Know your heart and body: how to detect heart attack


What happens when you have a heart attack? Some people having heart attacks or strokes don’t even know what’s going on and by that time, it may be too late. I always pictured a heart attack being so obvious that you would know what was happening. There would be an obvious huge emergency and you would convulse or fall over and perhaps start shaking and your left arm would have such sharp pain you would scream out, “I’m having a heart attack! Call 911!” before collapsing and being finally saved by the ambulance.

Since I am certified in CPR/AED, I know it doesn’t always happen like that. Heart attacks may not look so obvious. Strokes may not look so obvious.

I think this is an important video to watch for people, especially women in the workforce, who encounter a lot of stress on a daily basis. Single mothers, newly married women, teenagers who can’t cope, working men and everyone should watch this video because it’s important to take care of your health. You have loved ones and we care about what happens to you:

Yes, its a spoof, but the message is real. Take care of yourselves. Be healthy and please slow down.
