How many loved ones have you lost to heart disease? Year after year the death toll related to heart disease is incredible and it currently claims 17.7 million lives a year. This infographic from Study Medicine Europe takes you through some extraordinary statistics about how the heart works and offers advice on what we can do to protect it throughout our lives. When the heart is working efficiently, 100,000 heartbeats shuttle 2000 gallons of oxygen-rich blood through 60,000 miles of blood vessels every single day.

Unfortunately, heart attacks and cardiac arrests can be so sudden that there is nothing we can do to save a person when they occur. For example, with cardiac arrest, a person will die within a few minutes if treatment is not received. 

The reality is that it’s the responsibility of the person to care for their heart as no one is going to do it for them. Find out how you should take care of your heart and more in the infographic. 

Love Your Heart, Stay Healthy
