Every day, more than 2,600 people die from cardiovascular disease. In fact, cardiovascular disease – principally heart disease and stroke – is the leading cause of death in the United States for men and women in all racial and ethnic groups.
Cardiovascular disease has no respect for age, either. It’s the leading cause of death for all Americans age 35 and older. Yet the staggering cardiovascular death rate is only part of the toll this disease takes. Heart disease and stroke account for nearly 6 million hospital admissions annually and cause disability for roughly 10 million Americans.
Consequently, AIM takes a serious, aggressive approach to cardiovascular disease. Using the most up-to-date equipment, we monitor our patients closely for signs the condition is developing.
We work with patients to overcome health-related behaviors that can increase their risk. Should cardiovascular disease strike, we’ll work closely with your heart specialists to help you recover.
With prompt treatment, good follow-up care and regular check-ups, AIM can help patients fight back against this deadly disease.
