To celebrate the upcoming American Heart month, HRMC is encouraging the community to get the facts and protect themselves from the crippling effects of a heart attack or stroke. One of every three deaths in the U.S. were from heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases, while heart disease and stroke were the No. 1 and No. 2 killers worldwide, according to American Heart Association’s 2017 Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics Update. In the U.S. the data showed:

  • cardiovascular diseases claimed 801,000 lives;
  • heart disease killed more than 360,000 people;
  • stroke killed nearly 133,000 people;
  • about 114,000 of the 790,000 people in the U.S. who had a heart attack died;
  • about 795,000 people had a stroke, the leading preventable cause of disability;

A heart attack occurs when the blood supply to part of the heart muscle (the myocardium) is severely reduced or stopped because one or more of the heart’s arteries is blocked. If the blood supply is cut off for more than a few minutes, heart muscle cells suffer permanent injury or die. This can kill or disable someone, depending on how much heart muscle is damaged.

The best protection against heart attack is to arm yourself with information about your risks, the signs and symptoms of heart disease and steps you can take to reduce your risk.
