Summary of "Who you are and where you live can determine how long you live: What nurses need to know about cardiovascular disease among low- income urban-dwelling minority communities."

Urban populations across the globe face unique health challenges in relationship to gender, race, geographical location and socioeconomic status. The global burden of cardiovascular disease is growing problem accounting for 17.3 million deaths in 2013 and projected to increase to 23.6 million by 2030 (American Heart Association, 2017; World Health Organization, 2018). Like many other countries, in the United States, cardiovascular disease is endemic, remaining the greatest cause of hospitalization and mortality; attributing to more than 45% of deaths among American adults (American Heart Association, 2017). The American Heart Association (2017) reports more than 92.1 million American adults living with some form of cardiovascular disease such as hypertension, peripheral vascular disease, or heart failure (American Heart Association, 2017).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Invertebrate organisms that live on or in another organism (the host), and benefit at the expense of the other. Traditionally excluded from definition of parasites are pathogenic BACTERIA; FUNGI; VIRUSES; and PLANTS; though they may live parasitically.

Live vaccines prepared from microorganisms without their virulence altered. Examples include smallpox (vaccinia) and adenovirus vaccines.

A major group of polyphyletic organisms of extremely varied morphology and physiology, mostly photosynthetic, but distinguished from plants by their complex form of sexual reproduction. They are freshwater and marine, terrestrial and subterranean; some are neustonic (living at the interface of water and the atmosphere). They live in various protozoa and within other plants. They live also in soil and on soil surfaces, on long-persistent snows, and in Antarctic rocks. Thermophilic algae inhabit hot springs. (From Webster, 3d ed; from Bold & Wynne, Introduction to the Algae, 2d ed, pp1-6)

A phylum of photosynthetic EUKARYOTA bearing double membrane-bound plastids containing chlorophyll a and b. They comprise the classical green algae, and represent over 7000 species that live in a variety of primarily aquatic habitats. Only about ten percent are marine species, most live in freshwater.

Algae of the division Chlorophyta, in which the green pigment of CHLOROPHYLL is not masked by other pigments. Green algae have over 7000 species and live in a variety of primarily aquatic habitats. Only about ten percent are marine species, most live in freshwater. They are more closely related to the green vascular land PLANTS than any other group of algae.
