1, treatment at the time of onset (1) rest immediately after the attack.

(2) drug treatment: can contain a nitrate ester preparation with a faster effect.

1 nitroglycerin 5mg, sublingual, 1?
It started to work in 2 minutes, and the effect disappeared after about half an hour.

2 isosorbide dinitrate 5?

Long-term use of 2β receptor antagonists can significantly reduce cardiovascular events and mortality.

The dose of the beta receptor antagonist should be individualized, starting with a smaller dose and increasing the dose step by step.
Commonly used drugs include: metoprolol tablets, metoprolol sustained-release tablets and bisoprolol.

Patients with severe bradycardia, convulsions atrioventricular block and acute bronchial episodes, beta receptor replacement agents.

Vascular disease and severe depression in various places are relative contraindications.
