Abstract
Heart attack and acute stroke are prevailing causes of death in the eastern European countries. The goal of this study was to determine whether encountering a heart attack or stroke influences the knowledge of these acute cardiovascular disease complications among urban Lithuanian adults. Data about cardiovascular disease risk factors, heart attack and stroke warning signs was collected by developing close-ended questions at “Vilniaus Centro Poliklinika” primary health care center in 2015. The knowledge levels were compared between control group and the following three: heart attack or stroke survivors; those who have heart attack victims among family members or close friends; those having stroke victims in their close surroundings. In total, answers from (n=408) respondents aged 25-65 years was analyzed. The main age was 44.09±11.9 and (53.2%) were women. Those whose family members and close friends suffered from stroke had better knowledge of stroke warning signs (p<0.001) and cardiovascular disease risk factors (p=0.02) whereas those who had heart attack victims among close acquaintances, were significantly better in recognizing only heart attack warning signs (p<0.001). Adults, who underwent heart attack or stroke personally, were more familiar only with cardiovascular disease risk factors (p=0.015), but knowledge level about heart attack or stroke warning signs had no difference in comparison to control group. Since heart attack and stroke survivors usually are elderly people, having limited educative facilities primary health care providers should be concerned about transferring repeated health-protecting messages to their high risk cardiovascular patients.
