This week: Heart Attack: 1: U.S.A.
A third of the people who die in this country in the next twelve months will be killed by some form of heart failure or heart disease-200,000 men and women. The heart attack has become this country's biggest premature killer. More than cancer, bronchitis, and the other killers which we fear, death from heart failure is really the one we should consider now.
It's the same story in all countries like ours where the pace takes its toll on the individual. In the United States more than a million and a half Americans will suffer a heart attack in the next twelve months. Six hundred thousand of them will die one a minute around the clock. Now there is hope that this toll can be reduced. New forms of treatment, if rushed into use immediately after the first attack, can save lives. In the States they are pioneering these new methods. But in this country we're not far behind (indeed, in some respects we may even be ahead). In two programmes Man Alive looks first at the situation in America.
Probably more than fifty per cent of all women suffer from Cystitis or other urinary tract infection at some time in their lives. It is extremely common in young married women; also in pregnancy when it can affect both mother and baby. It is less common, but possibly more serious, when it occurs in men.
Tonight's programme deals with infections of the urinary tract. Basically there are two sorts, infection of the bladder and the lower part of the urinary tract, which is called Cystitis, and infection of the upper tract and the kidney, which is called Pyelonephritis and is much less usual.
The programme is introduced by the Consultant Physician who talks to a General Practitioner and a Consultant from a London hospital.
