Revitalash (Growing Eyelashes)

I will be selling Revitalash in the next few weeks,
this is a GREAT PRODUCT!

If you have thin and sparse eyelashes, or have
because of aging losing lashes, not growing,
thin, short then you need to try Revitalash
for real! You will be amazed on how it will
help regrow and replenish your eyelashes.
There is also Revitalash for eyebrows.

This was develop by a Dr. for his wife
in the beginning.

More info to come, you can email me for
more info or to buy Revitalash.

Heart Attacks - Strokes - Cardiac Arrest

Just a small bit of info on HEART ATTACKS,

Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center
of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or that
goes away and comes back. It can feel like uncomfortable
pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain.

Symptoms can include pain or discomfort in one or both
arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.

Short of breath
with or without chest discomfort.

Other Discomforts
may include breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or
lightheadedness.Some heart attacks are sudden and intense —

the "movie heart attack," where no one doubts
what's happening. But most heart attacks start
slowly, with mild pain or discomfort. Often people
affected aren't sure what's wrong and wait too long
before getting help.

Immediately call 9-1-1 or your emergency response
number so an ambulance (ideally with advanced life
support) can be sent for you. As with men, women's
most common heart attack symptom is chest pain or
discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely than
men to experience some of the other common symptoms,
particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting, and
back or jaw pain.

Learn the signs, but remember this: Even if you're not sure
it's a heart attack, have it checked out (tell a doctor about
your symptoms). Minutes matter! Fast action can save lives
— maybe your own. Don’t wait more than five minutes to
call 9-1-1 or your emergency response number.

Calling 9-1-1 is almost always the fastest way to get lifesaving
 treatment. Emergency medical services (EMS) staff can begin
 treatment when they arrive — up to an hour sooner than if
someone gets to the hospital by car. EMS staff are also trained
 to revive someone whose heart has stopped. Patients with chest
 pain who arrive by ambulance usually receive faster treatment at
the hospital, too. It is best to call EMS for rapid transport to the
emergency room.




.Immediately call 9-1-1 or your emergency response number so
an ambulance (ideally with advanced life support) can be sent for
you. Also, check the time so you'll know when the first symptoms
appeared. It's very important to take immediate action. If given
within three hours of the start of symptoms, a clot-busting drug
called tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) can reduce long-term
disability for the most common type of stroke. tPA is the only FDA-
approved medication for the treatment of stroke within three hours
of stroke symptom onset.

A TIA, or transient ischemic attack, is a "warning stroke" or
"mini-stroke" that produces stroke-like symptoms but no lasting
damage. Recognizing and treating TIAs may reduce your risk of
a major stroke. The usual TIA symptoms are the same as those
of stroke, only temporary. The short duration of these symptoms
and lack of permanent brain injury is the main difference between
TIA and stroke.

No response to tapping on shoulders
The victim does not take a normal breath when you tilt the head
up and check for at least five seconds.

If these signs of cardiac arrest are present, tell someone to
call 9-1-1 or your emergency response number and get
an AED (if one is available) and you begin CPR immediately.

If you are alone with an adult who has these signs of cardiac arrest,
call 9-1-1 and get an AED (if one is available) before you begin CPR.

Use an AED as soon as it arrives.

What Is A Pacemaker

My Dad has a pace maker, he had to have one
put in a yearand half ago during Thanksgiving holidays.
Dad had had a stroke and I took him to the hospital
and while he was there the doctors told him because
of his heart condition and the ARRHYTHMIAS
he needed to have a pace maker that it would help
with the arrhythmia he had plus with his heart condition.
Dad has had heart trouble since he was a child, but it
seems the older he gets the worse it gets. He actually
started having alot of trouble with it when he was in
the service.

