Your Risk For Heart Attack: One Size Does Not Fit All!

Likewise, the symptoms that indicate that you’re having a heart attack often vary. It’s important to know, particularly if you’re a woman or of Southeast Asian descent, that your symptoms may vary significantly from the “classic” symptoms associated with a heart attack. This is critical to know because your life, or that of a loved one, may well depend on your being able to identify what is happening and getting immediate medical help.

In this heart disease video, Nurse Barb speaks with Dr. Catherine Collings and Dr. Jane Lombard, both of whom are cardiologists at El Camino Hospital, and to a woman who survived her heart attack. They present useful information that everyone needs to know to help prevent or survive a heart attack. Topics covered include:

  • The role of genetics
  • Risk factors for heart disease
  • Southeast Asians' early coronary disease risk
  • Nutritional hints
  • Lifestyle modification
