Do you know, our heart beats about 2.5 billion times over an average lifetime?

Do we realize, it pushes millions of gallons of blood to every part of our body?

Heart pumps blood supplying oxygen, fuel, hormones, multiple compounds and a host of essential cells to all parts of our body. It also whisks away the waste products of metabolism. When the heart stops, essential functions fail and some almost instantly.

Given the heart's never-ending workload, it's a wonder it performs so well, for so long, for so many people. But it can also fail, brought down by a poor diet and lack of exercise, smoking, infection, unlucky genes and more. A key problem is atherosclerosis. This is the accumulation of pockets of cholesterol- rich gunk inside the arteries. These pockets, called plaque, can limit blood flow through arteries that nourish the heart the coronary arteries and other arteries throughout the body. When a plaque breaks apart, it can cause a heart attack or stroke. A healthy lifestyle, especially when started at a young age, goes a long way to preventing cardiovascular disease. Lifestyle changes and medications can nip heart-harming trends, like high blood pressure or high cholesterol, in the bud before they cause damage.

There are multiple ways by which we can diagnose the condition of our heart, identify potential problems and proactively manage its health. A variety of medications, operations and devices can help support the heart, if damage occurs.
