Heart and blood vessels are two parts of the cardiovascular system.

The phrase “cardiovascular disease” (CVD) embraces a wide range of disorders, including the ones mentioned below.

Diagnosis and treatment of coronary heart disease Angina, myocardial infarction (MI), and heart failure are all symptoms of coronary heart disease (CHD), which is also known as coronary artery disease (CAD). Between one-third and one-half of all cases of cardiovascular disease Transient ischemic attack (TIA), a type of stroke, falls under the umbrella term “cerebrovascular illness” (TIA) An arterial condition that affects the lower extremities and may result in claudication is called peripheral artery disease (PAD). Thoracic and abdominal aneurysms are caused by atherosclerosis of the aorta. Stroke and heart disease are the major causes of death in the world. Atherosclerosis progression is what is meant by primary prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Cardiovascular prophylaxis necessitates a shift in risk factors and behavioral patterns.

Behavioral Risk Factors:

  • Inactivity
  • Smoking and drinking
  • Poor diet (nearly 80% from cardiovascular disease)

Risk factors for cardiovascular disease(modifiable)

  • a poor diet
  • a lack of exercise
  • smoking

Individuals who demonstrate these behaviors may have:

  • elevated blood pressure
  • lipids
  • glucose levels in addition to being overweight or obese.

Risk factors (non- modifiable)

  • Genealogy
  • Postmenopausal women are at a similar risk to males in terms of age and gender, while men have a higher risk than premenopausal women.
  • Ethnic heritage
  • Socioeconomic status

A heart attack or stroke is often the initial symptom of an underlying cardiovascular condition.

  • Chest pain or discomfort in the center
  • Arms, jaw pain and shoulder pain with referred pain to the back
  • Breathlessness
  • Vomiting or nausea
  • Light-headedness
  • Pallor
  • Sweaty palms

Stroke symptoms may include the following:

  • There may be a lack of self-confidence as well as trouble communicating or comprehending.
  • Fainting
  • Inheritance Traces
  • Left sided weakness of arms legs and face

Simply because your family has a history of cardiovascular disease does not guarantee that you will develop the disease; rather, it indicates that you are more likely to develop it. Disease is not inevitable, and lifestyle changes such as those described above can help you manage your health.

Smoking

Smoking and exposure to second hand smoke are to blame for a third of all deaths from coronary heart disease. Tobacco use is a factor in more than 90% of cases of lung cancer in the United States.

Almost one-third of coronary heart disease deaths are caused by smoking or exposure to second-hand smoke

While smoking rates are declining overall, far too many adults continue to smoke, vape, or use other forms of tobacco, particularly those between the ages of 21 and 34.

Around half of all children in the United States between the ages of 3 and 11 are exposed to second-hand smoke.

On average, smokers outlive non-smokers by more than ten years.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cigarette smoke contains over 5,000 chemical components, hundreds of which are harmful to human health.
