Cardiovascular Disease – Heart Health and Stroke Care
Heart disease is the number one killer in Australia and one of Australia’s biggest health problems – killing 1 Australian every 12 minutes. The number of people living with cardiovascular disease is increasing due to factors such as an ageing population and improved treatments that have resulted in extending the lifespan of people living with related diseases.
According to the Australian Department of Health, cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a collective term for diseases of the heart and blood vessels. The term commonly includes diseases such as coronary heart disease, heart failure, cardiomyopathy, congenital heart disease, peripheral vascular disease and stroke. Many of these conditions can be life-threatening
We offer a range of products that are designed to encourage heart health or support the lifestyle changes caused by heart attack or stroke. For more information, visit our Healthcare Library or download an information booklet such as After a Stroke.
