While women get yearly pap smears and mammos they do not often associate themselves as having risk for heart disease and stroke. Women work hard and in many cases manage the household and family affairs while holding down a fulltime job. WE ARE AT RISK. When I saw this video I guiltily acknowleged that I have cooked dinner, and thrown laundry in the washer while making business calls. I realized that I, like the woman in the video might consider delaying a call for myself to 911 for because I wouldn't want the EMT''s to think I am sloppy. (Heaven forbid!) I know this because I straighten the house before going out in case we get robbed. ( ??? ) I know.
