Sudden death caused by working overtime

13 Sept 2023

I don’t know since when, “struggle” has become an essential workplace tool in today’s workplace.

Recently, the sudden death of a 1998 employee of a well-known Internet company after get off work in the early morning attracted the attention of netizens. Subsequently, the company's official social platform account responded with remarks about "exchanging lives for money."

The girl who died suddenly had just graduated from college. In the eyes of her friends and classmates, she had always wanted to be as warm as the sun and warm the people around her.

The last signature signed by the girl before her death was also about work, which can't help but make people sigh.

Sudden death can actually happen to everyone

In our daily lives, tragedies of sudden death and fainting often occur.

For example, a programmer from a company in Bengaluru suddenly fell to the ground shortly after getting up to get water...

In fact, it is often just one step away from fatigue to sudden death.

According to data, the total number of people who die due to sudden cardiac death in our country every year is as high as 500,000, which means: every minute, 3 people die of heart causes within one hour of onset, and the rescue success rate is less than 1%.

Before sudden death occurs, the patient's body often sends out certain signals.

1. Chest tightness

If you have chest tightness at ordinary times and it becomes more severe and obvious after exercise, it may be related to coronary heart disease. If the chest tightness has become more and more obvious recently, and there are even symptoms of chest pain, it may lead to sudden death due to acute myocardial infarction.

2. Darkness in front of eyes

Most people who squat for too long and suddenly stand up will have symptoms of black eyes due to temporary ischemia of the myocardium and brain.

In addition to this situation, if you have symptoms of dark vision, dizziness , or even fainting under normal circumstances , it may be related to heart failure, insufficient perfusion , etc.

These reasons can easily lead to sudden death.

3. Cold hands and feet

Even if the temperature is normal and there is no other discomfort, if your hands and feet are cold, you should consider the possibility of poor blood circulation and heart failure.

4. Numbness of limbs

If blood pressure rises in a short period of time and numbness occurs in the limbs, it may be caused by poor blood circulation and excessive pressure on the body. , and organ dysfunction.

These reasons can also easily lead to sudden death in patients.

5. Flustered

Generally, people who stay up late for a long time are particularly prone to feeling flustered, and the probability of sudden death is much higher than others.

This condition is mainly caused by the influence of sympathetic nerve regulation , resulting in abnormal cardiac contraction.

Most people who die suddenly have heart diseases and bad living habits. Therefore, to prevent sudden death, it is recommended to do the following:

1. Regular work and rest

Try to reduce or avoid staying up late at ordinary times to avoid affecting the regulation of sympathetic nerves, leading to abnormal heart contraction, causing palpitation and sudden death.

Exercise moderately every day to enhance your physical fitness and myocardial vitality. However, for people with heart disease, it is recommended to avoid strenuous exercise to avoid increasing the chance of sudden death.

2. Regular physical examination

Conduct regular health check-ups to keep track of your personal health status. After a physical examination reveals a problem, do not hide the illness and seek medical treatment promptly. For patients with some chronic diseases, they should pay more attention to disease management and carry emergency medicine at all times.

Advocating struggle does not necessarily mean that you have to "exchange your life for money."

People's demand for a "good life" is not just about working hard to make money during the period of food and clothing, but also the need to obtain more value outside of work, to discover interests in life, to accompany family members, and to find meaning.

We also know that "happiness comes from struggle", but struggle is not only about passion, but also about efficiency.

Compared with extending working hours, working efficiently and happily is more worthy of exploration and promotion by enterprises.
