Heart Health "Tip of the Day"

Women and heart disease

Women are very different than men when it comes to heart disease. Not only do symptoms vary between men and women, heart disease kills more women than all types of cancer combined.

Men vs. Women

Heart disease remains the number one killer of both men and women in the U.S. Heart disease generally affects men at a younger age, while women tend to have more heart issues after menopause.

Tips plan to reduce stress

Ask yourself these questions:
1. What areas of stress are affecting me?
2. Are symptoms occurring at home or work?
3. Am I overextending my time?
4. What can I change?
If experiencing chest pain, fatigue, irregular heartbeats or shortness of breath, don’t assume its stress. See your doctor.

What is A-fib?

A-fib is the most frequent cardiac arrhythmia and the leading cause of stroke among people over 65. During A-fib, the heart’s two small upper chambers (the atria) quiver rather than beat effectively, which may form in a blood clot and cause a stroke.

Sex after heart attack 

The relative risk of triggering a heart attack during sex is not increased among patients with heart disease as compared to the general population, and is further reduced by participating in regular exercise, like cardiac rehab. Always, talk with your doctor first.

Understanding stroke

With a stroke, time is critical. Eligible stroke patients may be given the clot-dissolving drug tPA (tissue plasminogen activator), which can reduce long-term disability if given within the window of time after stroke onset.
