ABSTRACT
Introduction: Cardiovascular diseases are the most common cause of death in the world. The reduction of those risk factors minimizes the probability of disease, while in ill patients it causes a milder course of ailments and fewer complications (Kosobudzki, Bortkiewicz, 2012). Material and Methods: The preventive program was conducted among 2500 people aged 40- 60 with a high risk of developing cardiovascular disease. 1325 women and 1175 men were qualified for the study. A prophylactic examination card consisting of three stages was used (metrics questions, image and analytical tests, and an evaluation questionnaire). Results: 76% of people participating in the project confirmed the occurrence of heart attack and stroke in the family. Physical activity was confirmed only by 22% of respondents. Unfortunately, as much as 88.39% of the surveyed inhabitants of the Biała Podlaska County had BMI index in the range equal to or above the value of 25. Analytical studies among 88% of respondents were considered as being incorrect by the doctors. Using the SCORE algorithm, nearly 60% of subjects were classified to the category of moderate cardiovascular risk. Conclusions: It was examined that nearly 60% of people participating in the project were in a group of moderate risk of death due to a cardiovascular incident. The control in cardiology clinics was the most frequent recommendation from doctors working in outpatient counselling centres. This recommendation related to more than 27% of all respondents.
