									Heart Statistics for Women in USA

Heart disease is a major killer of women within the United States of
America. Changes in diet and lifestyle have left a large percentage of
the population with heart health issues that can be potentially life
threatening.

Did you know that there are nearly one and a half million heart attacks
alone in the USA each year? Of those there are nearly five hundred
thousand deaths. A heart attack occurs about every twenty seconds and a
death by heart attack nearly every minute! Sudden death is more common in
women than in men.

The National Registry of Myocardial Infarctions (New England Journal
Med., 22Jul99) reports that women have a worse outcome than men after
having a heart attack. Data indicated women under the age of 50 have
twice the mortality rate of men after having a heart attack.

Approximately fourteen million Americans are known to suffer from the
heart disease Angina. Approximately fifty percent of deaths from heart
attack occur within an hour period. There is an early mortality rate
between six and nine percent for those people who survive long enough to
reach the hospital. For instance via ambulance or other transport.
.
Heart disease is nothing new to the United States of America. The
statistics from 1983 to 1993 saw the heart attack death rate fall by
around thirty percent. These statistics do not show much of that decline
relating to women.

For some reason, studies conducted into heart attack; show that the most
common time for a heart attack is Monday morning, followed closely by
Saturday morning.

Statistics have shown that approximately thirty one percent of women know
that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the USA.

Heart disease can affect any one at any time in life. It doesn’t matter
what part of the USA or age you are, if there are any symptoms of chest
pain, please see your medical practitioner immediately.
