Cardio – Pulmonary Program
More than 5 million people in the United States have some form of heart failure and nearly 550,000 new cases are diagnosed each year, according to the American Heart Association. The risk of developing heart failure increases with age, and it is estimated that one out of every 100 people over the age of 65 will be diagnosed with heart failure. Today, heart failure is the single most frequent cause of hospitalization in people over the age of 65. Heart failure accounts for anywhere from 5 to 10 percent of all hospital admissions.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a term referring to two lung diseases — chronic bronchitis and emphysema — that are characterized by obstruction to airflow, which interferes with normal breathing. COPD is the fourth leading cause of death in America, with the number of women dying from the disease surpassing the number seen in men. Smoking is the primary risk factor for COPD, causing about 80 to 90 percent of COPD deaths.
