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 minute syndrome. Why is it important? 3 x 1/2 minutes will greatly reduce the number of sudden deaths at night.
Often this occurs, a person who still look healthy, has died in the night, we hear stories from people like yesterday I was chatting with him, why did he die suddenly ?
The reason is that when you wake up at night to go to the bathroom, it is often done in a rush. As soon as 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.
