Heart disease is a big concern, especially in America, that I feel like a lot of people should be aware of it. However, it can be prevented by leading a healthy life (even though anyone is at risk). Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States with 1 in every 4 deaths ? (About 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year followed by cancer with 591,699 deaths/year and chronic lower respiratory diseases with 147,101 deaths/year)
High blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking are key risk factors for heart disease. These factors increase your chance of a heart attack but everyone can still be affected by a heart attack at any time, even healthy athletes. However, by practicing a healthy lifestyle, you can greatly decrease your risk of a heart disease.
A lot of times symptoms appear before an attack. Heart attacks have several major warning signs and symptoms:
- Chest pain or discomfort.
- Upper body pain or discomfort in the arms, back, neck, jaw, or upper stomach.
Shortness of breath.
- Nausea, lightheadedness, or cold sweats.
Do not underestimates these symptoms and go check with a doctor immediately if you have concerns.
Also the sooner someone with a heart attack is taken care of, the higher the chance of survival. And it's a matter of seconds.
You need to reanimate the heart as quickly as possible if this happens.
Steps to perform in order of priority :
- Use an AED to reanimate the heart (if available)
- call 911 (they will reanimate the heart)
- perform CPR (this will only keep the brain oxygenated and keep the body alive but won't necessarily reanimate the heart - keep doing it until someone is here to use an AED)" #heartdisease #zoolander #heart #kiss #magnum #bluesteel #flash #cosplay #dc #thecw
