Do you know how healthy your heart is? It’s worth knowing the answer since coronary heart disease is the leading underlying cause of death in Australia. Interestingly, a 2017 survey conducted by Heart Foundation found that one in three Australians are not aware of the typical signs of a heart attack. Here’s how you can tell.

Heart attacks are caused by factors accumulated over a lifetime mostly affecting people aged over 45. Nearly one in ten Australians aged 30 to 65 have been told by the doctor that they are at high risk of having a heart attack in the next five years.

Heart Foundation’s director of support and care Rachelle Foreman says half of the population wouldn’t know what to do if they suffer from a heart attack.
