Cardiovascular Project: Strop, Drop and Roll
Transcript of Cardiovascular Project: Strop, Drop and Roll
When your clothes are burning in flames firemen tell you to stop drop and roll, to burn the flames out, but now there is a whole new version. Stop drop and roll is now used as an inspiration to stop eating unhealthy food and burn out unwanted fats to prevent the development to the worlds most dangerous and life threatening diseases. Coming up next learn how some basic and simple things that you could do to save your life and keep your body fit, healthy and happy. Peterson, Joel. "News Report." February, 2009. Lofthouse, Cassidee. "Heart Face" February 2009. One Precious Organ can be at risk. Calla, Hannah. "Heart Art" February, 2008. Facts from: Guarneri. Mimi. "The Heart Speaks" 2006. Do you know what the leading cause of death is in America? Well, here it is Heart Disease. Every day, 2,600 Americans die of cardiovascular disease- one person every 33 seconds. Ten times more women die from heart disease then from breast cancer. Despite, this remarkable interventional and surgical procedures, over 650,000 new heart attacks occur anually. You now know that heart disease is the leading cause of death in America, but do you know how to prevent it? We have interviewed various people in the community and here is what they have to say. Interview #1: Name: Carla Cappadoro, ARNP
Age: 46 Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner 1. Do you know what the leading cause of death in America is? If yes what is it? Answer: "The leading cause of US deaths is still heart disease, although most Americans think it is cancer." 2. How would you describe the cardiovascular system and its functions? Answer: "I would describe the cardiovascular system as a complex sytem that is responsible for a variety of functions such as oxygen, nutrient, and electrolyte transport that is comprised of multiple organs. Of course, I believe it is one of the most important systems in our bodies." 3. What things can be done to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system? Answer: "Simple things such as maintaining healthy weight, exercising 4-5 times weekly and not smoking are the most obvious. However, those who suffer with diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol need to also manage these risk factors as tightly as they can." 4. How do you maintain a healthy cardiovascular system? Answer: "I walk and bike at least 5 times weekly, I participate in local 5K fun runs. I eat a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables; along with mostly lean protein (I also have a sweet tooth)." 5. How can we improve the public awareness of heart disease and how can we prevent it? Answer: "The information is out there for the public. I believe they give up the control to others, including medication. Our public is one of instant gratification, and most are looking for a quick fix. It's not hard to have a healthy heart. Most of it is lifestyle." Mohamed, Ibrahim. "Woman Doctor." 2008.

Answer: The internet and phone apps Here is some background information about your heart. You probably know where your heart is because sometimes you can feel it beating. You will find it inside your rib cage, not quite in the center of your chest, just a little to the left of your breastbone behind the 3rd to the 7th ribs. Your heart pumps the total volume of your blood: approx. 9 pints every minute. Cardiovascular comes from two terms. "Cardio" refers to the heart and "vascular" the blood vessels. The heart lies at the center of a vary intricate network of blood vessels is called the cardiovascular system. In a continious cycle, the heart recieves oxygenated blood from the lungs and pumps it into the arteries. It then recieves deoxygenated blood returning from the body via the veins and pumps it into the lungs. Changes in our lifestyle during the 20th century, combined with the fact the we are living longer, have gone hand in hand with an increase in heart problems. Less excercise, more unhealthy food, increases in the number of people smoking, and elevated levels of stress are all key risk factors, and all those who lead an unhealthy lifestyle endanger the health of their heart. Davis, Jim. " Reporter" 2009 The most common heart problems are related to four main areas of the hearts's function: insufficient blood flow through the coronary arteries; abnormalities of the heart rhythm; a fault in one or more of the valves; or abnormal function of the cardiac muscle. Heart problems may be inherited or aquired, for instance resulting from inflammation or infection, or from enviormental factors such as cigarette smoking. Your heart has 3 main functions: 1. Delivers materials throughout your body such as oxygen and various important nutrients
2. Removes waste from your body such as carbon dioxide
3. Fights diseases and seals cuts to prevent blood loss Cardiovascular Disease: FACTS! Risk Factors: 1 out of 3 deaths is a result of Cardiovascular Disease.
About 74 million people in the US have high blood pressure
Almost 1 millon citizens in the US die from cardiovascular disease every year.
Cardiovascular disease costs the nation over $250 billion dollars a year.
In the US 6 million hospilizations each year due to cardiovascular disease. A collection of diseases that affect the heart and blood vessels. Age and Gender: -Men have a grreater risk of heart attacks. -Disease can develop at any age
Race: -African Americans: High Blood Pressure risk and Mexicans: Heart disease risk
Diet: - Excess body fat -Diet in high fat, cholesterol and sodium
Activity: - inactive life style
Smoking: - 2 to 4 time higher risk for developing cardiovascular disease. Types of Cardiovascular Disease: High Blood Pressure Heart Attack Stroke: Causes: Symptoms/ Preventions: Treatment: Causes: Symptoms & Prevention Treatment: Causes: Symptoms/Prevention: Treatment: Also called hypertension. Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries. Factors:
lack of excercise Symptoms:
Called the "Silient Killer"
Headaches, dizziness and blurred of vision Prevention:
Control your weight
Decrease fats, salt and sugar
excercise Given medication
low sodium diet
excercise program What it is:
-When blood flow to a part of the heart muscle is dramatically reduced or blocked.
- If not restored, heart muscle will die
- no warning When blood flow becomes narrowed or blocked
Not a supply of blood Symptoms:
shortness of breath
heart burn Prevention:
Eating a healthy diet
eating low fat
watching weight Medical attention
Surgery What it is:
A stroke is what happens when the blood supply is cutoff at the brain. Blood clot that breaks off and blocks one of the blood vessels Symptoms:
Weakness of the body
difficult of talking
difficult of swallowing
Watch weight Medical Attention
Therapy Participating in physical activity has many benefits. When you increase the oxygen supply to the heart, the heart grows stronger, and you don't suffer from fatigue as easily. Your heart is a muscle, just like any other muscle in your body. The more you exercise it, the stronger it gets. It needs to be trained the same way you would train your other muscles. Exercise that works and strengthens the heart is called cardiovascular activity. There are two types aerobic and anaerobic. Aerobic: Anaerobic: Includes Cardiovascular activity
Are long in duration
Require that cells use oxygen to gain energy Inculdes Non-Cardiovascular activities
Are short burst of energy
Does not require cells to use oxygen to gain energy Both: Require Energy
Types of excercise Here are some Examples: Aerobic Excercise: Pictures are by:
Dugdale, David. "Aerobic Excercise" University of Washington. March, 2011.
Woodhouse, Stan. "Aerobic Excercise" University of Queensland. 1998. How it Works: Example Aerobic Activities: You can Bike! You can Streach: You can use equipment: Or you can run! Examples of Anaerobic Activities: Benefits of Cardiovascular Activity Improved ability to control weight
Raises your good Cholesterol Reduced risk for diabeties and some cancers
Reduced risk for high blood pressure and stroke Increased Self- Confidence
Improved Ability to sleep May decreas pain from joint disease like artritis
May reduce depression
