Preliminary data for 2012 show that, in Paraná, the number of deaths from acute myocardial infarction was 38% higher in men than in women.

The index can be linked to physiological issues and living conditions and reveals that men should be more attentive to risk factors such as obesity, alcoholism, smoking, sedentary lifestyle, and other chronic conditions.

According to cardiologist of the Secretary of State for Health, Andrew Ribeiro Langowiski, this difference in mortality between men and women is more pronounced before the menopausal stage of women and almost equals thereafter.

Cardiovascular disease, also called heart disease, is the leading cause of death in the state. Besides infarction, stroke is also responsible for most of the deaths. In Paraná, only in 2012 were 4,750 deaths from heart attack and stroke by 6157.

The main problem that can lead to heart attacks and stroke is high blood pressure, chronic disease that affects nearly half of the elderly and requires constant monitoring to be controlled. It is estimated that only 10% of people who have hypertension do adequate control of the disease, which helps them to have a normal life.

According Langowiski, treatment of hypertension requires a change of habits on a day-to-day patient and it is essential that the diagnosis is early. Hypertension is easily diagnosed. The problem is getting to the patient, especially in ? men who do not have a culture of prevention and to seek health services to perform a check-up, he said.

One of the solutions to improve the diagnosis and treatment of hypertension is to strengthen primary care, ie, the follow-up work done by family health teams and primary health care.
