PT Perspective: Heart Disease in Women - Overshadowed and Understated, By: Son Trinh, DPT, Putmebacktogether.com:"It's good to be informed. As PTs, I'd add that it's our responsibility to inform ourselves then to pass on the information to patients. I've come across many women, patients, and co-workers who recognize the dangers of breast cancer and the necessity of research to cure it. Clearly, breast cancer is serious business and the stats are grim. The lifetime prevalence: 1 in 8; number of deaths per year: 40,000. But consider this. Lung cancer claims 70,000 women a year which is more than breast, ovarian and uterine cancers combined. Of those diagnosed with lung cancer, only 1 in 8 survives. The public consciousness seems misinformed on this."

An Explosive Situation: Heart Attack:"A heart attack is sudden. The causes of the heart attack are not. Years of unhealthy heart habits suddenly, unexpectedly, catch up with you. Anywhere. Anytime. A diseased heart is like a ticking timebomb. The heart attack is its explosion. Technically, a heart attack occurs when the supply of nutrient-rich blood to the heart muscle is reduced or stopped. If the blood supply is shut down for a long time, muscle cells die from a lack of oxygen. If enough cells die, the victim will also die. Often, only a small part of the heart muscle is deprived of oxygen so the victim can recover."

The Heart: An Online Exploration:"From the moment it begins beating until the moment it stops, the human heart works tirelessly. In an average lifetime, the heart beats more than two and a half billion times, without ever pausing to rest. Like a pumping machine, the heart provides the power needed for life. This life-sustaining power has, throughout time, caused an air of mystery to surround the heart. Modern technology has removed much of the mystery, but there is still an air of fascination and curiosity."

Conditions:

Myocardial Infarction: The Internet Pathology Laboratory Webpath:"Ischemic heart disease is caused by an imbalance between the myocardial blood flow and the metabolic demand of the myocardium. Reduction in coronary blood flow is related to progressive atherosclerosis with increasing occlusion of coronary arteries. Blood flow can be further decreased by superimposed events such as vasospasm, thrombosis, or circulatory changes leading to hypoperfusion. Coronary artery perfusion depends upon the pressure differential between the ostia (aortic diastolic pressure) and coronary sinus (right atrial pressure). Coronary blood flow is reduced during systole because of Venturi effects at the coronary orifices and compression of intramuscular arteries during ventricular contraction."

Open Heart Surgery: Preoperative Sensory Information:"This provides information for you and your family regarding Open-heart surgery. Not all patients are the same, this is intended to give general information related to the surgical procedure, pre-operative and postoperative care, risks and benefits and the rehabilitation process. Coronary artery bypass grafting or CABG is a surgical procedure that creates a new pathway for blood to travel around a blocked heart artery. A blood vessel, which is often called a graft, serves as the conduit through which blood passes around the blockage. This conduit may be taken from your chest wall, arm or leg."
