Cardiovascular

Cardiovascular is a term used to describe the heart and blood vessels as a unified system in the body. The cardiovascular system delivers the nutrients such as oxygen and energy compounds to tissues and also removes waste products from tissues and helps regulate body temperature by moving blood flow to and away from the skin.

The American Heart Association classifies major cardiovascular disease categories to include high blood pressure, coronary heart disease (myocardial infarction and angina pectoris), stroke, congenital cardiovascular defects, and congestive heart failure.

These problems are most commonly due to consequences of arterial disease, atherosclerosis, atheroma, but also can be related to infection, valvular, and clotting problems.

Cardiovascular disease includes coronary heart disease, stroke, congestive heart failure, peripheral vascular disease, congenital heart disease, endocarditis, and many other conditions.

In Western countries about 50% of deaths can be attributed to cardiovascular disease, ischaemic heart disease being the main pathology.

In the less developed world rheumatic heart disease is still a significant killer.
Hypertension and congenital heart disease are important causes of cardiovascular mortality worldwide.
