At this point, two questions naturally arise: What can be done for a person whose heart is already damaged ? Are the drugs applied in these cases of any help ?
We wish to reiterate what we have stated before, namely, that no drugs actually restore health, they merely modify or suppress the symptoms of disease. This holds true with equal force to the drugs used in heart disease. While it is true that in an emergency, one may feel that there is no alternative but to resort to these drugs, it is well to bear in mind that while these drugs may provide temporary relief, they can also cause a great deal of harm, and that because of this a well-regulated program of care along the lines outlined in this encyclopedia offers the only sound approach.
The drugs most often used in heart disease are digitalis, the mercurial diuretics, and the nitrites (Amyl Nitrate and nitroglycerine).
