    "Higher" is the first single released from Creed's 1999 album, Human Clay. Vocalist Scott Stapp and singer/songwriter Steven Harang wrote the song about the power of lucid dreaming. "Higher" was Creed's major breakthrough hit which helped to place them firmly in the American mainstream music scene. It peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 on the issue dated July 22, 2000, and spent 57 weeks upon the survey, which is the longest stay for any Creed song on the Hot 100. Furthermore, it topped both the Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock tallies in the process, setting a then-record of 17 weeks for longest stay at the top of the Mainstream Rock chart.

    Currently, a woman who suffers a heart attack has a higher risk of dying than if she were male.

Ensuring that women who suffer a heart attack receive the correct treatment, without delay, is likely to lead to improved survival.
