In brief: A general term
All diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, can be divided into acute (new) or chronic (on-going).
A medical aphorism is "to treat acute problems acutely and chronic problems chronically". Think of the difference as a "sprint" vs a "marathon." urgent problems may require immediate attention, although not all acute cv disorders are serious.
