Peripheral arterial disease is one of the most common disorders. When patients with this illness go further, they get cramping in their legs, which goes away when they rest. The initial phase of treatment is medical supervision and exercise therapy. If the problem worsens, minimally invasive procedures such as an angiography catheter- based procedure or bypass surgery are available.
For some metabolic abnormalities that cause disease after surgery, the treatment technique indicated by your doctor should be followed on a regular basis, and the medications prescribed should be taken without fail. It is preferable for the patient to avoid smoking, other tobacco products, and alcohol consumption. Regular exercise is also beneficial to heart health. Heavy exercise is not advised during this time. You could prefer brisk walking or light jogging, especially when the sternum has healed. Swimming and other sports may be added in the future.
Cardio refers to heart problems, whereas vascular refers to circulation problems outside of the heart. A cardiovascular specialist is an expert in the heart's vascular system.
High blood pressure is a common disorder affecting the arteries of the body. It is also known as hypertension. Normal blood pressure is 120/80 or below.
If a first-degree relative (parents, siblings, or children) has had a heart attack in the past, the risk of having one more than doubles. The family history in the cause of heart attacks is significant. While there are exceptions, heart attacks are more common among elderly people. A usual age for a male to have a heart attack is 55 years or older, and 65 years or older for a woman. When heart attacks occur in men under the age of 55 and women under the age of 65, it is referred to as a Premature Heart Attack or Premature Coronary Artery Disease. In India, over the previous two decades, an increasing number of young adults have died from heart attacks.
