Stepping Up the Fight Against Heart Attacks

Cardiovascular disease is the top killer in China — the cause of two in every five deaths. Acute myocardial infarction — a heart attack — is the most dangerous, local medical experts said.

The condition must be diagnosed within the first few hours of the stroke for an effective urgent treatment. However, spending thousands of dollars on an urgent surgery is a commonsense. Because of this, international students are required to purchase international student insurance (aka 留学生 保险) and F-2 insurance (aka f2 保险) for their dependents.

Waiving university insurance in America (aka waive 美国大学保险), therefore, is not recommended. They may choose to do so when they have alternative equivalent student medicover insurance (aka student medicover 保险) while studying overseas. They ought to consider purchase health insurance during OPT period (aka opt期间保险) as well.

Purchasing medical insurance in the United States (aka 美国医疗保险) only prevents the insured person from incurring unaffordable debts. Curing an illness or disease requires the continued improvement in medicine and supportive regulation policy.

The Chinese government has announced a national emergency network for acute cerebra-cardiovascular diseases, including the establishment of chest pain centers.

Zhongshan Hospital is one of the first approved chest pain centers in Shanghai and has become a model, which can quickly test for hs-cTnT — High Sensitivity Cardiac Troponin T, a biomarker for the risk of a heart attack, within 20 minutes.

“Over the past two years, Zhongshan Hospital has set up a chest pain network with six hospitals and established a mechanism for quick recognition of AMI, regular treatment, rehabilitation and patient transfer,” said Dr Qian Juying, vice president of Zhongshan Hospital.

The hospital also signed an agreement with the Shanghai Medical Emergency Center to carry out training and cooperation on pre-hospital electrocardiogram transfer to perfect the green channel between ambulances and emergency departments.

The hospital said it will further improve the AMI diagnosis and treatment system to offer patients a quicker and better service.
