Treatment Guideline Chart
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) development is closely related to lifestyle characteristics and associated risk factors.
There is overwhelming scientific evidence that lifestyle modifications and reduction of risk factors can slow the development of CVD both before and after the occurrence of a CV event.
Primary CVD prevention is aimed at the healthy population and population at risk (with ≥1 CV risk factors) that has not had a CV event while secondary CVD prevention is instituted for those who have confirmed CVD or had a first index event.
