What Causes Cardiac Diseases?
The following factors are the leading cause of cardiac disease
- Congenital heart disorders
- Diseases affecting the coronary artery
- Smoking tobacco
- Drinking alcohol
- Usage of narcotics for recreational purposes
- Prolonged stress
The most common risks as a result of cardiac disease are:
- Heart Failure
In heart failure, the heart is unable to pump adequate supply of blood to fully maintain the body’s vital functions. This is often a result of heart diseases such as cardiomyopathy, congenital defects, and infections.
- Heart Attack
A heart attack happens when a blood clot blocks the passage of a blood vessel connected to heart tissue and results in long-term damage to heart tissue.
A stroke occurs due to narrowing of arteries connected to the brain, drastically constricting blood supply. Strokes can be fatal and can cause irreversible damage to the brain.
