Dr. Kazemi noted: "Sustainable health depends on changing life style and teaching children to live healthy".
Dr. Kazemi noted: "Sustainable health depends on changing life style and teaching children to live healthy". By pointing out to Health Week (April 21-April 27) and its slogan "Public Health Services Coverage, for all People and Everywhere", deputy of the university research and technology center said: "the most common causes of death in Iran (2016– 2017) were firstly cardiovascular diseases and the other causes are cancer, chronic pulmonary diseases respectively, and the forth cause is confirmed to be fatal accidents.
Dr. Toba Kazemi suggested that cardiovascular are very common in the society, and we observe such problems even among young people; then she added: "by providing correct treatment forthose people with heart diseases, in early stages, we can also prevent consequences and negative effects of the disease and this is called secondary prevention".

She announced that fortunately cardiologists are presentin all counties of South Khorasan province and then she noted that in other counties internists are present and they can easily utilize clinical examinations in diagnosis of emergency cases. Regarding the presence of these cardiologists and internist in many counties of the province, emergency treatment for heart attacks is delivered by medication administration to delay heart attack and stop the progression of heart failure.
President of research center of cardiovascular diseases in the university pointed out to the services available in local center of the province and she said: "in Birjand, the local center of the province, we perform angiography and balloon Valvuloplasty in emergency cases (balloon Valvuloplasty is performed for the patients that referbecause of acute myocardial infarction and this procedure widens the heart valve which helps the patients to get back to their normal life as soon as possible and most importantly, it prevents some negative effects of heart failure and heart enlargement)".
Dr Kazemi was pleased to say that although most cardiologists in this province work in special clinics but fortunately disadvantaged people of the society have access to these specialists too. she added: "in other cases of diagnosing heart diseases, in addition to heart attack, when patients refer to clinics, office of doctors and so on, first steps of diagnosis including echocardiography and cardiac stress test are available there and those patients that need angiography can refer to local center of the province; it is fortunate that in Birjand, we have the best condition to diagnose heart diseases". she noted that some risk factors of heart disease such as blood pressure, diabetes, being overweight, being physically inactive and so on need planning to improve the condition of the patients. she added: "fortunately, regarding the implantation of Health Reform Plan in healthcare services by Heath Ministry, in bases of health and in comprehensive health service centers, immediate diagnosis of these risk factors is performed among middle-aged and old aged groups, and those who are diagnosed as patients get necessary treatment.
Dr. Kazemi pointed to research projects in research centers of the university that focus on communicable and non-communicable diseases and continued: "by local investigation, we try to improve our understanding about these diseases and their treatment". she believes that starting a cardiac rehab program in this province for those patients who need rehabilitation after heart attack or surgery, is one of the most urgent actions to be done and she said: "open heart surgery has been performed since 2009 in Birjand and now, emergency cases are dealt throughout the day and fortunately, we have good results in these cases".
Deputy of the university research and technology center pointed to the case of stroke and she said that if the patient refer to the hospital soon (up to three hours and a half), immediate administration of medication will prevent its negative effects (complete paralysis of half of the body, inability to work for a long term and so on). Then she added: "in this medical center it is possible to work on such cases and in some counties we have neurologists and we can manage these cases". DrKazemi's advice is that we should start from ourselves and she continued: "studies show that manyof health factors are related to our life style; in other words, 50 percent of factorsdepend on people's life style, 20 percent of factors are related to genetic issues, 20 percent of factors are related to environmental ones and just 10 percent of factors arerelated to health care system".
she said that administration of health care system is done well by health ministry and universities of medical science and she continued: "the most important part is related to life style. we should be aware that one mistake, having a high-fat diet or a salty one, eating too much sugar, and so on will cause many problems for a young person such as vision problems, shortness of breath and other types of problems; or the person may have a stroke!In many cases, stroke means becoming a paralyzed person for a long time.
