My uncle is having cheast pains. I am afriad he might die.

okay im by myself with my uncle charlie, who i guess i would say he is 50 something. He has cheast pains na last time my mom had ot take him to the emergency room. he said he is having cheast pains. My mom said ot keep checking on him. before he went downstairs he wanted to see pictures of his daughter who died. i showed him, then we went downstairs. about 7 minutes ago i went down there and he was laying down there in the dark. Should I keep going down there to check on him ? i dont wanna interupt his sleep or wake him up but. I just called my mom and she said to check on him in 20-30 minutes and then if he is alright to just not worry about him for the rest of the night until she gets home in like 2 hours okay? okay. and people, BE NICE!

Psychiatrist 's  Response
you should not be worried much because as stated by you he is admitted in emergency room i.i to say in i.c.c.u,so the monitors which are observed regularly by experts will give correct picture of his health.he needs medical supervision and attendents must not start thier own supervision as they may creat confusion and disturb both medical team and the patient.

Welcome to HCM
Please dont be afraid. You can go and check his breath even without disturbing him just by observing his chest rise and check his pulse if you can.If you feel you can't make out cal the Er or a neighbour.

On my Dad s side of my family, most of the men have died from or suffered heart attacks. My great-grandad and great-nan both died from heart attacks. My great-uncle collapsed in the street and died of a heart attack as did my Dad s dad and my uncle has no memory left having had three heart attacks. Could I be next in line? I was born with a heart condition and had to have a major operation in 2003. Is it probable that I will suffer the same death as the others?
