Cardiovascular disease is the #1 killer of both men and women in the United States. Today we will learn about the cardiovascular system, what goes wrong with it and why. How it could lead to a heart attack or stroke. And most importantly how to treat it.
Dr. William Bachinsky is a Cardiologist with PinnacleHealth and he will educate and inform us and also talk about the treatments and research going on at the CardioVascular Institute.
We will also talk about P.A.D. which is Peripheral Arterial Disease which affects areas of the body away from the heart. How does one know if they have PAD, who is at risk, why diagnosing it is so important and ways to treat it.
