In brief: CAD
By reducing the demand and increasing the coronary blood supply we can pharmacologically reduce anginal symptoms and manage CAD medically.
Beta-blockers, nitrates, and calcium channel blockers can help. Aspirin reduces the risk of mi by making platelets less likely to stick together and cause clots. Lipi-lowering meds like statins can stabilize and slow progression of blockages.
