Common People Miss Signs of a Heart Attack

November 22, 2011

According to the American Heart Association, 2 million people in this country die each year from cardiovascular disease. This number only understand if you put it in perspective. Of all people who die each year from injuries, old age, disease, cancer and so on, half of these people die from heart disease. This is a huge amount. Keep in mind that it is only in the United States.

Many people know about heart attacks and are aware of their destructive consequences. Most people think it will never happen to them. This is the first sign of danger. The refusal will not prevent you receive treatment in a timely manner or in some cases receive treatment at all. Many people think that they are generally healthy and exercises on the occasion. Of course, it is enough to protect you from heart attack. In contrast, the risk factors go far beyond physical exercise and overall health.

Some women believe that they are less likely to survive a heart attack. This is also true. Women account for nearly 50% of all heart attacks. In addition, some believe that because they are less than 50 years, that there is no rick of heart attack. Again, this is a false assumption. Risk factors include age, family history, high blood pressure, smoking, stress, cholesterol, obesity and a sedentary lifestyle. It’s obvious things to look at. Who in this country is experiencing stress, or skip exercise during a stressful time? Who does not eat at the casual fast food restaurant?

Classic signs and symptoms of heart attack, are very different. Classic symptoms usually begin with chest pain or feeling of pressure type. Typically, the pain radiates down the left arm or up into the left jaw. Some people get sweaty and dizzy. There are those that describe some of the difficulties with breathing. Some go on to experience nausea.

All of these “classic” signs and symptoms of a heart attack. Now that we have defined the “classic” signs, keep in mind that many people do not have all these signs during the event. Here’s the thing, if you have any of these signs or symptoms, to treat it seriously. Every time your body pain, the body tries to tell you something. The trick is to figure out when it was something serious, and when it is something soft.
