Slide 1 - Welcome
Slide 2 - The Heart Truth®: A National Campaign Helping women, especially women ages 40 to 60, understand their risk of heart disease and take action to protect their heart health Sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Supported by national community, government, nonprofit, media, and corporate partners committed to women’s health
Slide 3 - The Red Dress® The national symbol for women and heart disease awareness.
Slide 4 - Today’s Session Will Cover Why women need to know about heart disease What heart disease is Risk factors Talking to your doctor Taking action to protect your heart health Heart attack warning signs and survival Getting on the road to heart health Resources
Slide 5 - The Heart Truth® Heart disease is the #1 killer of American women Heart disease kills more women than all forms of cancer combined Heart disease can permanently damage your heart—and your life If heart disease is not treated, serious complications can develop
Slide 6 - The Heart Truth® Most women do not know that heart disease is their own greatest health risk Heart disease is largely preventable Women can take action to protect their hearts Heart disease is a “now” problem “Later” may be too late
Slide 7 - What Is Heart Disease? There are many forms of heart disease Coronary artery disease, or coronary heart disease, is most common Heart disease develops over years and progresses when the heart doesn’t get enough nutrient-rich blood
Slide 8 - A disease in which plaque builds up inside your arteries, limiting the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your organs Atherosclerosis
Slide 9 - Occurs when blood flow to a section of heart muscle becomes blocked, most often, the result of coronary artery disease Heart Attack
Slide 10 - No Quick Fix Procedures like bypass surgery can reopen a blocked artery But procedures do not “fix” a damaged heart The condition worsens if not treated—leads to disability or death It’s critical to realize that there’s no quick fix for heart disease
Slide 11 - Good News Heart disease can be prevented or controlled Prevention includes lifestyle changes and sometimes medication, if prescribed by a doctor
Slide 12 - Why Me? Why Now? Young women need to take steps to protect their heart health—since heart disease develops gradually and can start at a young age. Risk rises in women ages 40 to 60 Estrogen levels drop during menopause Many women develop one or more risk factors for heart disease during these years Older women also need to take action against their risks—it is never too late for women to protect their heart health
Slide 13 - Risk Factors You Can Control Smoking High blood pressure High blood cholesterol and high triglycerides Overweight/obesity Physical inactivity Diabetes and prediabetes Metabolic syndrome
Slide 14 - Risk Factors You Cannot Control Family history of early heart disease Age (55 and older for women) History of preeclampsia during pregnancy
Slide 15 - Other Risk Factors Sleep apnea Stress or depression Too much alcohol Birth control pills (particularly for women who are over age 35 and smoke) Anemia Unhealthy diet
Slide 16 - Heart Disease Risk Factors The Multiplier Effect 1 risk factor doubles your risk 2 risk factors quadruple your risk 3 or more risk factors can increase your risk more than tenfold By doing just 4 things – eating right, being physically active, not smoking, and keeping a healthy weight – you can lower your risk of heart disease by as much as 82 percent
Slide 17 - Have a Heart-to-Heart Women should talk to their health care provider about their risk for heart disease Prepare a list of questions before a visit Write down what the health care provider says Tell the health care provider about lifestyle behaviors,such as smoking or being physically inactive
Slide 18 - Key Tests for Heart Disease Risk Blood pressure Blood cholesterol (total: HDL, LDL, triglycerides) Fasting plasma glucose (diabetes test) Body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference Electrocardiogram Stress test
Slide 19 - Why Women Don’t Take Action Against Heart Disease They think it’s just a man’s disease They don’t make their health a top priority They think they’re not old enough to be at risk They feel too busy to make changes in their lives They’re already feeling stressed They’re tired
Slide 20 - An Urgent Wake-up Call You are a top priority Take care of yourself so that you can be there for your loved ones Healthy lifestyle changes don’t take up much time Incorporate lifestyle changes into the life you’ve already built for yourself and your family
Slide 21 - You Can Lower Heart Disease Risk Begin today—make changes one step at a time Don’t smoke—if you are a smoker, ask your health care provider for help in quitting Be physically active—2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week Add strength training—2 to 3 times a week
Slide 22 - You Can Lower Heart Disease Risk Follow a healthy eating plan Low in saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol and moderate in total fat Limit salt and sodium Limit alcoholic beverages to no more than one a day Choose a variety of whole grains, fruits, and vegetables daily Choose fish, poultry, and lean cuts of meat Use nonfat or low-fat milk, cheeses, and yogurt Maintain a healthy weight
Slide 23 - You Can Lower Heart Disease Risk Manage diabetes, high blood pressure, and high blood cholesterol through living a healthy lifestyle Take medication, if prescribed
Slide 24 - Surviving a Heart Attack If you have any heart attack symptoms or think you might be having a heart attack, call 9-1-1 immediately for emergency medical care

Slide 26 - To Survive a Heart Attack—Minutes Matter! Learn the warning signs Call 9-1-1 immediately—fast action saves lives Emergency medical personnel will begin treatment at once Don’t drive yourself to the hospital Uncertainty is normal—don’t be embarrassed by a false alarm Plan ahead by making a heart attack plan with your health care provider
Slide 27 - Prevention Begins with You Take one step at a time Replace unhealthy habits with healthier ones Eat for a healthy heart Start walking—try 10 minutes and add time gradually to reach 2 hours and 30 minutes each week
Slide 28 - How to Keep Going View changes as a new lifestyle, not quick fixes Set realistic goals Buddy up Don’t worry about slipping up—get back on track Reward your successes Be your own advocate—ask questions and seek information
