  • One person dies every 36 seconds in the United States from cardiovascular disease.
  • About 655,000 Americans die from heart disease each year—that’s 1 in every 4 deaths.
  • Heart disease costs the United States about $219 billion each year from 2014 to 2015. This includes the cost of health care services, medicines, and lost productivity due to death.

  • At least 48 percent of all adults in the United States have some form of cardiovascular disease, according to the latest statistics provided by the American Heart Association.
  • Much of the prevalence is driven by an increase in the number of people classified as having high blood pressure, following the 2017 guidelines that redefined hypertension levels to 130/80 mm Hg.
  • Cardiovascular disease remains the number one killer of all Americans, claiming more than 840,000 lives in 2016.

  • Cardiovascular disease (CVD), listed as the underlying cause of death, accounted for 859,125
    deaths in the US in 2017.
  • Cardiovascular diseases claim more lives each year than all forms of cancer and Chronic Lower
    Respiratory Disease combined.
  • In 2017, Coronary Heart Disease was the leading cause (42.6%) of deaths attributable to
    cardiovascular disease in the US, followed by stroke (17.0%), High Blood Pressure (10.5%), Heart
    Failure (9.4%), diseases of the arteries (2.9%), and other cardiovascular diseases (17.6%)
  • CVD is the leading global cause of death. CVD accounted for approximately 17.8 million deaths in 2017. This number is expected to grow to more than 22.2 million by 2030, according to
    a 2014 study.
