About Heart and Circulation

The continual pumping of the heart provides life with an underlying rhythm as blood is circulated throughout the body. While the heart seems to work tirelessly, some conditions can make its workload much heavier. Cardiac diseases like high blood pressure or atherosclerosis can make it harder to pump blood, putting strain on the heart and increasing the risk of more serious heart problems. Irregularities in the heartbeat, or mechanical difficulties with its valves, can disrupt the heart’s work and make it inefficient. Cardiac researchers seek solutions for these and other concerns, looking for ways to help your heart keep the beat.
