According to the CDC, about 659,000 people in the United States die from heart disease each year. That’s one in every four deaths. It’s the leading cause of death for men, women, and people of most racial and ethnic groups, with one person dying every 36 seconds from cardiovascular disease.

Each year, the case count is only getting worse.

“In the United States, there’s over 6 million individuals with heart failure at the current time,” Dr. Ashkan Hayatdavoudi, the co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of Presidium Health Corporation, said. “That number is expected to increase to over 8 million by 2030.”
