Quit Smoking Infographic Available

Smoking is the second leading cause of cardiovascular disease, following high blood pressure. People who smoke are up to six times more likely to suffer a heart attack than non-smokers. However quitting is not easy and patients are often complaining about not knowing how to stop smoking. The ACC’s CardioSmart team has developed an infographic explaining how smoking affects cardiovascular health and what are the best ways to stop smoking. The Quit Smoking Infographic can be downloaded for free, along with other CardioSmart infographic posters that can be used as point-of-care graphics for your waiting and exam rooms. Visit CardioSmart.org/QuitSmoking for more tools and resources to help your patients stop smoking, including a video and steps for quitting.
