Transcript of Cardiovascular Diseases.
of the heart secondary to high blood pressure, heart failure, Cor pulmonale - a failure of the right side of the heart and Cardiac dysrhythmias - abnormalities of heart rhythm. Most of these are cause by the same reasons. You will read more about those soon. Statistics... Over the past 40 years the rates of heart disease and stroke have steadily declined. Rates are 25% in the past 10 years and 50% over the last 20. Every 7 minutes in Canada, someone dies from heart disease or stroke. Around 29% of the population of Canada dies of these diseases. 28% of the male population and about 29% of the female population dies of cardiovascular diseases. So if you were wondering about how common it is, its pretty common and you'll read more about how you can prevent it in the following paragraphs. Live healthy! Technology used to treat cardiovascular diseases... Researchers are forever coming up new methods to treat or detect cardiovascular diseases. In the following paragraphs you will read about two of these new and innovative ideas used in favor of this class of diseases and by the end of the presentation will know more about it. An artificial pacemaker is a device used to regulate one's heart beat using electrical impulses which are delivered by electrodes that contract the heart muscles. It's primary purpose is to maintain a stable heart beat either because the heart's native pacemaker is not fast enough, or there is a block in the heart's electrical conduction system.Modern pacemakers are externally programmable and allow the cardiologist to select the specific pacing modes for all individual patients. Some combine a pacemaker and defibrillator in just one implantable device for convenience. Others have multiple electrodes stimulating differing positions within the heart to improve synchronisation of the lower chambers (ventricles) of the heart. Building on their previous work delivering cancer drugs with nanoparticles, MIT and Harvard researchers have turned their attention to cardiovascular disease, designing new particles that can cling to damaged artery walls and slowly release medicine.The particles, called “nanoburrs,” are coated with tiny protein molecules that allow them to stick to the walls of damaged arteries. Once stuck, they can release drugs such as paclitaxel, which inhibits cell division and helps prevent growth of scar tissue that can clog arteries. What is it?
How common is it?
How many types are there? How do you get it?
What are the risks?
Do your daily life habit affect your cardiac health?
How can you prevent it? Are there symptoms?
Is it contagious?
What's the main age you get it at?
How often should you get yourself checked? What technology is used to treat or detect this class of diseases? How does it work? Everyone has questions but not everyone has the answers.... Some other common questions... Some common symptoms of cardiovascular diseases are chest pain and sudden numbness of the face or arms. If its reached a higher stage symptoms could be consistent fevers, coughs, colds and also possibly puking. Heart disease isn't contagious — you can't catch it like you can the flu or a cold. Instead, certain things increase a person's chances of getting cardiovascular disease. These could be a number of factors that might even be your daily habits as you saw earlier. Most common age you are likely to get a cardiovascular disease if you do at all is around 60 and older. Every decade after you turn 55 you risk of getting a heart diseases doubles. Checking yourself especially for cardiovascular disease is completely unnecessary unless you experience any of the symptoms. If not, your regular check ups will be sufficient. Other ways to prevent cardiovascular diseases. Donations... Everyday lives are affected by cardiovascular diseases. Some, not just affected but lost. Take a moment and a save a life. Donate to an organization that works in favor of these people. Here's a site in which you can donate to save a soul. I hope this presentation gave you more information about cardiovascular diseases and technology used to save people affected by it and I hope its enough to make you donate a bit to help one in need. After all, technology only gets more expensive as it gets better. Check out https://donate.americanheart.org/ecommerce/aha/aha_index.jsp (The American Heart Association) and wipe away a tear. Delay what people think to be the inevitable and show them the light to a new day. Make someone smile once again! Cardiovascular Diseases. Spriha. 8-5.
