November is Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month
Pulmonary hypertension and associated cardiovascular diseases are health conditions associated with intimate partner violence. Diseases such as high blood cholesterol, heart attacks, heart disease, and strokes are comorbid health conditions related to intimate partner violence. Primary care physicians and nurses can help improve the cardiovascular health outcomes of their patients by routinely assessing for domestic violence during annual exams. For more examples of how intimate partner violence affects cardiovascular health and to begin routine screening for domestic violence, view the Impact of IPV on Women’s Health from Making the Connection: Intimate Partner Violence and Public Health.
