What is Coronary Heart Disease

on this day we will give an explanation of coronary heart disease is our post from our previous post entitled Cononary Treat Heart Disease with Mangosteen Skin

What is it Coronary Heart Disease? 
coronary heart disease is a condition in which the heart can not work as it should, because the heart muscle is damaged by lack of oxygen. Coronary Heart Disease was initially caused by a buildup of fat in the walls of the blood vessels of the heart (coronary arteries), and this is gradually followed by various processes such as accumulation of connective tissue, blood clots, etc.., All of which will narrow or clog blood vessels the. This will result in the area of heart muscle is deprived of blood flow and can cause a variety of quite serious consequences, of angina pectoris (chest pain) to heart infarction, which is known in the community with a heart attack that can lead to sudden death.

What are the causes of Coronary Heart Disease?

The main cause of CHD is a narrowing of blood vessels due to fatty buildup, known as atherosclerosis.

What are the symptoms?

chest pain
shortness of breath
Heart Attack

How is diagnosis?

The doctor will ask about the patient's medical history of coronary heart disease, and then perform a physical examination and routine blood tests. Some checks can be performed to detect the presence of coronary heart disease, among others:
Electrocardiographic (ECG)
, The EKG can be known the possibility of abnormalities in the heart with a 40% accuracy rate.
, Using sound waves to produce images of the heart. During this process, the doctor can determine whether all parts of the heart wall contribute to normal heart pumping activity. Weak moving parts may have been damaged during a heart attack or receive too little oxygen. This may indicate coronary artery or a variety of other conditions.
Coronary catheterization
, To see the blood flow through the heart, the doctor may inject a special dye into a vein (intravenous). This is known as an angiogram. Dye is injected into the arteries of the heart through a long pipe, thin, flexible (catheter) is passed through an artery, usually in the legs, to the heart arteries. Dye spots marking the narrowing and blockage of the X-ray images.

If the patients examined had a blockage that requires treatment, the balloon can be pushed through the catheter and inflated to improve blood flow in the heart.

For early detection of Coronary Heart Disease can be examined:

Panel Risk of Coronary Heart Disease / Stroke,
which consists of the examination

Total cholesterol
HDL cholesterol
LDL cholesterol

Glucose 2 hours PP
Anti-oxidant status
ACA (IgG, IgM)

Type of drugs given:

Cholesterol-modifying drugs
beta blockers
Inhibitors of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE)
Calcium channel blockers

Prevention can be done

stop smoking
Lowering blood pressure
Losing weight
Avoiding fatty foods

The impact of the Coronary Heart Disease

This disease can cause chest pain (angina), arising after the heavy work or emotional tension, while increasing cardiac oxygen demand can not be met due to narrowing of the coronary arteries.
