Cardiology is a part of internal medicine that deals with the prevention and treatment of heart and blood vessel diseases.
Unfortunately, more and more research shows that the mortality rate from cardiovascular diseases are increasing:
- Due to inadequate lifestyle
- Too high stress levels
- Too little sleep
- Inadequate nutrition
- Insufficient physical movement
Although, the mitigating circumstance is that by changing all of the above, many cardiovascular diseases can be prevented. We also benefit from regular heart examinations, which can indicate the existence of a possible problem.
Common heart diseases involve:
- Ischemic heart disease (Angina pectoris and Acute myocardial infarction)
- Heart rhythm disorders
- Arterial hypotension
- Arterial hypertension
