Hey guys ! I know I haven’t been posting up any new in a lot time. The reason is….
I’m starting my own gift basket business with the help of Mr. Andrew Morrison CEO of smallbusinesscamp.com
The focus of his camp is to help people from ages 12-24 create their own business and how to make MONEY!! I’ve been learning so much since this camp started. We’ve been learning how to make our own donation site and how to make our own mobile app!
Tell me that doesn’t sound cool. : D
I was really excited to know that I was going to get to create a business of my own and with the help of Mr. Morrison my dreams are finally coming true.
It would mean so much if you guys contributed to my company.
And don’t worry if you do go to my donation site http://www.gofundme.com/x2at4 you will get a thank you gift in return
Thank you for reading guys and follow me on twitter @BasketsByFab and on wordpress: BasketsByFab.wordpress.com
Have a Wonderful Day
“Aren’t Cardiac Attacks and Heart Arrests the same?”
Umm, well they both are cardiovascular diseases, I’ll give you that, but they aren’t the same. Let’s see why…
A Cardiac Arrest is the sudden unexpected loss of heart function; basically when your heart completely stops beating. There is usually an electrical disturbance in the heart which may be the cause of it to unexpectedly stop. And because it stops this also stops blood from going to other parts of the body.
A Heart Attack is when blood flow to some part of the heart is blocked causing damage or death to the heart muscle. During a heart attack the heart does no stop beating it just stops pumping blood.
Here are some key words that you might did in the future:
Arrhythmia: this means that the heart has an abnormal rhythm
Ventricular fibrillation: is an extreme version of arrhythmia; V-Fib can be life-threatening.
These things are often linked to cardiac arrests:

“Cardiovascular What??” “Cardiovascular Who??” “What does this have to do with me?” Well don’t you worry your pretty little head, I’m going to get to that momentarily : )
Cardiovascular Disease is the leading cause of death in men and women in the United States; as a matter of fact one in every three deaths is due to either heart disease or a stroke, which is equal to 2,200 deaths per day…
( I bet that caught your attention).
And since I have your attention I might as well continue….
If someone has heart disease they might feel Angina
Angina: chest discomfort or pain due to poor blood flow going through the cormorant arteries.
OR they might have a Myocardial Infarction, otherwise known as a Heart Attack
Heart Attack: blood flow to some part of the heart is blocked causing damage or death to the heart muscle.
What caused the build up you might ask?
Plaque is what builds up in the arteries which leads to the blockage of blood flow. Plaque is mostly made up of cholesterol, bad cholesterol that you can get from eating unhealthy food. So the first step to prevent Myocardial Infarction is eating healthy and staying in shape.

The Silent Killer. What is it? Why is it so silent? What can you do to prevent it?
The Silent Killer is another name for hypertension, or high blood pressure. Blood pressure is the pressure exerted on the walls of the artery. The normal blood pressure is 120/80. Your blood pressure is recorded as two numbers: Systolic and diastolic.
The Systolic number is the pressure within the arteries when your heart beats; it is also the top number. The diastolic number is the pressure in the arteries between heartbeats when the heart is resting. Someone with hypertension is considered to have a blood pressure that is greater than 140/90, Hypertensive Urgency is when you have a blood pressure that is greater than 180/110 (without organ damage), and Hypertensive Emergency is when a person’s blood pressure is greater than 180/120 (with organ damage).
The reason why High Blood Pressure is also known as The Silent Killer is because some people may have no symptoms or the symptoms are so typical that they are usually ignored. Don’t ignore the signs! If you have signs of chronic headaches, nosebleeds, change in vision, and/or confusion see your physician right away.
Today we learned a lot more about the heart. Did you know that there are two types of circulation? Yep, that’s what I said. They are called the Systemic Circulation and Pulmonary Circulation; you may have guessed that the systemic circulation has to do with the whole body and the pulmonary circulation has to do with the lungs.
Systemic Circulation pumps blood to the whole body, it is the distribution network for blood, oxygen, and other important things that your body needs. Pulmonary Circulation is where de-oxygenated blood goes to the lungs to become oxygenated. The gas exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide happens in the capillaries. All of this is happening right now! Every breathe you take, all of this is happening!
*sigh* I love the human body
I would like to start with this: saying that dissecting a heart is amazing would be the understatement of all understatements. Today we watched Future Dr. Dayle dissect a cow heart and it was pretty interesting. He got in-depth with the parts of the heart and gave us a look at what a real aorta and what real atriums looked like. He is a really good teacher; he explains things at a very understandable pace and he is nice and considerate of others and their questions.
Today’s lesson was also a review of what I previously learned in biology class. Alas, I forgot so much of what I did learn but Dr. Dayle helped me in that department. I’m kind of upset that we don’t have class tomorrow. *sigh* I guess I’ve got to wait until Monday. I’m so excited : )
Today was the most interesting class so far. I find learning about the cardiovascular system to be amazing. Dr. Raj was very entertaining and informative; he was funny but he got the job and that is what I liked the most. The whole lesson was basically a review of what I learned in biology class.
As we were reviewing I realized how much I forgot and I must admit that I was a little upset at first but because of Dr. Raj’s content attitude made me forget all about it. Learning about the heart and some of the diseases that effect it was also extremely interesting. I cannot wait for tomorrow’s session
