JACKSONVILLE, Fla., March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A heart attack strikes an American at an average of once every 30 seconds throughout the year.
Chronic conditions are a leading cause of heart attacks. Family members worry about long distance relatives who are at-risk for a sudden medical emergency.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports more than 98 million Americans currently suffer from at least one of the three following chronic conditions:
"The best way to prevent a heart attack is to make lifestyle changes through healthier eating, better fitness, and vital sign monitoring," says Ross McCabe , M.D., an Emergency Room physician.
In over 30 years of practicing medicine, he has seen thousands of people struggle to make the changes recommended by their doctor.
"I'm convinced that you can form healthy habits with some guidance. But, you need a proven road map to make a lasting change," continues Dr. McCabe.
Dr. McCabe has launched an education program called, "How to Take Control of Your Health." Each week, he publishes a new video lesson for use by doctors, nurses, and their patients.
Anyone can view the video lessons, at no cost, on the web site, www.every30seconds.com.
In addition to the training program, Dr. McCabe has created a new personal health tracking service called Every 30 Seconds™.
Every 30 Seconds™ offers new technology that accurately tests vital signs and can automatically forward abnormal test results directly to your family, friends, or doctor. You can share test results with anyone that you choose.
