HEART HEALTH NEWS
Sudden Cardiac Arrest
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) can lead to death within just minutes of the event if the victim doesn’t receive immediate medical attention or help. SCA is often confused for a heart attack because they share a cardiac connection due to the instant onset that can strike without warning.
Your heart is the only organ you can hear and feel. It is an organ which is made from muscle.”I think about periodically is that the heart beats 100,000 times a day, every day,” Dr. Lance Sullenberger reflected.

Joy in Running
For adults, running offers unmatched health benefits. It lowers your risk of heart attack or stroke. We often don’t think of the heart as a muscle, but it is. Running increases your heart to increase blood flow, training the muscle to pump more efficiently.
Women in Medicine
Fewer women in cardiology “unfortunately creates an opinion that heart disease is not a disease that affects women; if there aren’t women in the field, it must not affect them. That is incorrect as we know,” stated Dr. Donna Phelan.
How stroke affects your brain
One of the challenges with stroke is that it can happen at any time to anyone. “When a stroke occurs, it has symptoms that vary from patient to patient. It can be anything from a speech problem to a blind spot developing on the right or left side of your field of vision, causing a car accident.” shared Dr. Alan Boulos.
