One too many drinks
can land you in the
hospital.

WHAT ARE
THE ODDS

of Dying of
Heart Disease?

1 in 4

Although heart disease
claims more than 630,000
lives yearly in the United
States-the nation's
No. 1 killer-we have
some control over our
risk factors. To reduce
your risk, exercise 30
minutes most days, eat
a heart-healthy diet,
maintain a healthy
weight, reduce stress,
manage cholesterol and
blood pressure levels,
and quit smoking.

Alcohol-Related
Emergencies on the Rise
Americans are taking more trips to the emergency department because of alcohol,
according to a National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism study. Between
2006 and 2014, alcohol-related visits to U.S. emergency departments increased by
47 percent.
Researchers studied both acute emergencies, such as alcohol poisoning, and
problems related to chronic alcohol misuse, including cirrhosis of the liver and
withdrawal. In the nine years studied, alcohol-related emergency department visits
increased from about 3 million a year to 5 million a year.
Spikes in alcohol-related emergencies were especially evident among women
and people in middle age and older.
Men still make up the majority of alcohol-related emergencies, but women's
rate increased more rapidly than men's during the study period (up 5.3 percent
versus 4 percent annually). Women had a larger increase in emergencies related to
chronic alcohol use.

JARGON
WATCH

INTUBATION simply means the placement of a
tube in a patient's body. The term often refers to
tracheal intubation, a procedure in which a flexible plastic tube is fed through a patient's mouth
and down the windpipe to maintain an airway or
deliver medications.
