February is American Heart Month and what better time than to learn more about heart health.

The American Heart Association has an interactive cardiovascular library called “Watch, Learn and Live”. Through text, animation and graphics, viewers can learn about over 20 topics related to heart health. What’s nice about the interactive library is that plain text is used with the graphics while more detailed information is included on the left side-bar. The information is short segments and is easy to review as needed.

Topics include:

  • blood pressure
  • cholesterol
  • stent
  • heart attack
  • hemorrhagic stroke
  • cardiac catheterization
