Running head: 1 Cardiovascular Disorders Cardiovascular disease is ranked worldwide as one of the most severe diseases. The prevalence and mortality rates for cardiovascular disease increase each year around the world. Approximately 16. 5 million people die due to cardiovascular disease worldwide annually (Hsu, 2018). Cardiovascular diseases have similar causes, processes, and therapeutic treatments. Care and treatment may need to be provided by multiple specialists to deliver the appropriate care needed (Hsu, 2018). Pathophysiology Cardiovascular disease is the inability of the heart and the blood vessels to work appropriately. The inability to work properly leads to other conditions such as heart attack, stroke, and blood clots. Hypertension is a cardiovascular disorder with consistent elevation of arterial blood pressure. Diagnosis is a sustained elevated systolic blood pressure of 140 mm Hg or higher and diastolic of 90 mm Hg or higher (Huether & McCance, 2017). Hypertension is the most common primary diagnosis in the country. It affects one in three people in the United States

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
