Campaign Launched To Spread Awareness against Heart Diseases among Women

women-heartIn bid to save millions of women across the globe from the menace of heart attack, a campaign is launched which will encourage women to call 911 as soon as they detect any signs or symptoms of heart attack.

Keeping in view the fact that the cardiovascular ailments are the leading causes of deaths and disabilities among women from US, the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health has come up with this unique idea of Make the Call. Don't Miss a Beat campaign.

Suzanne Haynes, the director of the campaign said that this is a very innovative and educative campaign and everyone must be a part of this noble cause as a small participation can help generating awareness against heart diseases, thereby saving millions of lives of both men and women.

Ms. Suzanne herself has a doctoral degree in epidemiology and she works as the senior science adviser in the Office on Women's Health. She warned that something as minor as a wrist pain or sweating could be an indicator of heart attack.

Dr. James Galloway, a cardiologist for the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services for Region 5, added, "If there is a trickle of blood getting through that blockage, increasing the oxygenation may help. You're in medical care already so if, God forbid, your heart goes into an unstable rhythm, they can shock you out of it”.
