Why Young Women Should Worry About Heart Attacks
oh ouch that was weird. I hope I'm not havinga heart attack. haha its funny because I'm not the typicalat risk demographic, righté oh no. maybe i am. Hey everyone Julia here for DNews let me throw something shocking at you, Heartattacks are the number one killer of both men and women in the U.S. Yet young womenUNDER the age of 55 are twice as likely to die after being ized for a heart attackas men. Every year 15,000 women will die from heart disease. A new study from the Yale Schoolof Public Health published in the journal
Circulation suggests the reason might be becauseyounger women put off getting help. The researchers interviewed 30 women who hadheart attacks. They asked them why they delayed getting help. They mostly said their symptomsdidn't look like they do in the movies and they didn't want to raise a false alarm. In Hollywood, a man, usually older, gets shootingpain the left arm, intense pain in the chest and he collapses. We've all seen that before.But heart attacks in women look a little less dramatic. Women experience more mild discomfortwhich can be easily dismissed as something else. Symptoms can vary pretty widely in women.Some look suspiciously like anxiety attacks.
Shortness of breath, racing heart, sweating,feeling of impending doom. Sometimes women experience nausea or pain elsewhere besidesthe chest, like neck, shoulder, or jaw pain. So why don't we see this kind of heart attackon tvé Well. The problem in short, bras. Before anyone can use a defibrillator on awoman, the bra has to be taken off because the metal underwires could conduct electricityand cause serious burns. and you can't exactly show a topless woman on cable tv. This lack of information leads women to putoff getting treatment, which is a huge problem. The national institute of health describesa heart attack as when the flow of oxygenrich
blood to a section of heart muscle suddenlybecomes blocked and the heart can't get oxygen. If left untreated, sections of heart startto die. Health professionals strongly suggest seeking help with in an hour after the onsetof symptoms. This critical period is called the golden hour where chances of survivingare the best. So ladies, and gents. Learn the symptoms,know your risk of heart disease. If you think you're having a heart attack, call 911,right away, chew or crush an aspirin to prevent more clotting. Don't take no for an answer,don't let anyone dismiss your symptoms, and demand to see a immediately.