Dad has had several heart attacks and some strokes,
also he's had some mini strokes. Some of the mini
strokes are referred to as TIA's, and some are referred
as a cluster of mini strokes.
My Dad's heart is not like everyone else's, by that
I mean shaped like most peoples, Dad's heart is shaped
oblonged and kinda narrow.
It sits on the side of a sink in place right in the middle
of his chest. This can not be fixed from what we've
been told.
There are a lot of other people out there that do not have any
idea what a pace maker is or what it does, so I thought I would
just put a note in and maybe this might in some small way help
with a little bit of information about a pace maker.


What Is a Pacemaker?

A pacemaker is a small device that's placed
in the chest or abdomen to help control abnormal
heart rhythms. This device uses electrical pulses
to prompt the heart to beat at a normal rate.
Pacemakers are used to treat arrhythmias
(ah-RITH-me-ahs). Arrhythmias are problems
with the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat. During an
arrhythmia, the heart can beat too fast, too slow,
or with an irregular rhythm.

A heartbeat that's too fast is called tachycardia
(TAK-ih-KAR-de-ah). A heartbeat that's too slow
is called bradycardia (bray-de-KAR-de-ah).
During an arrhythmia, the heart may not be able to
pump enough blood to the body. This may cause
symptoms such as fatigue (tiredness), shortness of
breath, or fainting. Severe arrhythmias can damage
the body's vital organs and may even cause loss of
consciousness or death.
A pacemaker can relieve some arrhythmia symptoms,
such as fatigue and fainting. A pacemaker also can help
a person who has abnormal heart rhythms resume a more
active lifestyle.

Understanding the Heart's Electrical System

Your heart has its own internal electrical system that
controls the rate and rhythm of your heartbeat.
With each heartbeat, an electrical signal spreads from
the top of your heart to the bottom. As the signal travels,
it causes the heart to contract and pump blood.

Each electrical signal normally begins in a group of cells
called the sinus node or sinoatrial (SA) node. As the
signal spreads from the top of the heart to the bottom,
 it coordinates the timing of heart cell activity.

First, the heart's two upper chambers, the atria (AY-tree-uh),
 contract. This contraction pumps blood into the heart's two
lower chambers, the ventricles (VEN-trih-kuls). The ventricles
 then contract and pump blood to the rest of the body. The
combined contraction of the atria and ventricles is a heartbeat.

For more information on the heart's electrical system and
detailed animations, go to the Diseases and Conditions
Index How the Heart Works article.


Faulty electrical signaling in the heart causes arrhythmias.
A pacemaker uses low-energy electrical pulses to
overcome this faulty electrical signaling. Pacemakers can:
*Speed up a slow heart rhythm.
*Help control an abnormal or fast heart rhythm.
*Make sure the ventricles contract normally if the atria
are quivering instead of beating with a normal rhythm
(a condition called atrial fibrillation).
*Coordinate the electrical signaling between the upper
and lower chambers of the heart.
Coordinate the electrical signaling between the ventricles.
Pacemakers that do this are called cardiac resynchronization
therapy (CRT) devices. CRT devices are used to treat
heart failure.

Prevent dangerous arrhythmias caused by a disorder called
long QT syndrome.
Pacemakers also can monitor and record your heart's
electrical activity and heart rhythm. Newer pacemakers
can monitor your blood temperature, breathing rate, and
other factors and adjust your heart rate to changes in your

Pacemakers can be temporary or permanent. Temporary
pacemakers are used to treat temporary heartbeat problems,
such as a slow heartbeat that's caused by a heart attack,
heart surgery, or an overdose of medicine.
Temporary pacemakers also are used during emergencies.
They're used until a permanent pacemaker can be implanted
or until the temporary condition goes away. If you have a
temporary pacemaker, you'll stay in a hospital as long as
the device is in place.
Permanent pacemakers are used to control long-term
heart rhythm problems. This article mainly discusses
permanent pacemakers, unless stated otherwise.

Doctors also treat arrhythmias with another device called
an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). An ICD is
similar to a pacemaker. However, besides using low-energy
electrical pulses, an ICD also can use high-energy electrical
pulses to treat certain dangerous arrhythmias.
