Cardiovascular Continuum

The cardiovascular continuum links various risk factors, like hypertension and high cholesterol levels, with different types of heart disease that become progressively more severe throughout a person's life. By treating risk factors that occur early on in the cardiovascular continuum, like hypertension, it may be possible to prevent or slow the development of heart disease and to prolong life.
