Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death & permanent disability for Americans & a considerable challenge for primary care providers. Evolving clinical guidelines & technological advancements add to the complexity of managing cardiovascular disease. According to the American heart Association. “An estimated 85.6 million people in the US are living with cardiovascular diseases, including heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure & chest pain, resulting in about 610,000 Americans dying of heart disease every year-that’s 1 in every 4 deaths. Target audience includes: Physicians, PA’s, NP’s, nurses, pre-hospital, hospital chaplains, and all others working with the cardiovascular patient population”.
