Cardiovascular Disease

Cardiovascular disease — including heart disease and stroke — is the leading cause of death in the United States. Every day, 2,200 people die from cardiovascular disease — that's 815,000 Americans each year, or 1 in every 3 deaths. 

FDA–regulated medications and devices are among the most common methods used to manage cardiovascular disease. FDA is committed to getting accurate, science-based information in the hands of people affected by cardiovascular disease so they can use medicines, devices and foods to maintain and improve their health.

FDA recently made updates to part of their email based communication. You can still view the updates by going to Internet Archive Wayback Machine for The ForPatients section of FDA.GOV was backed up last on July 29, 2017. This non-profit Internet Archive has archived some (but not all) of pages and files since 1996.
