To learn about heart health and atherosclerosis, a silent disease that is linked to nearly one in four deaths in U.S., the public is invited to take a virtual tour in a mobile motion simulator, the Artery Explorer at St. Luke's Woodlands Hospital in The Woodlands, Tx.

Through the human circulatory system, the Artery Explorer is an interactive motion simulator experience that takes participants on a virtual tour of an artery affected by atherosclerosis alongside red blood cells. On Wednesday, November 11, the educational exhibit will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the new St. Luke's Lakeside Hospital, located on the south side of the St. Luke's The Woodlands Hospital campus on the corner of Hwy. 242 and I-45.

The Artery Explorer is part of a nationwide effort to raise awareness of heart disease and specifically atherosclerosis, the progressive build-up of plaque in the walls of the arteries, the ""US AGAINST ATHERO"" educational campaign. To help people understand the potential dangers of atherosclerosis, the risk factors, and what they can do about it, the Explorer was created.

The disease may start early in life for many people. Arterial plaque can build up and restrict blood flow, with age. This disease can eventually clog arteries, limiting or blocking blood flow over time. It is important to work with a physician to identify controllable and uncontrollable risk factors for atherosclerosis, because atherosclerosis usually has no symptoms until the artery becomes completely blocked or severely narrowed.

St. Luke's Woodlands Hospital is located in The Woodlands, near beautiful subdivisions such as Alden Bridge, Harper's Landing, Panther Creek and Windsor Lakes.
