Assessing the Risk of Cardiovascular Disease
MetadataShow full item record
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a broad term used to describe a range of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels, including aneurysms, angina, arthrosclerosis, congestive heart failure, heart attacks, and peripheral vascular disease. It has been the leading cause of death in the United States for the past 80 years and remains the most common cause of deaths worldwide. It also results in substantial health-care expenditures. Many forms of CVD can be prevented or treated with healthy lifestyle choices. Our project analyzes the many risk factors associated with CVD and predicts the risk level of developing CVD in 10 different patients.
