This book on “Heart Disease” provides an overview of the anatomy and development of the cardiovascular system and various types of heart diseases and their management. Coronary heart disease is the commonest cause of death in the world. Many of the factors, which place people at risk of coronary heart disease, such as physical inactivity, obesity, smoking, and a diet high in fat and salt, are avoidable. Conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and hypercholesterolemia can be considered as silent killers because these also predispose to atherosclerosis, the underlying cause of coronary heart disease, and are associated with few, if any, symptoms. The chapters of the book focus upon coronary heart diseases, its signs, symptoms, risk factors, presentations, and complications. The book reinforces important principles and improves understanding of the basic science and clinical management of coronary heart disease, from atherosclerosis to the complications of acute myocardial infarction. This book will surely enable all healthcare professionals to improve coronary heart disease prevention and care for their patients more effectively when the disease manifests clinically.
