MADRID, December 20 (EUROPA PRESS) –
Chironprevencion has reached an agreement with the National Center for Cardiovascular Research (CNIC) to improve knowledge of cardiovascular health. Thanks to this agreement, CNIC will be able to improve the study of the prevention of cardiovascular risks and associated illnesses, with the contribution of an anonymous and unpredictable database of more than 5 million medical examinations by Chironprevention.
This project, from a scientific point of view, analyzes the cardiovascular risk of the active Spanish population, taking into account different variables, from the nature of work to the consumption of habits, alcohol and tobacco, or physical exercise worker throughout the day.
According to Bory Ibanez, cardiologist at the Fundacion Jimenez Diaz Hospital and the director of the CNIC clinical research, "a database that can be studied through this agreement is unique." There is no study that could analyze the same sample size in Spain, with data collected over such a long period, from 2015 to 2018, and with information that allows for comparative analysis by type of activity, nutrition and even environmental and regional environment.
In a preliminary analysis, which was conducted after signing the agreement, variations at risk of heart attack were detected up to six times higher, according to habits and geographical area. This information, which belongs to the category of "Large Data" analysis, compares different variables and obtains information in order to "know the status of the active population of Spain and plan appropriate health promotion strategies," say Chironprevention.
