What are heart and circulation conditions?
Heart and circulation conditions affect how we breathe and how nutrients like oxygen are delivered to different parts of our body by our blood. Heart attacks, cardiomyopathy, angina, congestive heart failure and vascular conditions can cause dangerous slowdowns or interruptions in this delivery system. In turn, these conditions can result in low energy levels and restricted physical activity.

Many impressive advancements have been made in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases in the past 30 years. New treatments have made cardiac and vascular surgery much safer for patients, leading to higher survival rates and marked improvement in symptoms.
