We all know that a heart is the most important organ in our heart and should be healthy to nourish and keep our whole body secure. What if our heart is in danger or is not working properly? There is one source for this known as coronary artery disease also known as atherosclerosis. The coronary artery disease is a type of disease where the inside of a coronary artery gets a buildup of plaque. The coronary artery is a artery which brings oxygenated blood to the heart for its own purpose. Your heart muscle needs its own supply of blood because, like the rest of your body, it needs oxygen and other nutrients to stay healthy. For this reason, your heart pumps oxygen-rich blood to its own muscle through your coronary arteries.Every organ needs blood for their own nutrition. The plaque is made up of cholesterol deposits. In this disease the arteries will narrow down and the blood flow speed will decrease and oxygen too.
This disease has an impact on individuals and society. This disease can cause an individual to decrease his physical work which may include many things he loves, which certainly he cannot do now. When this disease takes place the white blood cell is sent to clean up the plaque but there is 80% that the wbc is damaged by the plaque. Wbc has nucleus which have chromosomes in it and if a wbc is damages it can impact the dna and chromosomes. This disease also can cause a ischemic stroke, Most ischemic strokes are caused by atherosclerosis, which is also called hardening of the arteries. Over time, it could be completely blocked
There are certain solution to this disease. One solution is Electrocardiogram (ECG). An electrocardiogram records electrical signals as they travel through your heart. An ECG can often reveal evidence of a previous heart attack or one that’s in progress.In other cases, Holter monitoring may be recommended. With this type of ECG, you wear a portable monitor for 24 hours as you go about your normal activities. Certain abnormalities may indicate inadequate blood flow to your heart.
Through this disease the whole circulatory system could be affected. The arteries that give blood to the heart will not be able to give enough at a certain time and through this the hearts nutrition will be at risk, if the heart doesn’t get enough blood how will it even pump at an irregular rate certain times.
Heart bypass surgery, or coronary artery bypass surgery, is used to replace damaged arteries that supply blood to your heart muscle. A surgeon uses blood vessels taken from another area of your body to repair the damaged arteries.
Considering the economic implication the coronary artery bypass surgery costs to much but also is certainly needed to live your life. In private hospitals, bypass surgery costs Rs.1.5 lakh to Rs.2.25 lakh. Considering the social implication the person cannot socialize that much as the heart is not healthy. The person will not able to live his life to the fullest.
Considering the political implication the doctors could invent a new process which is cheap and very definite. This will help the people to be out of risk for their disease.
