According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), globally each year, 17.5 million people pass away due to cardiovascular diseases. In Vietnam, this disease annually kills more than 200,000 people every year, accounting for 25% of deaths in the country (data from Vietnam Cardiology Congress 2015). With symptoms of cardiovascular diseases being not so visible, those deemed high at risk are people who are over 40 years old; have high blood pressure, have high cholesterol LDL, and are obese. Recently however, more and more young people are also facing cardiovascular diseases.
Cardiovascular diseases can be dangerous, such as high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathy, arrhythmia, and heart failure. Fortunately, it is possible to avoid these conditions, if risk factors are minimized, and they can be treated successfully if symptoms are found early.
Symptoms of cardiovascular diseases are not so visible and the condition is gradually occurring in young people
Since the end of 2019, FV Hospital has collaborated with OTB, a partner in medical communication and marketing, to establish the FV Cardiology Patient Club. The club promotes a community of like-minded individuals who care about their cardiovascular health and are concerned about their high-risk factors. The club provides updates on new information, and connects and shares experiences in how best to take care of the heart. Doctors are also available for offering consultations and conveying important, relevant medical knowledge, which contributes to raising the effectiveness of treatment and minimising possible complications.
WHO CAN JOIN THE FV CARDIOLOGY PATIENT CLUB?
