Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) Preventing & Controlling

  1. 1. Ultrasonics DiagnosticsLLC “When it comes to ultrasonic imaging, let us come to you” (347) 420-0102 Cardiovascular Disease (CVD): Preventing and Controlling Although many cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) can be treated or prevented, an estimated 17.1 million people die of CVDs each year. A significant number of these deaths can be attributed to tobacco smoking, which increases the risk of dying from coronary heart disease and cerebrovascular disease. On the other hand, cardiac events decline 50% in people who stop smoking, with the risk of CVDs and PVDs (Peripheral Vascular Disease ) decreasing dramatically over the first two years. Cardiovascular disease is caused by disorders of the heart and blood vessels, and includes coronary heart disease (heart attacks), cerebrovascular disease (strokes), elevated blood pressure (hypertension), peripheral artery disease (PAD), rheumatic heart disease, congenital heart disease and heart failure. The major causes of cardiovascular disease are tobacco use, physical inactivity, an unhealthy diet, and excessive use of alcohol. Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, increases the risk of heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure. Uncontrolled hypertension can also cause blindness, irregularities of the heartbeat and heart failure. However, high blood pressure is preventable and treatable. Early detection and prevention are key. Heart Health: A) Engaging in physical activity for at least 30 minutes every day of the week will help to prevent heart attacks and strokes. B) Eating at least 3-5 servings of fruit and vegetables a day, and limiting salt intake to less than one teaspoona day, also helps to prevent heart attacks and strokes. C) STOP SMOKING!!! NO, NO, NO: Tobacco use, an unhealthy diet, and physical inactivity increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes. FYI: Doctors are more than knowledgeable about the risks of CVDs associated with tobacco smoking, but they are not adequately prepared to help their patients stop smoking.
