This week, we will review the cardiovascular and peripheral vascular systems. Heart disease is the number-one killer of adults in the United States. We will be drilling down into these systems and refreshing your various assessment skills as well as discussing health promotion activities for all ages.
Healthy People 2020 ( DHHS, 2014) goals include educating adults age 20 and older on recognizing and acting upon symptoms of heart disease. Healthier lifestyle changes starting with preventing childhood obesity and teen smoking are important first steps in reversing these trends for the next generation.
