Cardiovascular information for doctors and patients

On a global scale, the health research community is now well aware of the impending global pandemic of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and the alarmingly increasing rates of these disorders especially in less-developed countries. Current estimates show that approximately 15 million deaths each year are due to cardiovascular disease. The projections for the next 20 years are even more staggering.

Cardiovascular disease comes from disease of the arterial tree which carries blood to all organs in the body. The various types of Cardiovascular disease are as follows:

High blood pressure / Hypertension

As well as being a cardiovascular condition, hypertension is also the single most important risk factor for stroke and other cardiovascular diseases.


Affects the arteries leading to and within the brain

Heart attack

If a blood clot develops in one of coronary arteries, the blood supply to an area of the heart muscle will stop, starving the muscle of oxygen – and a heart attack will occur.

Heart Failure

This doesn’t necessarily mean that the heart has failed; it is a term to describe a heart that is not working properly and cannot meet the body’s need for blood.

PVD Peripheral Vascular Disease

This occurs when blood flow to the arms, legs or other parts of the body becomes restricted
