Except you can’t show a topless woman on TV - and you can’t defibrillate a woman in a bra. So victims of heart attacks on TV are always male. Did you know that a woman having a heart attack is more likely to have back or jaw pain than chest or left arm pain? I didn’t - because I’ve never seen a woman having a heart attack. I’ve been trained in CPR and Advanced First Aid by the Red Cross over 15 times in my life, the videos and booklets always have a guy and say the same thing about clutching his chest and/or bicep.
And people laugh when I tell them women are still invisible in this world.
Things I did not know, but should.
This is a post that might save a life.
My mom worked for 25 years as an ER nurse and is convinced that a lot of women die simply because folks only know heart attack symptoms that occur in males.
Always reblog. My mom didn’t recognize her symptoms and died of a massive heart attack.
they saved her life
saw something on facebook that really pissed me off because I worked at McDonalds for three years.
I wonder what percentage of people arguing against a minimum wage hike have never worked a fucking minimum-wage job in their life is.
I DIDNT SEE IT AT FIRST
Sherlock Holmes was brought out of retirement by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle for ‘His Last Bow’ in 1917, in a bid to boost morale during World War One. The book’s patriotic closing words were referenced by Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock in the third series finale ‘His Last Vow’.
