This definition implies that health is a complex mechanism involving more components than freedom from physical disease and pain. It is an evolving process involving social, spiritual, emotional, physical and intellectual considerations.
Black Americans who are economically advantaged do not enjoy in equal measure with whites the expected positive influence of affluence on their health. One possible explanation relates to the high stress levels that middle class AA’s experience (relative to whites). Prolonged High-effort mental coping mechanisms among African Americans who succeed in white-collar work environments contributes to hypertension and increased heart rate.
Heart disease. Race and ethnicity influence a patient's chance of receiving many specific procedures and treatments. African Americans are 13 percent less likely to undergo coronary angioplasty and one-third less likely to undergo bypass surgery than are whites. Heart failure due to hypertension is more common in Blacks (40%) than whites (7%). The major risk factors are smoking, htn, high cholesterol, and physical inactivity. AA’s have less knowledge about risk factors than do whites, even when taking age and education into consideration. The AA diet stresses the consumption of meat, esp. pork, fried foods and eggs, and is high in cholesterol and saturated fats. Physician Decisionmaking A small study of physicians' decisions about whether to refer patients for cardiac catheterization, a diagnostic procedure for heart disease, provides supportive evidence that factors other than insurance and income can influence the quality of care people get. This study, which used actors portraying similar economic backgrounds, found that black women were significantly less likely than white men to be recommended for referral, despite reporting the same symptoms.
Some risk factors for stroke—age, male sex, black race and family history of stroke, are non-modifiable. Hypertension is the most important modifiable risk factor in all populations. Other important modifiable factors include diabetes, afib, tia, alcoholism, smoking, obesity, low physical exercise, poor nutrition, hypercoagulable states, and use of illicit drugs, oral contraceptives and hormone replacement therapy.
Cancer is the 2 nd leading cause of death in the U.S. and significant burden to AA’s, who have the highest death rates. The incidence of cervical cancer in AA is double that of whites. Contributing factors: tobacco, occupations, diet, knowledge, attitudes and practices, health/medical resources, biological factors, and socioeconomic status. 55% of deaths in AA are caused by smoking-related diseases.
The prevalence of smoking among young black males doubled from 14.2 to 28.2% from 1991-1997. A smoking cessation study examined the effects of physician recommendation to quit smoking and noted that people who were told by physicians to stop smoking did so twice as often successfully as those not told by a physician.
More research is needed on the identification, prevention, treatment, and care cancer in the minority population.
Approx. 37% of all internal cancers diagnosed in AA men are prostate cancer. This translates to about 225 per 100,000 new AA cases of cancer, which is more than the combined projections for the next 5 leading cancer sites. The incidence of prostate cancer in the age group 45-49 for blacks is 12.6/100,000 compared to whites 7.4/100,000
The incidence of ESRD in AA is 4 times greater than in whites. HTN and DM are the most commonly identified causes of kidney failure, but regardless of the diagnosis, AA are at greater risk than whites of requiring dialysis or transplantation.
The number of cadaveric transplants is roughly 4 per 100 dialysis patient-years among white men, 3 per 100 dialysis years among white women and black men and 2 per 100 dialysis years among black women. The demand for organs has outpaced supply. Whites are more than 2 times as likely as blacks to be wait-listed before dialysis. Factors believe to account for some of the disparities: AA once referred do not advance through the process as quickly: some reasons are related to place of recidence, educational level, functionality on dialysis, and associated medical comorbidity.
Poverty is the most important factor and affects the ability to afford preventive and routine health services. Other barriers to health are: transportation, long waiting times, inconvenient hours of service and confusion at the clinic or hospital atmosphere and other factors. These barriers cause AA’s to revert to public medical facilities with distant appointments, contribute to the advancement of illnesses and the high use of costly ER services. Limited education and illiteracy obstruct the ability to interpret and comprehend health-related information. The persistent association between race and lack of health care utilization, even with the same socioeconomic stratum, suggests that discrimination and physician bias is still a plausible explanation.
Many white health care professionals have difficulties understanding the African American culture, beliefs, and expectations. The body language between African Americans and Whites can also be a barrier. Most providers are not educated and trained to be culturally sensitive. The cultural barriers are built into the very fabric of the U.S. health system model, which emphasizes isolating and treating different ailments through specialized practitioners, rather than a holistic approach. Beware, not all African Americans think or act or react the same way. The provider needs to interact with each patient to develop his/her holistic, culturally competent plan of care. With this approach, quality is maximized, and outcomes are more successful.
Etiology of Heart Failure in Black Patients Retrospective analyses of V-HeFT-I, V-HeFT-II, SOLVD, US Carvedilol, BEST, and MERIT-HF have reported subgroup data demonstrating that black patients have a higher incidence of HTN as a cause of LVD than do non-blacks. HF in non-black patients is more likely to be caused by CAD than by HTN. 40%-80% of HF cases in blacks are caused by HTN. 50%-80% of HF cases in whites are caused by CAD. Reference Yancy CW.
