Understanding the Guidelines for Cardiovascular Care
The American Heart Association is an advocate for the reduction of heart disease in the United States. This video explains the health guidelines that the AHA has created for this purpose.
The AHA guidelines focus on both the prevention and treatment of heart disease. Cardiovascular experts urge Americans to find out their heart health numbers, which include blood pressure rate, cholesterol levels, and body mass index. The AHA also recommends that each person assess his individual heart disease risk. Risk factors include smoking, obesity, and a family history of cardiovascular problems. For individuals who already suffer from heart disease, taking appropriate action to prevent more severe medical problems is key.
The Heart Center at Sunrise cares for more hearts than any other hospital in Southern Nevada, with extensive cardiac services to provide the highest quality care. To learn more about your heart health numbers, call us at (702) 233-5300.
