While Heart Health Month is still a couple of weeks away, it’s never too early to get updates concerning your own heart health. First to report is a study recently published in the Journal of the American Heart Association that confirms what many have suspected: female heart attack victims are often suboptimally treated as compared to men, and therefore are more likely to die when stricken with the most serious type of heart attack. Read more about this study Here and review the signs of heart attack that women typically experience Here. And for both men and women, there is now a growing realization that another cause of heart attacks can be lipoprotein (a), which, unlike HDL and LDL cholesterol, is not very responsive to diet, exercise or statin use. Check out the recent New York Times article on this newly recognized threat Here. Finally, new advanced technology, currently in use in Europe and hopefully on its way to the US, can assist emergency call operators in determining whether a medical emergency involves a heart attack, thereby increasing the likelihood of positive intervention in the critical moments while the ambulance is on its way.
