  • Heart Attack

    Heart attack occurs when there is a blockade of blood flow to the heart and it is a medical emergency. It is also called as acute myocardial infarction. One of the most causes of heart attack is atherosclerosis which prevents blood from getting to the heart muscle. The blockade is formed in heart attack is either due to plaque or fat, cholesterol a...

  • Hypertension

    Hypertension is defined as high blood pressure which is a long term force of blood against the artery walls. Blood pressure is determined both by the amount of resistance to blood flow in arteries and the amount of blood that heart pumps. If more amount of blood is pumped it narrows the arteries, high blood pressure. Blood pressure is represented b...

  • Myocardial Ischemia

    Ischemia restricts the blood supply to the tissues due to damage or dysfunction of tissue causing shortage of oxygen which is needed for cellular metabolism. If damage occurs to the cardiac muscle it is called as Myocardial Ischemia or Cardiac Ischemia. It reduces the blood flow to the heart by partial or complete blockade of coronary arteries. It ...

  • Arteritis

    Arteritis is characterized by inflammation in the walls of arteries. It is caused by damage to blood vessels which reduces blood flow to the organs. It occurs either due to infection or autoimmune response. Major types of arteritis include:Takayasu arteritis: It is an inflammatory disease effects mainly on large vessels such as aorta and its branch...

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Cardiomyopathy is a disease of heart muscle. The muscle becomes enlarged, thick and rigid. It is either acquired or hereditary. If the disease worsens the heart becomes weaker and it is unable to pump blood throughout the body and it even causes arrhythmias. The main types of cardiomyopathy are:Dilated CardiomyopathyHypertropic CardiomyopathyArryth...

  • Pacemaker

    Pacemaker is a small device which uses electrical pulses to prompt the heart to beat at a normal rate. It is placed in the chest or abdomen to control abnormal heart rhythms. Most common reasons for pacemaker recommendation are bradycardia and heart block. Bradycardia is a type of arrhythmia in which the heart beats slower than normal. Heart block ...

  • Cardiac Arrest

    Cardiac arrest is a serious heart condition. It is an abrupt loss of blood flow to the heart. It is triggered by an electrical malfunction in the heart which causes arrhythmia. With its pumping action disrupted, the heart cannot pump blood to brain, lungs and the person lose consciousness and the pulse declines. If the victim does not receive treat...

  • Congenital Heart Defect

    Congenital is a defect in the structure of heart. It is a type of birth defect. The defect involves the arteries, veins, valves of heart, wall of the heart. The causes of congenital heart diseases are genetic, environmental or a combination of both. The disease is classified as either cyanotic congenital heart disease or acyanotic congenital heart ...
