Heart Attack & Stroke Prevention

When Seconds Count - Learning how to control your risk for Stroke and Heart Disease

 Because-Every-Heart-Matters-WEB

Every part of your body, including your heart and brain, needs oxygen to work. Oxygen is carried in the blood. Blood vessels called arteries carry oxygen-rich blood throughout the body. Both heart attacks and strokes are due to problems in the arteries. The same factors that cause heart disease can make you more likely to have a stroke.

  • Heart attack. A heart attack is caused by blockage in an artery that carries blood to the heart muscle. If blood is blocked, that part of the heart muscle is damaged or dies.

  • Stroke. If an artery supplying the brain is blocked, a stroke may result. This is called an ischemic stroke. It is caused by a piece of plaque breaking loose from an artery (such as a carotid artery in the neck) or from the heart and lodging in the brain. A stroke caused by the rupture of a weakened blood vessel is called a hemorrhagic stroke.

Both heart attack and stroke are medical emergencies that can lead to serious health problems. They can even be fatal.  So how do you know if you're suffering a stroke or cardiac event?  

Lakeland Health offers three classes designed to help you understand how the heart functions, the warning signs for heart attack and stroke and how to control your risk:

  • Because Every Heart Matters - Early Heart Attack Care
  • My Heart 101
  • Stroke 101

Each class provides you with the most current information on the signs and treatment for heart attack and stroke, and how you can actively take steps to to decrease your risk.
