Transcript of Human Anatomy- Heart Disease

Treatment What is Heart Disease? Heart disease occurs when the coronary arteries narrow or block up the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart itself. It can include conditions affecting the heart, such as coronary heart disease, heart attack, congestive heart failure, and congenital heart disease.
Fatty deposits, or plaques, cling to the artery walls and can clog the arteries, making it more likely that a blood clot will form.
A heart attack occurs when a blood clot blocks one of the arteries of the heart. This prevents the flow of blood, cuts off the oxygen supply to the heart and damages or kills the heart cells. Prevention To prevent heart disease you can:
Control your blood pressure
Lower your cholesterol
Don't smoke
Maintain a healthy weight and get enough exercise About 600,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year–that’s 1 in every 4 deaths.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. More than half of the deaths due to heart disease in 2009 were in men.
Coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease, killing more than 385,000 people annually.
Every year about 715,000 Americans have a heart attack. Of these, 525,000 are a first heart attack and 190,000 happen in people who have already had a heart attack.
Coronary heart disease alone costs the United States $108.9 billion each year. This total includes the cost of health care services, medications, and lost productivity.
According to the American Heart Association, the cardiovascular disease death rate among African Americans is 34 percent higher than for the overall U.S. population.
According to the Women’s Heart Foundation, African American women ages 55 to 64 are twice as likely as caucasian women to have a heart attack and 35 percent more likely to suffer from coronary artery disease. Healthy Heart The Muscular System- Heart Disease Human Anatomy Work Cited Some foods increase the risk of coronary heart disease, others may protect against it. Uncontrolled diabetes can contribute to coronary heart disease. Oily fish, fruit and vegetables, garlic, some oils including olive oil, fiber from wholegrain cereals, legumes and soy, nuts and seeds and tea may help protect against the disease. A small intake of alcohol is associated with a reduced risk of heart disease in some people. Heart Affected with the Disease All About Ar'eyona I would like to have a multitude of careers but for now, I plan on being a pediatrician (not certain) as my career. Typically, you need to take four years of college,
four years of medical school, one year of a Pediatrics internship, and two years of a Pediatrics residency.

Grand Valley State University has a college of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Completed undergraduate application for admission must include:
Official high school transcript
Official results of the ACT or SAT test
A $30.00 non-refundable application fee
Any necessary supporting documentation

For Albion College, the general application guidelines are: Official high school transcript and Scores on the ACT and/or SAT.

I have about 6 hours of community service currently. Well, I've signed up for AP English, I've gotten my assignment and I've applied for classes at Maccomb Community College and I am waiting to hear back. I'm quite sure I will graduate on time. I've been preparing to do it for three years. Statistics Although there is no cure for coronary heart disease, some medicines can help protect you from heart attack, heart failure, or stroke.

If neccessary, some common surgeries can be done such as:
Minimally invasive coronary bypass
Off-pump bypass surgery
Standard coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)

Your doctor may ask you to take one or several medicines, such as:

Low-dose aspirin or drugs that keep platelets in the blood from sticking together.
Medicines to lower your cholesterol level.
Medicine that helps reduce heart rate and blood pressure, such as beta-blockers.
Medicines to prevent your blood from clotting, such as warfarin.
Other medicines for high blood pressure or diabetes. Graphs and Charts on Heart Disease 1.
