    WEDNESDAY, Feb. 10 (HealthDay News) -- Despite public awareness campaigns, almost half of all American women still don't know that heart disease is the leading cause of death in women, new research finds.

    Even more concerning, only slightly more than half of women would call for emergency help if they were having heart attack symptoms, according to the latest survey for the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women public awareness campaign.

    "We've made a lot of progress since 1997 [when the Go Red campaign first began], but we still have a long way to go," said lead researcher Dr. Lori Mosca, director of preventive cardiology at New York-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City.

    For example, she said, "Only about half of women knew what heart attack symptoms are."

    Results of the study are scheduled to be published in the March issue of Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes.

    In 1997, when the survey was first conducted, just 30 percent of women realized that heart disease was the leading cause of death in women. In 2009, that number was 54 percent. However, that number is down slightly from 2006 when 57 percent of women said that heart disease was the biggest threat to their health.

    Young women were more likely to believe that breast cancer was their biggest potential health threat. Thirty-four percent of women between the ages of 25 and 34 thought breast cancer was more of a threat than heart disease, compared to 22 percent of women over 65 who felt that way.

    Racial disparities still exist, though the racial gap in awareness is narrowing, according to the survey. Just 43 percent of black women and 44 percent of Hispanic women correctly identified heart disease as the leading killer of women. However, those numbers were significantly increased from 1997, when the rates of awareness were 15 percent and 20 percent, respectively.

    Other important findings from the new survey include:

    Eighty-five percent of women said they had seen, heard or read about heart disease during the past year.

    Only 53 percent of women said they would call 911 if they were having heart attack symptoms.

    Just over half of women said the biggest barrier to taking preventive steps against heart disease were family and care-taking responsibilities.

    Women are taking important preventive steps such as seeing their doctors and having their blood pressure checked. However, many women are relying on unproven strategies to prevent heart disease, as well. For example, 82 percent said they believed that fish oil would help them prevent heart disease, and 29 percent said aromatherapy could be helpful, according to the survey.

    "Although there may be some benefit to alternative and complementary therapies, they pale in comparison to turning off the TV and going out for a walk," said Dr. Pamela Marcovitz, medical director of the Ministrelli Women's Heart Center at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Mich. "When people exercise even moderately most days of the week, they're incredibly more likely to be healthier and live longer."

    Both Mosca and Marcovitz said that experts have to find new ways to get the message of heart disease prevention out to more people. Mosca said that having women tell their stories to other women at places like community centers could be helpful. She said it's also important to have information available in Spanish. Marcovitz said that social networking sites may also prove useful for spreading heart health messages.

    Both doctors said that if you have chest pain -- and it may not always feel like pain; it could be pressure or a squeezing sensation -- that doesn't go away after a few minutes, you need to call 911. Women also may have more unusual symptoms, such as feeling nauseo us or having jaw pain.

    "If you're having symptoms, make the phone call," advised Marcovitz. "Take your symptoms seriously. Even if it's not a heart attack, you'll still get the right cardiology work-up."

    Mosca echoed that advice. "Most women know something isn't right, but they don't want to bother anyone. We'd rather you called 911, even if it's a false alarm," she said.

    查询拜访发明,赶过40%的女不知道心脏病为第一杀手

    2月10日礼拜三(康健日动静)除了平易近众关注行为外,美国险些有一本的女性仍不贴心脏病是女性衰亡重要缘故起因

    纵然关注度已进步,但也只有少于一半的女性会在心脏病爆发时打电话紧迫求救,据美国心脏协会关于女性平易近众意识激进行为的最新呈报表现。

    "1997年起头我们就取得了很年夜的提高[在激进行为一路头的时辰],但我们另有很长的路要走,"研究小组的率领者Lori Mosca博士说道,Lori Mosca博士是纽约市纽约长老会病院的心脏病防备部的主任。

    举个例子,她说"只有约莫一半的女性知道心脏病爆发时的病状。"

    研究功效估量会在三月号的发行期刊上发布,名为:心血管发病的病因及结果。

    1997年,查询拜访初度提出时,只有30%的女性意识到心脏疾病是女性衰亡中的首因。2009年,意识到这一点的女性到达54%.然而,2006年起头这个数字有所降落,由于57%的女性说心脏疾病对她们的康健是最年夜的威胁。

    查询拜访表现,种族差异仍旧存在,虽然种族差异的意识已徐徐缩小。只有43%的黑人妇女和44%的美籍西班牙女机能精确定义心脏疾病,把心脏疾病当成是女性头号杀手。然而,这些数字从1997年之后有了较年夜增添,意识率有所差异,各为15%和20%.

    新查询拜访中另有此外一些紧张发明,包孕:

    百分八十五的女性说她们在已往曾见过,听过或是阅读过有体谅脏疾病的对象。

    只有53%的女性说她们一旦呈现心脏病病状会致电911.

    只有赶过一半的女性说对心脏疾病采纳防备法子会受到最年夜滋扰,这个滋扰来自家庭和监护责任。

    女性正在慢慢采纳紧张的掩护法子,比如看年夜夫,丈量血压。可是,良多女性也依靠未经证明有效的法子来防备心脏疾病。譬喻82%的人会说喷香料推拿很管用,查询拜访表现。

    "只管一些间接和完全的治疗也有一些下场,但这些相对付关失电视去散步来说,相形见绌。"Pamela Marcovitz博士说,她是密歇根皇家橡树Beaumont 病院, Ministrelli妇女心脏中央的医学主任,"人们行为的时辰,纵然一周年夜部分时刻都是适度行为,她们也会难以置信地看上去越发康健长寿。"

    Mosca 和Marcovitz都暗示,专家必需得找出新的要领来取得心脏疾病防备的信息。Mosca说在社区中央这样的场所,让女性讲述女性相干信息会有辅佐。她还说用西班牙语来奉告相干信息也很紧张。Marcavitz则说外交网站年夜概也能有效传播心脏康健信息。

    两位年夜夫都说假若你胸部痛楚悲伤--且它认为起来并不太像病痛,年夜概便是压力或挤压的认为--不出几分钟,你就必要致电911.女性也年夜概有一些差别以往的病状,比如有想呕吐感或是下巴痛。

    "要是你有这些病状,打电话吧,"Marcovitz提议道。"严明对待你的这些病状。纵然那不是心脏病爆发,你也仍需精确的心脏病搜检。"

    Mosca再次一再自己的提议,"年夜年夜都女性也知道发明情形不仔细是不同错误的,但她们却不想打搅别人。我们提议你急速拨打911,就算是个误会也不要马虎。"她说。
