HEART STATS

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.
