Cardiovascular Disease Overview

Also indexed as:Heart Disease
A heart-to-heart on cardiovascular disease: Make simple changes to help you beat the odds against heart disease, a leading cause of death.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, due to the high risk of heart disease, protecting your heart and circulatory system should be a high priority for everyone. Here's a guide to many products that may support heart health: tools to help with weight-loss, blood pressure management, and more.
Blood Pressure Monitors
A home blood pressure monitor is a wonderful tool for ensuring your numbers stay in the healthy range. Use this guide to find the right monitor to fit your health needs, lifestyle, and budget.
Heart Rate Monitors
Keeping track of your heart rate is a great way to keep tabs on your heart health. Heart rate monitors vary in size and functionality, but most are easy to use and provide valuable insights.
Sleep Aids
If you have trouble sleeping, an occasional over-the-counter sleep aid may help you get the ZZZs you need.
Scales
Many people track body weight to ensure they stay in a healthy range, and for the millions of people who go on a weight-loss diet each year, a good-quality scale is an essential tool.
Pedometers
Walking is a fun and relatively easy way to get heart-healthy cardio while burning fat and calories. To maintain a healthy weight and stay active, try walking about 10,000 steps each day, and use a pedometer to help you keep track. (Check with your doctor first, especially if you are overweight or managing a health condition.)
Pain Relievers
Your body uses pain to tell you something is wrong, but in many cases, the problem is minor and may be managed at home with the help of an over-the-counter pain reliever. Like all medicines, pain relievers should be used with care. Use this quick guide to pick one that can maximize the benefits and minimize side effects.
Smoking Cessation Products
Don't go cold turkey! Take advantage of the available over-the-counter and prescription quit aids that may significantly improve your odds of kicking cigarettes for good.
Medical ID for People with Heart Conditions
A medical identification bracelet or necklace will help determine whether it’s safe for first responders to use an MRI scan on you to diagnose an injury. Also, if you have a stent, emergency responders need to know, and if you’re on a blood thinner, emergency responders are especially cautious about any potential blood loss.

    Outstanding! I am a family nurse practitioner working at an Urgent Care. These health tips are practical and spot on for everyone! Thanks also for reminding parents to check the doses of OTC pain relievers for their kiddos. Note: Under the aspirin if someone IS experiencing chest pain, after taking the aspirin they should be calling 911. thanks! AE FNP

    It’s truly very difficult in this full of activity life to listen news

    information.
