The Morbidity & Mortality: Chart Book on Cardiovascular, Lung, and Blood Diseases is a biennial compilation of data on the size and trends of morbidity and mortality from the cardiovascular, lung, and blood diseases. While most charts describe national prevalence, hospitalizations, and mortality statistics, some of them provide additional information by state or country. Risk factors estimates and the economic costs of these diseases are also included.
This year, the NHLBI is providing two PDF versions of the Chart Book: our standard PDF file that will print out like the printed version, and a PDF file created with improved accessibility for visitors who use screen readers.
The following PowerPoint slides contain the same information that is available on the Chart Book accessible PDF document, only the format is different. Slides were created for charts found in chapters 3,4 and 5 of the Chart Book.
PowerPoint slides for Microsoft Office 2007 and earlier versions:
Chapter3 (6,183 kb)
Chapter 4 (3,831 kb)
Chapter 5 (1,395 kb)
