Increase Awareness of Heart Disease in Women – Wear Red February 4th

Heart Disease AwarenessFebruary is American Heart Month. Almost everyone knows someone who has been affected by heart disease, as heart disease is the number one killer in America. Help increase awareness of heart disease by wearing red on Friday, February 4! Women from all over the country are banding together and pledging to wear red on this special day. Be one of them!

Symptoms of heart disease in women are very different than in men. Women are not as likely to recognize the symptoms and seek immediate treatment. Women can learn to recognize symptoms of heart attacks so they are empowered and can potentially save their own life or save the life of someone else. Some of the most common symptoms of heart attacks in women are:

• Burning sensation in the chest or upper abdomen
• Cold sweat
• Dizziness
• Discomfort such as pressure, aches and/or tightness that can come and go
• Irregular heartbeat
• Nausea
• Pain or pressure in the back or high chest
• Pain or discomfort in one or both arms
• Shortness of breath
• Weakness
• Extreme fatigue

Experts agree that women should become more assertive in their heart care. Attend one of Emory’s seminars during heart month to learn how to live heart smart.
