleed, and the pressure in the brain is too high, which can crush people to death.

The doctor reminded that if you often feel intermittent headache and dizziness, you should have CT and MRI to see if there are abnormalities in blood vessels. If someone falls down due to fatigue, it is necessary to distinguish whether it is a heart problem or a brain problem before carrying out first aid, “If you touch the artery of the patient’s neck, if it still beats, it may be a stroke, because stroke is different from heart disease in that it still has breathing and heartbeat within a period of time after the onset. At this time, if you blindly use heart-saving drugs to the patient, it will cause more cerebral blood vessel bleeding. If you directly feed the drugs, it may also be swallowed into the respiratory tract by a comatose patient, causing asphyxia.”

3. Psychological barriers: migrant workers need communication

There are reasons for the mental and psychological disorders and even suicide of the overworked.

Overworked people are often conceited people who pursue perfection too much. They can’t accept the huge gap between the ideal of perfection and the cruel reality. They have to build their sense of self-worth on the evaluation of the outside world and continue to work hard to prove that they are valuable, resulting in excessive self-pressure. In their work, they can’t avoid comparing their shortcomings with the strengths of others, and naturally feel very frustrated. This kind of psychology originates from infancy. Babies fantasize that they are omnipotent. If they are adversely affected by their families in the process of growing up, and the disillusionment process is not smooth, they will have a fixed personality, resulting in their own psychological “capacity” not being expanded, and it is easy to take things too seriously.

“Conceited people bear more pressure than people with low self-esteem, because they have built a thick wall around their hearts, isolating them from communicating with others, and even the closest people do not understand their inner thoughts. This is even more serious among the migrant workers who are” drifting North “and” drifting south. ” Tong Meimei said.

On the enterprise side, factors such as lack of humanization of management, insufficient arrangement of rest time, and lack of communication among employees can trigger overworked people to commit suicide. “More activities will help improve communication and reduce overwork suicide.”
