How Does Coronary Heart Disease Affect The Respiratory System
Heart disease is a condition in which a person has problems within his or her vascular system and heart, which includes both congenital birth defects and problems acquired later. Examples of heart disease include clogging (atherosclerosis) of the coronary (heart) arteries, heart attacks (obstructions of the arteries), damaged heart valves, heart muscle failure, and viral infections of the heart. Some major causes of heart disease include genetics, smoking, hypertension, high ...Read more
My new job requires being sprayed with pepper spray. Is this safe for someone with triple coronary heart disease and respiratory problems?
Variable: Some folks may have palpitations, arrhythmia s including atrial fibrillation, pvcs, and slow- bradycardias or complete heart block. With an acute event ventricular tachycardia.And/ or ventricular fibrillation may occur and cause death. Many persons with CAD do not have pulse symptoms.See 1 more doctor answer
Respiration and hear: Severe coronary artery disease advrsly affecet respirations.
???: Do you mean how are science and medicine used in relations to heart disease. Cad? If so, scientific methods are used to study CAD with respect to risks, medications, outcomes, etc. This science helps improve medical care of patients with cad. The information flows both ways: doctors can create studies to investigate what they are seeing with patients, researchers can innovate on entirely new ideas.See 1 more doctor answer

What age does coronary heart disease happen most commonly especially with family history, metabolic syndrome?
HIGHLY variable!: Hi. The risk goes up as you age, and at any age, populations with positive family history and metabolic syndrome have higher risk of CHD than otherwise matched populations without those characteristics. You can use the Framingham Risk Score (online), but still, it assigns risk based on population studies. You, the individual, have genetics and environmental characteristics not taken into account.
Many things: Many things contribute; some modifiable, others not. Things you can't change include family history, gender, genetics (although you can test for the latter). Things you can change or at least affect: smoking (stop!), exercise, diet, cholesterol & other biomarkers, diabetes/prediabetes/insulin resistance, blood pressure, inflammation. These things damage vessel walls & lead to plaque formation/chd.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Unfortunately, we are finding coronary artery disease in younger and younger patients everyday. This used to be a disease of the older population, but now we see it in people who are no older than 30 years old at times, especially if they are diabetic or if they smoke heavily. However, it is still more commonly encountered in people older than 50 overall.See 1 more doctor answer
Multiple factors: Lifestyle can contribute to developing coronary heart disease. Smoking is a big risk factor for developing cad. Inactivity and lack of excercise along with poor eating habits can also contribute. Not adhering to a medication regimen for diabetic or those with high cholesterol or blood pressure further adds to the risk.See 1 more doctor answer
Insulin resistance: Metabolic syndrome is very preventable. Excessive sugar and carbohydrate intake cause high blood sugar levels, which then make your Insulin levels rise. Over time the chronically high Insulin levels lead to Insulin resistance and you will need to make higher and higher levels of Insulin to maintain normal blood sugar levels. Eventually you will have full blown diabetes, heart disease and htn.See 1 more doctor answer
Estrogen: Premenopausal women are protected by the estrogen their ovaries make. The exogenous estrogen taken after menopause doesn't do the job. There are many theories as to why endogenous estrogen is protective but beyond the scope of this forum. I have never seen a premenopausal women with a heart attack unless she smokes or has diabetes. You can take that to the bank!
The leading cause of death and disability in adults in the U.S. It develops when lipid (fatty) plaques builds up in the arteries, thereby stopping blood flow to the organ supplied by that artery. If the artery supplies the heart, blockage causes a heart attack. If the blockage is in a brain vessel, the ...Read more
