(NAPSI)— "One day, my dad picked up the phone and I heard him breathing really hard on the other end," said Mary. "I asked him what was wrong and my dad said he was just out of breath these days. I knew something wasn't right." When her father, 80-year-old Conrad, a typically vibrant and active person, began to experience a marked decrease in energy, he didn't think anything of it until Mary pointed out his shortness of breath. Conrad thought his symptoms were the normal signs of aging, but he soon discovered they were actually caused by a problem with one of the valves in his heart.

(BPT) - Every year, thousands of Americans survive a heart attack, also known as a myocardial infarction (MI), return home from the hospital and continue on their patient journey. However, according to AHA data, more than one in four women and nearly one in five men died within a year of having a heart attack.* The risk factors for death after an MI may include a patient’s age, medical history, multiple medical conditions, severity of the heart attack, lifestyle behaviors, and adherence to treatment. Heart attack patients may be able to impact their health by managing the risk factors which are under their control, such as following their doctor’s instructions around making lifestyle adjustments and taking their medications as prescribed. Caregivers can be a valuable source of help for their loved ones during this difficult time.

Dear Readers: A few weeks ago, newspaper
headlines called aspirin therapy into question. Currently, almost
one-third of older Americans take a baby aspirin every day to help
prevent heart attacks. And a new study, the headlines shouted,
shows that while aspirin therapy does indeed help prevent heart
attacks, it also creates other problems. For every heart attack
that aspirin therapy prevents, the London study says, it causes two
