Understanding Heart Disease

Heart diseases are the leading cause of death in the U.S. Symptoms vary and can include chest pain, fast or uneven heartbeat, swelling, and fatigue, to name just a few. Most heart disease cannot be cured, but treatment can greatly reduce risks.

Types of Heart Disease

There are many types of heart disease. Each type has its own symptoms and treatments, but all heart diseases require medical help.

Heart Attacks vs. Cardiac Arrest

Heart attacks and cardiac arrest are two different types of heart failure. A significant percentage of victims are unaware of heart problems prior to heart failure. If you experience any of the symptoms, consult your doctor.
