A Deaf Ear to Your Heart

It’s been said your body speaks to you, but when it comes to men and their heart, many aren’t listening. Research shows for most men suffering sudden cardiac arrest, the condition wasn’t sudden at all. The men just ignored the early warning signs.

Sudden cardiac arrest stops the heart, and survival rates are slim. But the latest findings reveal plenty of red flags show up for many victims—up to four weeks ahead of time. These include shortness of breath, dizziness, and chest pain. And the majority of men studied had coronary artery disease but hadn’t been tested.

The solution is simple. Learn the signs of a stressed heart, and take any unusual symptoms seriously. This means get help. When it comes to what your body is saying, don’t turn a deaf ear to your heart.
