National Heart Disease Awareness on February 6, 2014

Have a Heart and Help Save Lives

National Heart Disease Awareness on February 6, 2014

So has everyone noticed in the past week, everyone is wearing red on television? The TV ads news stations are showing everyone wearing red clothing. Do you know why?

In 2003, the American Heart Association realized that cardiovascular disease claimed the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year and women were totally unaware. But that was not the case as the #1 killer for women was Heart Disease.

In 2004, AHA created “Go Red for Women”- a program aimed to educate women to learn the tools to keep their heart strong and healthy.  The program educates women and also promotes research.

In the past 10 years, great strides have been made in the fight again heart disease in women.

Each year, on the first Friday in February, millions of women and men come together to wear red, take action and commit to fighting this deadly disease.

·       21% fewer women dying from heart disease

·       23% more women aware that it's their No. 1 health threat

·       Publishing of gender-specific results, established differences in symptoms and responses to medications and women-specific guidelines for prevention and treatment

 

Symptoms of a heart attack:

  • Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of your chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back.
  • Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
  • Shortness of breath, with or without chest discomfort.
  • Other signs such as breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.

As with men, the most common heart attack symptom in women is chest pain or discomfort. But it’s important to note that women are more likely to experience the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting and back or jaw pain. CALL 9-1-1……and go to the hospital.

👠The fight is far from over as still hundreds of thousands of women still die each year. It's time to stand stronger, speak louder and join in on the fight on National Wear Red Day.

 

🌂FYI: I went to Macy’s shopping today and they are giving 20% off this entire week to anyone wearing red. Whoo Hoo- no coupon needed for men and women both. I also bought a pin at Macy’s for $2 and all of the proceeds are going to American Red Cross.

 

💄Have a Heart and Help Save Lives. It's time to Go Red. Join the challenge across the nation; every year….and every day.

 

The whole country is Going Red. Local Go Red For Women events will be held across America the month of February, featuring screenings of a new “10 Years of Fighting Heart Disease in Women” video, and appearances by local celebrities and heart disease survivors. Call your local AHA office to learn more or go to Heart.org to become a volunteer.

Learn more about National Wear Red Day® and the America Goes Red Challenge or Share Your Story to help fight back against heart disease in women.

Hi Scott,

Yes we should all get check-ups and I am one to put off going to the doctors but I am trying to be better. Hopefully we are all reminded to get heart check-ups.

Hi Laura Cerrano 

These campaigns can be livesavers as it reminds people to go and see the doctor when they have been ignoring a sign. Sometimes indigestion is mistaken for a heart attack and vise versa. Robert (Vegas Bob) Swetz is so good to post important articles we write.
