One in six Australians are affected by cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease is one of Australia’s largest health problems. Despite improvements over the last few decades, it remains one of the biggest burdens on our economy.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) refers to all diseases and conditions involving the heart and blood vessels. The main types of CVD in Australia are coronary heart disease, stroke and heart failure/cardiomyopathy.
At Tuart Family Practice, we use preventative health checks, and an on site ECG to assess and manage your cardiac health.
