my granny has been operated for CABG IN 2007 at the age of 75. at present she is having shortness of breath, with uncontrolled hypertension. she is on tb.clopivas 75mg, tb. catdace 2.5mg, tb. betaloc 50 BD, tb zivast 10mg. her BP is consistantly high as 190/110mmhg.what should i do?
First of all her hypertension is very high which requires treatment. Her shortness of breath might be due to congestive heart failure. She needs to be investigated (blood tests, chest xray, echocardiogram) for it and treated if positive for heart failure. Suggest seeing a cardiologist for both the hypertension and the shortness of breath.
