  • Atrial fibrillation, the most common type of arrhythmia, is a serious condition that causes an irregular, and often fast, heartbeat. This makes the heart pump blood less effectively, weakening the heart and potentially leading to blood clots, stroke or congestive heart failure.
  • Coronary artery disease, also known as ischemic heart disease, occurs when the heart can’t get enough blood and oxygen. This is caused by atherosclerosis a buildup of cholesterol and other material, called plaque, along the inner walls of the arteries.
  • Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of arteries as the heart pumps blood. High blood pressure (hypertension) occurs when that force is too high and begins harming the heart and blood vessels.
  • Memory Loss

    Memory loss is not an unavoidable part of aging. While everyone forgets things sometimes, it’s important to see a doctor if forgetfulness becomes persistent and severe or starts to affect everyday life. In some cases, memory loss is a sign of Alzheimer’s or other types of dementia.
  • A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain stops due to a clot, causing brain cells to stop receiving oxygen. There are several types of stroke and stroke-related conditions: ischemic stroke, hemorrhagic stroke and transient ischemic attack (TIA).
