Heart attack prevention bill

Common Questions and Answers about Heart attack prevention bill


Avatar f tn Bottomline- you do have risk factors for coronary heart disease, the biggest one being history of heart attack. You need aggressive risk factor modification including a statin.
Avatar n tn Recurrent Heart Attack or Angina Another use of aspirin is for the prevention of heart attacks in people who have suffered either a previous heart attack or who suffer from unstable angina. A regimen of aspirin for people who already had a previous heart attack reduced the risk of a second heart attack by about one-third. In patients suffering from unstable angina, the risk was reduced by 51 percent. Aspirin can prevent first heart attack and stroke in individuals with angina.
Avatar m tn So, treating enough people to prevent one heart attack costs $500,000 per year. Since about 70% of the heart attacks were not fatal, prevention of a single death from heart attack would cost even more, approximately $1,700,000. Giving the benefit of the doubt, we may allow for a similar reduction in stroke and say that "only" $250,000 is needed to protect one person from a stroke or heart attack. It is hardly surprising that Astra Zeneca's share price increased by $1.
Avatar m tn After a procedure of having 5 stents in my left coronary artery I had an episode due the fact the catheter had pierced the artery wall, causing a small bleed. It was sealed with a stent, but caused a rhythm problem to occur in recovery. I remember asking the Cardiac Doctor for a bowl because I felt nauseous and the pain from the incision was unbearable. She looked at me, then the monitor and kept shouting "I want you to cough, and keep coughing".
Avatar f tn i have had it for two days now and have a heavy feeling in my chest, also i have on/off pain just above my ribs, this sent me into a massive panic attack and had to stop myself going to accident and emergency thinking i was having a heart attack, also during this time i have frequently been to the toilet and have been very gassy and have had indigestion also, was just wondering if anyone else experiences these symptoms
Avatar m tn I wish I had known about the financial help prier to my heart attack. Had I known I would have had everything taken care of five or more years ago. I can't say I had the same symptoms as you but the symptoms I had told me it was my heart. I had the heart attack and went to one hospital. They could only stabilize me and I was transported to another for surgery.
Avatar m tn Of course there is a difference in preparation and lowering your risks to help prevent stroke or heart attack. Prevention is always the best approach, as much as possible that is.
Avatar m tn These recommendations are based in published randomized trials that showed an increased risk of sudden cardiac death after a heart attack when the EF is persistently low and especially when the patient has new heart failure symptoms. If an ICD is indicated and the patient decide not to get the device, he will be accepting this increased risk for sudden death as the ICD gives additional benefit on top of usual medications like beta blockers. Good luck.
Avatar f tn Your husband should be scheduled for an echocardiogram to determine if there was a heart attack!? If there were a heart attack, the results would be evident as there would be heart wall movement impairment. The impairment, if serious would reduce heart contractions and as a consequence a low cardiac output. The low cardiac output and if the underlying cause is not treated will eventually lead to heart failure (my experience).
Avatar m tn t think it does because the echo shows the structure of the heart, not the electrical system. It may show, however, if there is damage done as the result of the heart attack, if there is enough damage done. The EKG will show a heart attack in the section of EKG Complex called the RST Complex. Over several days in time, the complex configuration will change.
Avatar f tn I use coconut oil to fry foods along with taking c0q10 and fish oil. Good heart attack prevention!
Avatar n tn Well that s what it is like here, I had no Insurance at the time and I went into th ER thinking I was having a heart Attack, they plugged me up to all usual things and after a few hours said I was not having a heart Attack then,I should have left the Hospital but they went on to say they wanted to keep me in overnight as they werent certain of the cause, turns out I was having a reaction to 2 drugs my Doctor prescribed me,They kept me in and next day I had a stress test and a cat scan, nothing
Avatar f tn You have to learn how to trust your doctors and health professionals. You've had tests done and everything came back ok. As is very common with anxiety sufferers, we tend to let our emotions and fears override the bill of good health that our doctors pass on to us. They've had years of medical school, endless hours of practicing medicine, hundreds or thousands of patients, and the latest and greatest technology at their disposal...
Avatar m tn Acting on this now will prevent future problems with his health. A cardiologist once said when young people have a heart attack or a heart problem, it tends to open their eyes, and they change their eating habits, exercise, and end up being much healthier later in life when most of us are starting to have heart problems. Take care.....
Avatar n tn Well, prevention would be not having the heart attack in the first place. After/during a heart attack, the heart can run very low on oxygen, and tissue dies. Within this tissue are conductive fibers (think electrical wiring) that needed to maintain a normal rhythm in order for the heart to do its job.
Avatar n tn My father passed away a few months ago from a massive heart attack at the age of 57. After learning that all of his aunts and uncles had passed away from a heart attack before the age of 60, I am now wondering if I am at risk for a heart defect? He was in okay health, active, non-smoker, but did not eat well and was overweight. He hadn't seen a doctor for as long as I knew him, but I know he had high blood preassure.
Avatar n tn Just because it came back normal, I wouldn't hesitate to go see a doctor again. I've heard that sometimes people think they are having a heart attack when it is really a panic attack. Don't give up on trying to figure out what it is so then you can deal with it.

Avatar m tn (Which makes me think it is just anxiety because if I were having a heart attack or heart issues, I would think my chest would be severely hurting. I never had symptoms like this, until I was about 16 years old which was about the time that I isolated myself from my friends and everything and kind of stopped going out places. Now I am noticing if I go out places, I get these symptoms.
Avatar f tn You have a VERY common condition of a great many anxiety/panic people. It's called "heart anxiety," and it can make a living hell. You've had just about every test in the book and every one of them has come back normal. Being unable to accept there is nothing wrong with our hearts is simply another symptom of this "disorder.
1837563 tn?1339903800 At many intervals of my adult life I've thought I was having a heart attack or heart condition with similar symptoms to yours. Been to the ER on several occasions for blood work, EKG, xray etc. All normal. I've also dealt with heatlh anxiety for most of my life, convincing myself I had cancer in one form or other. After multiple ER visits, CT scans, MRI, X-ray and several specialists, I've always came back with a relative clean bill of health.
2093716 tn?1344094995 I agree with Mamabear, sometimes it's just a simple mix up with the insurance company, either way call them and check it out!
Avatar f tn My husband has had heart problems going back 15 years started with a silent heart attack. He has had 4 stents, aorta valve replace, has a ICD inplanted. He is 72 years old, and is not able to walk very far (dose good in grocery store with basket). started to retain fliuds. ect. He takes his blood pressure bill when his blood pressure in very high same with water pill. He is good with all the other meds he is on.
Avatar f tn is that so you don't get a heart attack when you see the bill?
Avatar m tn This subject has a great deal of controversy surrounding it, but I have included a link to the Bill and Melinda Gates foundations which works with HIV/AIDS research around the world. I hope you find your answers or at least some hope............ http://www.hivplusmag.
