Acute coronary syndrome is sudden decrease in blood flow to heart typically caused by coronary artery disease. Symptoms include chest pain, shortness of breath, sweating, vomiting, sudden weakness and pain, also irregular heartbeat. When arteries are blocked heart does not get enough oxygen and causes angina and heart attack.
CVDs include diseases of the heart, vascular diseases of the brain and diseases of blood vessels. CVDs are responsible for over 17.3 million deaths per year and are the leading causes of death in the world .The different types of CVDs are listed below.
Atherosclerosis: Ischaemic heart disease or coronary artery disease, Cerebrovascular disease, Diseases of the aorta and arteries, including hypertension and peripheral vascular disease. Other CVDs are Congenital heart disease, Rheumatic heart disease, Cardiomyopathies, Cardiac arrhythmias.
Coronary Heart Disease: Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) is the most common form of heart disease. It occurs when the arteries supplying blood to the heart narrow or harden from the build-up of plaque. Plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol and other substances found in the blood. The location of the plaque determines the type of heart disease.
- Coronary artery disease is the accumulation of plaque in the arteries supplying blood to the heart.
- Peripheral artery diseaseis the accumulation of plaque in the arteries supplying blood to the arms and legs.
- Carotid artery diseaseis the accumulation of plaque in the arteries that supply blood to the brain.

Hypertension, additionally called high vital sign or blood vessel cardiovascular disease could be a chronic medical condition during which the blood pressure within the arteries is elevated. This session principally covers the various sorts of cardiovascular disease and their assessment. There are 2 primary cardiovascular disease sorts. For ninety fifth of individuals with high blood pressure, the reason behind their cardiovascular disease is unknown — this can be referred to as essential, or primary, cardiovascular disease. Once a cause may be found, the condition is termed secondary. Isolated systolic hypertension, high blood pressure, and resistant hypertension are all recognized hypertension sorts with specific diagnostic criteria.
Assessment of cardiovascular disease primarily includes: Confirmation of hypertension, Risk factors, Underlying causes, organ injury & Indications and contraindications for medication medicine.
Hypertension could be a major risk issue for cardiopathy and stroke. Globally, the general prevalence of raised vital sign in adults aged twenty five and over was around four-hundredth in 2008. As a result of increase and ageing, the amount of individuals with uncontrolled cardiovascular disease rose from 600 million in 1980 to just about 1 billion in 2008. The national Million Hearts initiative endeavours to extend the amount of persons whose cardiovascular disease is in check, by ten million, as a part of its goal to forestall one million heart attacks and strokes by the year 2017.

Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a chronic progressive condition that affects the pumping power of your heart muscles. While often referred to simply as “heart failure,” CHF specifically refers to the stage in which fluid builds up around the heart and causes it to pump inefficiently.
You have four heart chambers. The upper half of your heart has two atria, and the lower half of your heart has two ventricles. The ventricles pump blood to your organs and tissues, and the atria receive blood as it circulates back from the rest of your body.
Left-sided CHF is the most common type of CHF. It occurs when your left ventricle doesn’t properly pump blood out to your body. As the condition progresses, fluid can build up in your lungs, which makes breathing difficult.
Right-sided CHF is when the right ventricle has difficulty pumping blood to your lungs. Blood backs up in your blood vessels, which causes fluid retention in your lower extremities, abdomen, and other vital organs.
It’s possible to have left-sided and right-sided CHF at the same time. Usually, the disease starts in the left side and then travels to the right when it’s left untreated.

A stroke occurs when blood flow to part of the brain is cut off or significantly reduced. Without oxygen carried by the blood, brain cells can die quickly, which can cause permanent brain damage. There are two types of stroke: ischemic and hemorrhagic. Ischemic stroke is caused by the absence of blood flow to the brain tissue. This can be caused when the arteries in the brain shrink due to a condition such as atherosclerosis. A blood clot can form in the arteries to narrow and block blood flow. This is called thrombosis. Another cause of ischemic stroke is an embolism. This occurs when a blood clot is formed somewhere in the body, and then moves to the brain and blocks blood flow.

Congenital heart disease is a problem with the heart's structure and function that is present at birth Pediatric heart disease is a term used to describe several different heart conditions in children. The most common type of pediatric heart disease is congenital, meaning that children are born with it. Congenital heart defects (CHD) can exist in adults, but are still considered CHD if the adult was born with the disease.

