Heart Disease

CPAP Supply USA, our staff and partners recognize the importance of talking about many disorders and diseases that can be evaded and/or treated to save lives. Here are some statistics, guidelines and other pertinent information we have gathered to bring awareness to Heart Disease.

 

The Numbers Don't Lie

Women: Men:
Each year 1 in 3 female deaths are caused by heart disease making it the number 1 killer among women.
  • 90% of women have 1 or more risk factors for heart disease or stroke
  • 80% of heart diseases and stroke events may be prevented by lifestyle changes and education
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men in the United States, killing 321,000 men in 2013—that’s 1 in every 4 male deaths.
  • Half of the men who die suddenly of coronary heart disease have no previous symptoms. Even if you have no symptoms, you may still be at risk for heart disease.

Several other medical conditions and lifestyle choices can also put people at a higher risk for heart disease, including:
