Heart attack

30 Nov

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Women too are exposed to heart attack, this sensitive video remember us this bad side of gender parity. The video is broadcasted by the American heart association when launching its campaign named “go red for women”, parallel to the pink campagn for breast cancer screening in last october. In the scenario the child saves his mom giving her the signs of myocardial infarction on her I phone before leaving for school. Emotion is in the air because she is a mum. Elisabeth Bank, the young female actress, is 37 years old, in real life she was recently pregnant and she is well known by many US TV viewers. Her risk of having a myocardial infarction or a coronary death in the ten following years is 2% assuming she would present the following additional characteristics:

Total cholesterdol 250 mg/dL
HDL cholesterol: 25 mg/dL
Systolic blood pressure: 170 (unmedicated)

Data are virtual and have been entered in this risk assessment tool to compute the hypothetical 2% risk.
