Heart Attack Survivors Still NOT Pro-Active

Still far too many Heart Attack survivors are not paying attention to their bodies. Too many are still not aware of the risk they are still living under. Far too many people think the Hospitals and Doctors are in charge of their Patients health. Doctors and Hospitals only can help and offer assistance and education. It will always be the Patient who is in charge of Patient health.

“Forty-six per cent of patients had “low knowledge levels” and 43 per cent thought they were at no higher risk of having another heart attack than other people their age, Professor Sharon McKinley from University of Technology Sydney (UTS) Nursing, Midwifery and Health (NM&H) and Professor Kathleen Dracup, Dean of the School of Nursing at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) reported to the American Heart Association.”
