Congratulations to the winners! After reviewing hundreds of websites, Pacific Medical Training is happy to award these sites with our "Best of Cardiac & Heart Sites" Award. We fully appreciate and can understand the time and commitment it takes to maintain a website and continue to provide current content easily accessible to the sites viewers.

Websites

  1. www.hearthealthyonline.com - From the Better Homes and Gardens network of sites comes "heart healthy Living". This website presents a complete and multifaceted view of heart health. With category pages: Heart Disease Overview, Heart Attack & Stroke, Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, Know Your Risk, Health Recipies, Fitness and even includes a Glossary; this site covers all things heart. Also has a free newsletter you can sign up for for heart smart tips directly to your email!

     

  2. www.stopcardiacarrest.org - The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Coalition (SCAC) is comprised over 40 organizations working toward the prevention of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) by way of education and awareness. A very informative site with very good statistics. We found the presentation of statistics by state very good and the information provided on that page very shocking. A great site working for a great cause.

     

  3. www.sca-aware.org - Here is another site doing wonders to create awareness, education and a reduction in the number of deaths or disabilities due to Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). This foundation provides SCA News, Blog posts, Active Forum Topics, AED information, Survivor Stories, Survivor Videos and more. A content rich site providing an abundance of information around SCA and the efforts of their foundation.

     

  4. www.lisanelsonrd.com/blog - This is the blog of Registered Dietitian Lisa Nelson who had been dealing with borderline high cholesterol since her early 20's. Through the use of food and exercise, she has personally lowered her cholesterol and is eager to help others who find themselvs in a similar situation. She now specializes in heart health, specifically focusing on lowering cholesterol, blood pressure and helpinig those in need of losing weight. Her blog is a very clean, content rich site getting into the very specifics of nutrition and how it affects the body.

     

  5. www.theheart.org - Theheart.org is a cutting-edge website that reports on the latest cardiac-related news. They have entire sections devoted to ACS, Arrhythmia, Brain/Kidney/Peripheral, Clinical cardiology, Hypertension, prevention and much more. This is a subscription-based website and for those with a passing interest in anything related to the heart, it is well worth it!

     

  6. http://www.drsinatra.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/blog.list - Dr. Stephen Sinatra is a renowned cardiologist with a successful holistic approach that has revitalized many patients from some of the most difficult illnesses. Dr. Sinatra uses a blend of natural core therapies and tradition treatments to give his patients the best possible outcomes. His website provides a wealth of information about cardiac illnesses and treatments.

     

  7. blog.trackyourplaque.com - Trackyourplaque.com is a unique heart disease website that seeks to help people prevent heart disease by controlling the build-up of plaque. The brain behind this creative site is Dr. William Davis, a Milwaukee cardiologist. On his site, he gives very helpful information on diet and nutritional supplements. Users can also sign up for the track your plaque program and join a growing community of people seeking to prevent heart disease by lowering plaque.

     

  8. www.cardiachealth.org - Cardiachealth.org was created to help people suffering from Coronary Artery Disease and Heart Disease. It is a one-stop shop location for information on heart disease for patients and health care providers alike. It also follows industry trends and seeks to simplify medical jargon so that non-medical trained people can clearly understand heart-related explanations. Overall this is a wonderful website with a tremendous amount of resources. Check it out!

     

  9. myheartsisters.org - Myheartsisters.org is clearly a project of care and passion. Carolyn Thomas, the author, has a background in journalism, communications and public relations. She also suffered a heart attack in May of 2008. This experienced compelled her to begin a website devoted to women who are facing heart disease and other heart-related ailments. While not a doctor or a trained physician, Carolyn possesses a tremendous ability to communicate with clarity. Her website beautifully designed and definitely worthy of our “best-of” list.

     

  10. www.familyatheart.org - This site comes by way of the Preventative Cardiovascular Nurses Association and really focuses on the family unit. The first category page "For Parents & Families" breaks into sub-categories Key Facts about Heart Disease, A Heart Healthy Lifestyle, Be a Role Model, Kids Corner and Heart Healthy Links. In another section "Foods to Live By" is supported by content around Meal Planning, Heart Healthy Recipes and Food Substitutions. Quick and easy site to navigate around and pull information from.
