BENNIGAN’S WALL OF HEROES
Because every second counts at the onset of a heart attack, one health and wellness company is urging those at risk to “Grab Your Keys, Save Your Life”…and that doesn’t mean driving yourself to the hospital.
According to the American Heart Association, the first thing you should do in case of a heart attack is call 911, then chew and swallow aspirin. And those life-saving tablets will always be handy if you keep them on your key ring.
“Grab Your Keys, Save Your Life” is the slogan at the heart of Advent Consumer Healthcare’s new consumer awareness initiative. The company is supporting the effort with a public relations campaign and a free At Heart medical emergency wallet card, which will be sent to visitors to www.At-Heart.com who sign up for the monthly newsletter.
Taking aspirin right away can increase your odds of survival, and even mitigate the damaging effects of cardiac arrest. According to an FDA-reviewed clinical study of 16,000 heart patients, chewing an aspirin during a heart attack and continuing an aspirin regimen for 30 days after the episode will reduce the chance of death by up to 23 percent.
About a million heart attacks occur annually, and about half of the victims do not survive. Most heart attacks occur away from home, and most resulting deaths occur before the patient gets to the hospital.
Around 85 million people have some form of cardiovascular disease, and many of these people don’t recognize that they’re at risk, despite the fact that symptoms may appear up to a month in advance of an attack, especially for women. These symptoms include unusual fatigue, sleep disturbance, shortness of breath, indigestion, and anxiety.
Advent Consumer Healthcare offers innovative consumer products in the asthma and cardiovascular healthcare segments. Its goal is to enable physicians and healthcare providers to increase a patient’s overall awareness, involvement and compliance to complement treatment goals.
