This morning, the news was focusing on heart attacks, specifically in women, and how heart attacks in the female demographic can be prevented. As you know, topics like this, and other health care stores are often discussed in the daily news.
If you’re a business, one important element of your marketing campaign should be reaching your audience by tying in with a recent newscast. The following blog post would be a timely one for companies that want to sell products related to heart health.
When you think of heart problems, do you think of men? Probably. That’s because heart disease prevention has been on men. But the American Heart Association tells us that:
- Heart disease is the number 1 killer of women
- Approximately 1 woman dies from heart disease every minute
- 90% of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease
The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease advocates early detection, accurate diagnosis, and proper treatment. Early detection starts with knowing your own heart and being able to have conversations with physicians. They also advocate smart exercising to avoid heart disease. This includes understanding the strain cold weather can have on the heart and how to adjust work and exercise.
Bottom line: Women need to understand their hearts and need to understand how to monitor their own hearts. How? Well, you could stop every once in awhile to take your pulse.
Or, you could wear a monitor. No, not one of those bulky boxes doctors ask people to wear. There are wearables that are not only accurate, but are also stylish. You don’t have to stop and take your pulse — the work is done for you. You can glance at your wrist and monitor your own heart rate without much more work. Knowing how your heart responds in different situations will assist you in having that conversation with your doctor.
Wondering how you can become your own heart advocate by knowing how your heart beats? Please contact us — we’d like to have that conversation with you.
