Over the last ten year there has been a loss of 100,000 women in Australia. That might be a mother, daughter, Nana, daughter in-law, aunt, or your sister which is horrendous when you stop and think about how many lives are affected and grieved. Each hour of the day someone is lost from heart disease.
Most people think that the heart is located towards the left of their chest when in fact it is in the center of our chest, slightly to the left between the right and left lungs just left of the breastbone.
Every Minute counts when someone is experiencing any signs and symptoms of a heart attack and many women don't recognize these. What can be occurring could be sudden partial or complete blockage of a coronary artery that supplies the heart muscle with blood. Changes to the heart rhythm is a life-threatening situation as it is sometimes called a silent killer and once blood is withheld from an area of the heart muscle, that tissue begins to deteriorate ad can die.
I'm all about educating those who have completed a First Aid Course & those that haven't....... You can B-The one to make a difference so B-Ready!
