Heart Attack

On the day the Netherlands lost to France in a penalty shoot-out at Euro 1996, the death rate from heart attacks and strokes among Dutchmen rose by 50 per cent compared with an average day.

When a woman has a heart attack, the signs tend to be nausea, shoulder ache and indigestion, not the chest pain that men suffer.

One person in the United States dies of a heart attack every 60 seconds.

Asians are more likely to die from heart failure on the 4th of the month than they are any other day of the month (7.3% death rate above expected), due to increased stress from Tetraphobia (their cultural fear of the number 4). This has been termed the Baskerville effect.

Worldwide, 17.3 million people die every year from heart disease or stroke, which account for 31 per cent of all deaths.

"Stayin' Alive" and "Another One Bites The Dust" have the optimum tempo for performing CPR on someone who has just suffered a heart attack. However,.the latter song doesn't seem quite as appropriate.
