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?
Related: The heart is the pump of the cardiovascular system. When it doesn't work well the cardiovascular system does not work well.
Mostly Heart: Coronary arteries are the main vessels coming off the aorta supplying blood to the heart muscle. There are 3 main coronary arteries. When they have significant plaques in them (coronary atherosclerosis, or coronary artery disease), people develop chest pains (angina), shortness of breath, chest tightness with exertion, heart attacks and various other consequences.

No plan I know of: Congenital heart disease (chd) is a sporadic event occuring in ~1% of births. It is frequently seen in chromasome disorders. Having one or more parents with a defect increases risk but not always for the same defects. Having a 1st child with chd increases risk for a 2nd. A healthy lifestyle prior to and during pregnancy is the best anyone can do. Even then, ~4% of nbns will have an issue to deal with.See 2 more doctor answers

Dissolution Therapy: If mom is having pain due to the gallstones and felt to be a poor candidate for surgery, it may be worth trying to dissolve the gallstones using medication (ursodiol). This is only suitable for small, non calcified stones and takes months to work. If she has a severe attack, an interventional radiologist can place a tube into the gallbladder to rx the blockage (percutaneous cholecystostomy).See 1 more doctor answer
Ecg: The PR interval is the period when the electrical impulse is being conducted from the sino atrial node down thru the atrium, thru the atrioventricular node and the conduction system to the ventricles. Prolongation of this can be caused by many factors ischemic, metabolic and structural and is not a specific indicator of a specific disease.
Temperature: In general it isn't a big deal. There can be some reflex cardiac rhythm problems and this is the reason for the caution.
I heard that homogenization of milk causes heart disease. I don't want to believe it. Is it true?

With heart disease in my family, my diet hasn't been great. Although I'm not overweight, and I exercise 2-3 times per week should I be concerned?
Pay attention: Family history is an extremely important determinant on the risk of heart disease. At your age, given an increased risk from family history you should be starting to engage in better dietary habits. Know your lipid profile and consider meds along with a better low fat diet if your LDL cholesterol is more than 130 (strive for 100). Exercise 5x per week. Avoid smoking. Starting young helps.
I was working very hard and hadn't slept for 36+ hours my heart rate was 44 last night usually around 50-60! Does this mean I have heart disease?
Not necessarily: A heart rate of 44 is low but for some people this is normal, particularly if you are an athlete. If you have no symptoms, such as dizziness or passing out this is good too. An EKG would be good to make sure your heart is beating from your sinus node. There is a problem called sick sinus syndrome that causes a low heart rate. Usually with this problem your heart rate doesn't increase. All the best
