Default Heart attack prevention tips for woman

Here is a summary of the American Heart Association's most recent guidelines, which now focus on reducing a woman's lifetime risk of heart disease:
  • Exercise at least 30 minutes each day. For weight loss, increase that time to 60–90 minutes each day.
  • Control your weight and blood pressure. You can do this by exercising regularly, consuming alcohol in moderation, restricting sodium, and increasing fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy products in your diet.
  • Reduce saturated fat intake. Aim for less than 7 percent of total daily calories. To determine percent of fat calories: 1) multiply the grams of saturated fat by 9 to get total calories from fat; 2) divide total calories from fat by the total calories in the serving; and 3) multiply total calories by 100 to get the percentage.
  • Increase omega-3 fatty acids. You can get these healthy fats by eating oily fish such as salmon, albacore tuna, mackerel, sardines, herring, and lake trout. Women with known heart disease may also wish to take omega-3 supplements.
  • Supplement with care. Be aware that supplements such as folate, vitamins C and E, and beta-carotene do not prevent heart disease and so should not be taken for that purpose.
  • If you smoke, quit! Look for such options as nicotine-replacement medications and smoking-cessation counseling.

Default How To Survive A Heart Attack When Alone

Dunno how true this is, but it sounds reasonable. . .better than simply panicking, I spose. . .

Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, this article seemed in order.) Without help the person whose heart stops beating properly and who begins to feel Faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating.

The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a phone and, between breaths, call for help.

Tell as many other people as possible about this, it could save their lives!
