SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATH STATISTICS
Over 450,000 people die annually from Sudden Cardiac Death (SCA).
A young athlete dies every 3 days from SCA.
SCA is the #1 killer in the U.S.
Recent statistics of heart disease and stroke are mind-boggling.
MORE HEART STATISTICS
More than one-third (33.6%) of all U.S. deaths are related to cardiovascular diseases, including heart disease and stroke.
In 2007, of all Americans who died of cardiovascular diseases, 150,000 were younger than age 65.
Nearly 4 million people report disability from heart disease and stroke.
Nearly 68 million adults have high blood pressure, and about half do not have this condition under control.
Approximately 55,000 more women than men have a stroke each year.
A 12–13 point reduction in average systolic blood pressure over 4 years can reduce heart disease risk by 21%, stroke risk by 37%, and risk of total cardiovascular death by 25%.
Focus on the ABCS to prevent heart disease and stroke—
Aspirin therapy, Blood pressure control, Cholesterol control, and Smoking cessation. Early detection saves lives. Heart screenings, including EKG and ECHO, are the best methods of early detection of heart disease.
