Heart is crucial to the working of entire body and proper care of heart ensures a healthier and a longer life. Blood is circulated to various body parts when the heart pumps out the blood. The blood is transported by blood vessels that include the aorta, the arteries and the capillaries. The veins bring the blood back from the different cells of body to the heart and the process repeats.
It is therefore evident that the proper functioning of heart plays a crucial role in balancing the other primary as well as secondary functions of body. A routine screening of a person’s heart is advised by every physician because it is necessary to keep track of how the heart works, even if a person does not have a heart condition. A doctor should conduct screening that should detect the troubles, if any, at an early stage so that treatments can prevent greater complications from arriving.
There are a number of conditions that should be checked regularly, such as blood pressure, blood glucose, heart rate, cholesterol, and body weight. These should be kept within their normal ranges, exceeding or going below which would indicate an abnormality. Measures should then be taken to bring them back to their normal range as they cumulatively affect working of a person’s heart.
There have been recorded several deaths in the USA caused by heart diseases and the most common among them is the coronary heart disease. So, visit your doctor and lead a hale and ‘hearty’ life!