Surgeons have tried for centuries to help patients suffering from heart disease or trauma, but only recently has their desire been matched by knowledge, experience and technology. Recently many new and important reports about advances in cardiac surgery have been presented. With respect to congenital heart disease, coronary artery diseases, Valvular disease, novel surgeries, atrial fibrillation and therapeutics are introduced according to recent report. The related subtopics are medical apparatus an instruments are presented as septation of single ventricle with double-patch procedure, anatomical repair for Epstein’s anomaly, gene therapy, stem cell therapy, trans-catheter aortic valve implantation, minimally invasive heart bypass surgery, radiofrequency ablation, artificial pacemaker, cardiac rehabilitation and valve-sparing aortic root replacement.
A heart transplant is a surgical procedure performed to remove the diseased heart from a patient and replace it with a healthy one from an organ donor. In order to remove the heart from the donor, two or more doctors must declare the donor brain-dead. Before a person can be put on a waiting list for a heart transplant, a doctor makes the determination that this is the best treatment option available for the person's heart failure. The most common reason is that one or both ventricles have aren't functioning properly and severe heart failure is present. Ventricular failure can happen in many forms of congenital heart disease, but is more common in congenital defects with a single ventricle or if long-standing valve obstruction or leakage has led to irreversible heart failure.

Cardiovascular nursing is a nursing specialty that works with patients who suffer from various conditions of the cardiovascular system. Cardiac nurses help treat conditions such as unstable angina, cardiomyopathy, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction and cardiac dysrhythmia under the direction of a cardiologist. Cardiac nurses perform postoperative care on a surgical unit, stress test evaluations, cardiac monitoring, vascular monitoring, and health assessments. Cardiac nurses work in many different environments, including coronary care units (CCU), cardiac catheterization, intensive care units (ICU), operating theatres, cardiac rehabilitation centers, clinical research, cardiac surgery wards, cardiovascular intensive care units (CVICU), and cardiac medical wards.

Cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) is the heart and kidney disorders such as acute or long-term dysfunction in one organ may induce acute or long-term dysfunction of the other. CRS is characterized by the triad concomitant decrease in renal function, heart failure resistant to therapy with congestion (i.e., diuretic resistance), and worsening of renal function during treatment of heart failure. Acute increase in the level of serum creatinine accompanies 21% -45% of hospitalizations for decompensated heart failure. 50% of patients with CHF decreased renal function.

Heart failure is a growing epidemic caused by cardiomyocyte depletion. Current therapies prolong survival by protecting remaining cardiomyocytes but are unable to overcome the fundamental problem of regenerating lost cardiomyocytes. Several strategies for promoting heart regeneration have emerged from decades of intensive study. Although some of these strategies remain confined to basic research, others are beginning to be tested in humans. We review strategies for cardiac regeneration and summarize progress of related clinical trials.

People with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher are considered obese. The term obesity is used to describe the health condition of anyone significantly above his or her ideal healthy weight. Obesity increases the risk for heart disease and stroke. But it harms more than just the heart and blood vessel system. It's also a major cause of gallstones, osteoarthritis and respiratory problems. Obesity is intimately intertwined with multiple health conditions that underlie cardiovascular disease including high blood pressure, diabetes, and abnormal blood cholesterol. In addition, weight gain is a frequent consequence of heart-damaging lifestyle choices such as lack of exercise and a fat-laden diet. Obesity also can lead to heart failure. This is a serious condition in which your heart can't pump enough blood to meet your body's needs.

Cardio metabolic risk refers to your chances of having diabetes, heart disease or stroke. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in people with mental illness. People with mental illness also have high rates of diabetes, which can lead to many other health problems. Lowering your cardio metabolic risk can help prevent more serious health problems down the road. Cardio metabolic syndrome (CMS) is a clustering of interrelated risk factors that promote the development of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus.

The role of diet is crucial in the development and prevention of cardiovascular disease. Diet is one of the key things you can change that will impact all other cardiovascular risk factors.
Comparisons between a diet low in saturated fats, with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, and the typical diet of someone living in the developed world show that in the former there is a 73% reduction in the risk of new major cardiac events.
A healthy diet and lifestyle can reduce your risk of:
- Heart disease, heart attacks, and stroke
- Conditions that lead to heart disease, including high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and obesity
- Other chronic health problems, including type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and some forms of cancer
Eat an overall healthy dietary pattern that emphasizes:
- a variety of fruits and vegetables,
- whole grains,
- low-fat dairy products,
- skinless poultry and fish
- nuts and legumes
- non-tropical vegetable oils
Clinical research efforts in acute coronary syndromes provide a useful model for examining large, multicenter effectiveness trials in an acute, life-threatening disease. Robert Califf, Vice Chancellor for Clinical Research and Director of the Duke Translational Medicine Institute, reflected on the notable successes of the ACS field in translating basic science into early clinical trials, and then into definitive trials that evaluate outcomes related to key clinical questions.

Cardiac is an important muscular organ in humans and other animals, pumps blood through the vessels of the circulatory system. In medicine, a case report is a detailed report of symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of an individual patient. Case report may contain a demographic profile of patient but usually describe an unusual or novel occurrence. Different case report can be done such as case reports on cardiac arrest and diseases have a great value and help in advancing and development of treatment strategies.
