While the patient is in the hospital a brief sex history should be taken. In a recent survey of 45 patients, only two reported that this had been done. The main reason for doing this is that patients have said that sexuality is one of their major concerns after a heart attack.
There are a very few absolute contraindications to resuming sexual activity. It has been demonstrated frequently to the patient that it is the physician's lack of knowledge or fears that inhibits their sexual behavior. An example is Mr. H., a 45 year old man, who was admitted to a psychiatric unit for severe depression.
Approximately once every generation a prominent American male dies of a heart attack, allegedly in the arms of a younger woman who is not his wife.

It is important to understand the individual's sense of self esteem and relationship to the world in order to understand what role the disability will play in that person's own concerns how the disability will ultimately affect self esteem.
Any lessening, or perceived lessening, of an individual's ability to contribute to society can be illuminated by assessing the individual's response to the disability. Self esteem is always most vulnerable during illness, disease, or injury.
