Cardiovascular disease generally refers to condition that involve narrowed or blocked blood vessels that can lead to heart attack, chest pain (angina) or stroke. Other heart conditions, such as those that affect your heart muscles, valves, or rhythm also are considered forms of heart disease.
Heart failure- When heart can’t pump enough blood throughout the body. Heart failure doesn’t mean that that your heart has stopped or is about to stop working.
Heart attack- When the blood flow to a part of the heart is blocked, usually by a blood clot.
Arrhythmia- It is a problem with the speed rhythm of the heartbeat caused by disorder in the heart’s electric system.
Atherosclerosis- Harding of the arteries, or when the inner wall or arteries become narrow due to a build-up of plaque(usually caused by a Diet high in Fat, cigarette smoking diabetes or hypertension). This limits the flow of blood to the heart and brain.
Aneurysm- It is a balloon like bulge in the wall of an artery or the heart muscles. This bulge can occur if the artery wall weakness. Pressure from blood moving through the artery or heart causes the weak area to bulge.
