Warning to those who usually get up at midnight or early morning to urinate: You must take note of the “3 Half Minute Pauses”. Why is it important? It will greatly reduce the risk of sudden unexpected death. We often hear stories that a person who looks very healthy, suddenly died at night.

That is why the “3 Half Minute Pauses” is very important. ECG pattern can change because of sudden change in body position affecting blood circulation to the brain eventually causing heart failure. You are advised to practice these:
1. When waking from sleep, lie in bed for the 1st half minute;
2. Sit in bed for the next half minute;
3. Lower your legs while sitting on the edge of the bed for the last half minute. After that series of half minute pauses, you won’t likely suffer from insufficient blood circulation to your brain, reducing the possibility of sudden unexpected death.
