Cardiovascular diseases are the sources of mortality in our world today. It remains to be
one of the leading threats of death today. 31% of people die of cardiovascular diseases in the
world. It constitutes around 17.7 million deaths. It is certainly triggered by smoking, excessive
use of alcohol and tobacco and finally lack of proper physical activity. In the long run, it may
display itself as high blood pressure, obesity or increased blood glucose. Therefore,
cardiovascular diseases are always liked with fat sediments or cholesterol sediments accumulate
at the walls of arteries. This makes it difficult for the blood to pass through the arteries, therefore,
less oxygen supply to the body (Sutton Amy. 2010). The accumulation of fat deposits is known
as atherosclerosis and this may elevate the risks of acquiring blood clots. Cardiovascular diseases
may include; heart failure, Arrhythmias, coronary heart diseases and Rheumatic heart disease
Heart failure is one of the most experienced cardiovascular diseases in our world today. The
Heart attack occurs in patients who have inherited the disease or have acquired it through their
way of living. The issue of heart failure varies between various areas in the world. Heart failure
distresses about 2% of today's of the western countries and the possibilities increasing 1% in
people above 40 years and about 10% increased chances to people above 75 years.
Coronary heart disease is also a cardiovascular disease that is killing very many people even the
young people in the society. Coronary heart disease transpires when a plague assembles itself
inside the walls of the coronary arteries. These arteries are used to supply blood to the heart
which also limits the amount of oxygen into the heart. The disease occurs through a process
called atherosclerosis. A blood clot can easily form when blood is having a difficult time to pass
through the coronary artery and this causes a heart attack or stroke. A heart attack will occur
when the track of the blood flow is blocked with a blood clot. The blood clot will grow and end
up cutting off the supply of blood to the heart. The heart muscles begin to die slowly. When the
heart attack is attended on time, the patient has very high possibilities of surviving the first heart
attack. The most common type of stroke is known as an Ischemic stroke. This occurs when the
vessel that takes blood to the brain is blocked. The blood supply to the brain is censored due to a
blood clot. The brain cells slowly start to die. This causes the person to be unable to carry out
other functions such as walking.
A Peripheral arterial disease is also a common disease acquired by very many people in the
word. It is also connected to the atherosclerosis process. It is a poly vascular disease since it
happens with vascular diseases in different parts of the body. Fatty sediments and calcium may
accumulate at the walls of the arteries.
Cardiovascular diseases have been a threat today. About 31% of the world's population today
perishes due to cardiovascular diseases. An estimate of around 17.7 million people died in 2015
and 7.4 million out of the 17.7 million died because of ischemic heart disease and 6.7 million in
the population of the world die due to stroke. This was seen as a very big global problem in our
world today.
Cardiovascular is seen as a major threat to our world today. In 22nd September 2016 "global
hearts” a new organization from the World Health Organization. This is a threat since it is based
on our lifestyle. It includes salt intake, tobacco control, and diet controlled blood pressure and
finally controls BMI. This reduces the chances of acquiring the disease. In some cases, young
children may be born with heart illness such as Heart Murmurs, coronary heart disease and also
Atherosclerosis. Children can get heart attacks though it is a very rare condition.
Cardiovascular illness can affect any American. People with lower social economic status have
a higher risk to develop a heart disease than those who have more wealth and those who are more
learned. According to a current study done by UC Davis, he wrote an online book in BMC
cardiovascular disorders. He stated that the risk persists with long-term progress in tackling
traditional risk dynamics such as high blood pressure and smoking. Peter Frank a UC Davis
professor stated that a being less advantaged in the education and also being poor is a factor that
leads to cardiovascular diseases. Refereeing to the data from the Atherosclerosis hazard in
community studies, writers of the present study gave out a report that 12000 individual's age 45
to 64 years living in areas such as North Carolina or Minnesota. Members report their education
and income levels in 1987 are assessed for heart disease diagnoses and that changes the
possibilities of having risks such as blood pressure and cholesterol risks.
Other groups that are very vulnerable to cardiovascular heart diseases are racial. The elderly
people in the society, the homeless, the people having HIV, those with persistent health
conditions and finally those with very vital mental illness are among the sensitive social groups
who can acquire the disease very easily.
To begin with, the mentally disabled, homeless people and the people having the HIV have
trouble eating (Mann ,2015). They eat what they have at the table not minding their diet. This
increases the chances of one suffering from the cardiovascular diseases. Heart disease affects
mostly ethnic groups in the United States especially the black Americans, American Indians and
Pacific Islanders. Very many Americans are at the risk of acquiring the disease and
unfortunately they barely acknowledge that when they are experiencing the disease. Other
medical conditions can put one on the verge of having a heart disease. These medical conditions
include diabetes and excessive alcohol.
Women are affected by heart diseases more than men and statistics say that one in four women
die out of cardiovascular disease in the United States. Ischemic heart disease has killed very
many women in the country as compared to men. This occurs to women between the ages of 35-
54 years. (Andrade and pinto, 2014)Women tend to have very unclear symptoms, therefore, it is
difficult to detect if it is a heart disease. Altogether, women tend to have smaller arteries than
men, therefore; the Coronary artery disease develops slightly differently and faster as compared
to men.
Physical activities are advised to be practiced in order to maintain a very healthy lifestyle.
Unfortunately, no one can predict the amount of physical activity can be performed in order to
prevent coronary heart diseases (Labarthe, 2011). People should also keep regular checks ups of
their bodies in order to know how to even treat the disease before it adversely affects one. One
can also be keen on the diet perceiving daily. A diet should be less of cholesterol and fats. The
food should contain more fruits and vegetables, rich in fiber products and minimize meat intake
(shumaker and Czajkowski 1994). People who are at the red light of acquiring the disease
should be really taken care of themselves by sojourn smoking, acquire good eating diet plan and
follow it, control diabetes and finally minimize stress ( Aggie and Benson 2004).
Social impacts may include depression. When the patient discovers that they may be suffering
from a chronic heart disease, they may get depressed very easily. Statistics say that about 27% of
the patients end up being depressed due to their current health state.
Researchers have also discovered that the status of their patients may affect them
psychologically. Aspects such as embarrassment and stigma may affect the patient too. The
patient may also be too afraid to go back to the hospital not knowing what to expect next and
finally the patient may be afraid to die due to their current heart condition.
I hereby advocate that people should take really good care of their selves to maintain good
health. People should eat a healthy diet and one should visit the doctor more frequently. Patients
should also go for counseling sessions in order to prepare the patient mentally and also to
encourage the patient that he or she will be better soon. Also, encourage the patient to do a little
exercise every day that won't overwork the patient and that would help the patient keep a stable
