Who Knew The Heart Was So Cool?

Here at Coherex, we are revolutionizing the treatment of atrial fibrillation. Since your heart is so important, we want to share some fascinating facts about it with you:

Here Are The Facts:

●Your heart is an amazing organ. It fits inside your chest and beats from the moment you are born until the moment you die. Your heart will beat an average of 100,000 times every day, which is about 35 million times every year! In the average human lifetime the heart will beat about 2.5 billion times, usually without fail and without hesitation.

●Human bodies contain about 5.6 liters of blood. All 5.6 liters are circulated through the body 3 times each minute. This means your blood travels a very long distance every day, even as it stays right in your own body. Each day your blood travels 12,000 miles, about 4 times the distance across the United States.

●Your heart is connected to a long, intricate network of veins and capillaries that are more than 60,000 miles long—enough to travel around the world multiple times! Blood gets pushed through the entire cardiovascular system about once every 20 seconds.

Coherex Is Making A Difference

Isn’t the human heart amazing? We think so. That’s why we at Coherex are working hard to make a safer left atrial appendage occlusion commercially available, which would help those with atrial fibrillation who are at greater risk for a stroke.
