Every year in the United States, 1 in 4 deaths can be attributed to cardiovascular disease (CVD). Numerous medical conditions and risk factors are known to increase one’s risk of developing heart disease.
Despite advances in medical technology and procedures to treat CVD, the number one goal should be prevention. The first step in preventing CVD is educating patients on risk factors and providing appropriate tools to make appropriate lifestyle modifications. LSI’s “Risk Factors for Cardiovascular Disease” is a great tool to educate patients, students, and clinicians new to the cardiac rehab industry.
