Summary
According to current estimates, cardiovascular disease is responsible for more deaths each year than the next seven leading causes of death-combined. This program begins with a concise overview of how the heart and circulatory system function and why a healthy heart is so important to overall bodily health. Common heart- and circulatory system-related problems are then addressed, with an emphasis on pathology and long-term preventive and palliative measures. The major risk factors for cardiovascular disease in the U.S. are also described, distinguishing between those that are controllable and those that are not.
