Withings and the World Heart Federation have teamed up to help prevent cardiovascular diseases. Get informed and take action—for yourself and for those you love.
Your heart is a muscle that contracts about 2.5 billion times over an average lifetime without ever taking a day off. If your circulatory system is under too much strain, the heart muscle needs to increase its efforts. This condition is called hypertension, and an estimated 1 in 3 people have it. It is the most common cause of cardiovascular disease. The good news is—it is often preventable.
Common in people who have uncontrolled high blood pressure, this condition thickens the walls of your heart's main pumping chamber. The result is an enlarged heart that can lose the ability to pump with proper force.
People who have high blood pressure are at a higher risk for atrial fibrillation (AFib), an anomaly of the heart’s electrical activity, which is often asymptomatic. AFib may lead to stroke, heart failure and cognitive decline.Learn more
Hypertension may contribute to coronary artery disease, also called ischemic heart disease, a frequent complication in hypertensive patients. Under too much strain, the coronary arteries that supply blood to the heart can become too narrow, reducing blood flow in the heart.
This condition, in which one or more of your four heart valves doesn't work properly, is thought to be linked with elevated blood pressure.Learn more
One-third of people who have high blood pressure don’t know it.
Take deep breaths
Deep breathing for as little as 10 minutes a day can help to lower blood pressure.
When sleep matters
Each hour of reduced sleep corresponds to a 37% increase in the likelihood of hypertension.
Tracking your blood pressure at home with an approved device is recommended by the American Heart Association and European Society for Hypertension, and may be key to managing hypertension.Learn more
As many cardiovascular issues such as hypertension, atrial fibrillation or valvular heart disease have no symptoms in the early stages, knowing your risk factors and early detection are key.
Aortic stenosis, the most common primary valve disease in Europe and North America, may be latent for more than 10 years before the onset of severe symptoms.
Those with untreated atrial fibrillation have 5 times the risk of stroke. Appropriate medical treatment can lower this risk by 70 to 80%.
Screening for coronary artery disease including cholesterol, blood pressure and BMI should begin at age 20.
