Heart Disease- What is it and how you can prevent it

Heart Disease- What is it and how you can prevent it 21October

Heart disease is a term that has become so ubiquitous within American culture that the severity is somewhat diminished.  Heart disease or cardiovascular disease, is a very serious issue that can have fatal results. Mayo Clinic defines heart disease as:

Heart disease describes a range of conditions that affect your heart. Diseases under the heart disease umbrella include blood vessel diseases, such as coronary artery disease; heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias); and heart defects you’re born with (congenital heart defects), among others.

Because the term covers such a large range of issues, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the common symptoms and know what to do if you are experiencing these symptoms. Early detection is key, so if you are concerned be sure to contact your provider at the Wickenburg Hospital Clinic.
