Cardiovascular Nursing

There are 27.076 cardiologists in the USA. The 2012/13 National Heart Failure Audit recommends specialist care input for all people with heart failure. The figures show that for those who received no specialist input, mortality stood at 14.4 per cent, whilst for those who did receive specialist input, the mortality rate was just 7.5 per cent. Heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death in the United States, killing nearly 787,000 people alone in 2011.Heart disease is the leading cause of death for people of most racial/ethnic groups in the United States, including African Americans, Hispanics and Whites. For Asian Americans or Pacific Islanders and American Indians or Alaska Natives, heart disease is second only to cancer. Coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease, killing nearly 380,000 people annually.

It is a specialty nursing field, where nurses attend individuals suffering with various problems in the cardiovascular system and heart diseases. The cardiac nurses work in many different environments, including coronary care units (CCU), cardiac catheterization, intensive care units (ICU), operating theatres, cardiac rehabilitation centers, clinical research, cardiac surgery wards, cardiovascular intensive care units (CVICU), and cardiac medical wards. Basic Life Support and Advanced Cardiac Life Support are the certifications, the associated nurses should be certified with, and they should be registered nurses. Wide varieties of patients from children to the elderly are helped in surgical or ambulatory settings.
