Heart Attack Health Quiz

paper and pencil
Most people in my country have only one third of minimal medical knowledge about heart attack, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and HIV/AIDS, according to this survey. I guess that the situation in the United States, the United Kingdom or elsewhere in the world is not much better. And what about you?

This survey has brought me to the idea of launching a health quiz where you can test your basic medical knowledge. I start with heart attack, one of the leading causes of premature death:

A. What are the seven classical signs of a heart attack (myocardial infarction)?

B. What are the seven main risk factors for a heart attack?

Take a paper and a pencil and write down the answers. Then go to this page to check them.

How do you compare with others? Invite a friend to take part!
