Signs of heart attacks, Credit to CDC

I stared at my paper work in my hand, I opened it, there is in the first page: Cardiovascular disease is any disease that involves the heart and blood vessels and the most causing of death and disability effects in the US.

This disease kills about 630,000 people every year in only the United State, and there are 28.4 million of adults are identified having heart disease (Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 2018). Many action plans and strategies based on etiology and risk factors to prevent these diseases. The researchers are also going on to reveal the ways that could protect and prevent the heart from any injuries and damages that lead to cardiovascular diseases.

Cardiovascular disease is not only attack and cause death in the US also the world's number one killer. This disease kills over than 17 million people every year, number one cause death in this planet (World Health Organization). Every other second, this disease takes human life; every time we take breath.

When someone stops breathing, it is may be caused by cardiovascular disease. It is a kind of an alarm that everybody needs to care about. Knowing their risk factors will be helpful for prevention. While some people have no symptoms about heart disease that lead to the “silent killer” but some signs can be recognized so that the fatality could be reduced.

Five (5) major symptoms of heart attack that should be recognized, and if somebody notice these symptoms or might be she/he saw someone else has these symptoms, call 911 immediately (please see Figure on the top of this article)

CDC works with public health to improve cardiovascular health through their strategies and policies such as healthy lifestyles and healthy environments and communities, and also Million Hearts® 2022 https://millionhearts.hhs.gov/ that aims in preventing 1 million heart attacks and strokes that will save one million lives in 5 years.
