Common Questions and Answers about Statistics of heart attack in malaysia


Avatar n tn Since i don't know much about "high risk countries" like Malaysia, Africa and etc. I found a statistic about my country which is in Europe and its population is 7 million people, about 1000 people are infected with HIV. Is that considered a high risk country or low risk like normal countries? Also says more than half of those are homosexual, and i am a heterosexual? ..A few opinions would be great.
Avatar n tn 1.) My doc says that in the absence of any structural and/or pathological heart problems, I have a greater chance of being eaten by a shark ( exact quote) than dying from a cardiac arrythmia? Despite the humor, is this a justifiable assertion? 2) He also said that sudden death due to cardiac arrythmia in otherwise healthy people (ie- spontaneous VF or heart block) is not something the average person should be wooried about. Do statistics support this?

378425 tn?1305628294 I am really worried and tired no sleep last night, My mum was life flighted out she has had a heart attack...My emotions of late have been so much of a roller coaster ride. I came on here to write and I am just so tired I cannot seem to concentrate.
17567 tn?1276202029 So, awhile back I started getting left arm pain, which is generally a wake up sound for a heart attack? Rather than ignore it and hope it goes away I actually did something about it... and went to a cardiologist. After a few tests he tells me my heart is fine but by cholesterol is very high (260) and puts me on lipitor. Cardiologists are very big on driving blood pressure and cholesterol down towards zero needless to say.
1382889 tn?1505071193 I was thinking of statistics a day or two ago when I realized that I am in the minority of MS patients in so many ways. First MS apparently effects only about 400,000 people here in the US. Not a huge population. My Dr Cocky say that it is probably accurate even though people think it is underreported. Why? B/c he says, it is also wrongly dx'd. He said he has undx's several people himself. I didn't ask him what they ended up having but I thought that was interesting.
Avatar m tn HI The good news is there is no damage to your heart muscle, which means the things you read on the internet do not apply to you. Those statistics normally relate to people who have dead heart muscle from a heart attack. Your latest echo proves your muscle is fine. You seem surprised that this has happened at your age. It is becoming more common now. When I was 46 I had my first blockage, but others were seen during the angiogram which had been there for many years.
Avatar f tn I think my husband had a mild heart attack early this morning (4 a.m.?). He had all the symptoms as I looked them up. He refused me to call 911 saying he thought he was ok. By 5:30 he felt well enough to rest, and sleep until 7. At 7 he said his chest was still hurting, but it was not a heart attack. He got dressed and left for work, saying he had a busy day and could not call in sick. I am freaking out b/c everything I read says you need treatment within 24 hours.

Avatar f tn Women must be assertive (aggressive) with the doctors, when it comes to heart disease/symptoms. Statistics show that ~70% of men who enter ERs have heart conditions versus ~45% of women, I have read. Doctors tend to live by statistics. Some men and women leave the ER only to go home and have a heart attack. More women die of heart disease than many other conditions, such as breast cancer, combined.
Avatar n tn Of course, not every heart attack is fatal. The total number of heart attacks in the USA in a year is about 1.5 million. That works out to about 4,000 heart attacks a day. In the USA, 27.8% of men are smokers and 23.3% of women are smokers. Smoking greatly increases the risk of a heart attack. I hope this has been useful. A site on the Internet that contains lots of these statistics is the American Heart Association site at Good luck with your school project.

967168 tn?1477584489 maybe maybe not? I know how quirky EKG/ECG machines are so I'm really hoping this time it's a false reading. My Primary found a new murmur and I've been so sick for about 5-6 months; not feeling right, more winded than normal, major headaches, different types of chest pain than before and ALOT more fainting spells even with my ICD.
Avatar m tn In 65% of men and 47% of women symptons of cardiovascular disease is heart attack or sudden death. Most artery flow disrupting events occur at locations with less than 50% of lumen narrowing. Typical heart attack occurs at locations with about 20% of stenosis. Cardiac stress testing generally only detects lumen narrowing of ~75% or greater - some say nuclear stress tests go as low as ~50%." a.
Avatar m tn last week I went to the emergency room with chest pains, they found high heart enzymes in my blood and a clean EKG. they admitted me into the icu unit and watched me for 2 days then put me on the floor for another day. the doc told me I had a mild heart attack and gave me meds and sent me home. he told me to resume activity as tolerated. I went to work that Monday and Tuesday and had the pressure again and my heart rate was irregular, so I went too a bigger city to the er.
Avatar n tn There are no statistics for heart attack during pregnancy but I would think you are at a very low risk of having a heart attack (even if the first even was a heart attack) during pregnancy. There is no known increased risk of peripartum cardiomyopathy in individuals with prior heart attacks. Your OB should be aware of your history and may wish to check an echocardiogram during pregnancy.
Avatar m tn My doctor decided today to try me on Glyburide only. Personally I am just fine with that as I have tried Metformin alone with diet and exercise and had high readings. She said that if my number go up she will put me on insulin. I also have to go on Blood Pressure Medication...will pick it up tomorrow and start that. And given my family history of Thyroid disease she did bloodwork today to check my levels. Baby looked great today...getting bigger and has a strong heartbeat.

Avatar m tn doctor has recommended for ancheplasty. Is it safe to do that? is there any chance for heart attack in future? please advice me?
Avatar f tn I thought they would make it, somehow beating all the odds and statistics the researchers throw out at us about everything from hair dye to how many actually manage to beat the big "A". addiction. They were doomed it seems, from the start, and me, really wanting to believe in them and hold fast to the picture of them beating it.
Avatar f tn Not a question even a doctor can answer from information over the web... but there must be some statistics on the type of heart attack experienced. I'd keep my fingers crossed (pray if that works for you) and discuss all questions with the attending doctor(s).

Avatar f tn Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who has pledged to repeal Obamacare, says that people without health insurance don't have to worry about dying as a result. "We don't have people that become ill, who die in their apartment because they don't have insurance," Romney said in an interview with the Columbus Dispatch's editorial board on Wednesday.
