As you are informed that constipation is considered chronic if a person has rare bowel movements or difficulty in passing poop for many weeks. However, a 72-year-old man recognized as Zhu from Wenzhou, Zhejiang, in China expired from a cardiac arrest when he tried to push his poop out too hard with much pressure.
The incident occurred on 7th January when he had not had any bowel movements for three days and chose to go to the toilet one night and fainted when he sought to push hard.
The old man also had some past of coronary heart disease and high blood pressure. It is also determined that his age could’ve also been a part as he was above 70 years.
The doctors also told that when people exert too much pressure while peeing or defecating, the body’s internal pressure rises, which disrupts the nerves, causing heart rate and blood pressure to decrease.
This starts with the lack of supply of blood to the heart, which begins cardiac arrest.
If you have poop problems, rather seek medical help promptly than pushing it too hard.
