Cardiovascular disorders are a group of diseases that affect the heart and blood vessels. They are the leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for over 17.9 million deaths in 2019.

The most common cardiovascular disorders are:

  • Coronary heart disease (CHD): This is the most common type of heart disease and occurs when the arteries that supply blood to the heart become narrowed or blocked.
  • Stroke: This occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted, causing damage to brain cells.
  • Heart failure: This occurs when the heart is unable to pump blood effectively enough to meet the body's needs.
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure): This is a condition in which the blood pressure is too high.
  • Arrhythmia: This is a condition in which the heart beats too fast, too slow, or irregularly.

Cardiovascular disorders are often caused by a combination of factors, including:

  • Age: The risk of cardiovascular disease increases with age.
  • Gender: Men are more likely to develop cardiovascular disease than women.
  • Family history: If you have a family history of cardiovascular disease, you are more likely to develop it yourself.
  • Smoking: Smoking is one of the leading causes of cardiovascular disease.
  • High blood pressure: High blood pressure can damage the arteries and increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.
  • High cholesterol: High cholesterol can build up in the arteries and block blood flow.
  • Diabetes: Diabetes can damage the blood vessels and increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.
  • Obesity: Obesity can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease by raising blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels.
  • Physical inactivity: Physical inactivity can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease by raising blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels.

The good news is that most cardiovascular disorders can be prevented or managed by making healthy lifestyle choices, such as:

  • Eating a healthy diet
  • Getting regular exercise
  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Quitting smoking
  • Managing your blood pressure
  • Managing your cholesterol
  • Managing your diabetes
  • Reducing stress

If you have any risk factors for cardiovascular disease, it is important to talk to your doctor about ways to reduce your risk.

Cardiovascular disorders refer to conditions that involve narrowed or blocked blood vessels that can lead to a heart attack, chest pain (angina), or stroke. Other heart conditions, such as those that affect your heart's muscle, valves or rhythm, also are considered forms of heart disease. There are many types of cardiovascular disorders including: 1. Coronary Artery Disease (CAD): This is the most common type of heart disease and occurs when the coronary arteries become hardened and narrowed due to the buildup of plaque on the inner walls or lining of the arteries (atherosclerosis). This can cause decreased blood flow, which can damage the heart muscle leading to a heart attack. 2. Heart Failure: This is a condition where the heart is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body's needs. It does not mean that the heart has stopped working, but rather it is not working as efficiently as it should. 3. Arrhythmia: This refers to an irregular heartbeat. There are several types of arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, and bradycardia among others. 4. Heart Valve Disease: The human heart has four valves and any one of them can develop problems leading to underperformance in pumping blood. 5. Congenital Heart Disease: These are problems with the heart's structure that are present at birth. They may involve the interior walls of the heart, the valves inside the heart, or the arteries and veins that carry blood to the heart or out to the body. 6. Peripheral Arterial Disease: This happens when there's a buildup of fats and cholesterol in your artery walls, which limits blood flow to your limbs. 7. Stroke: A stroke occurs when there is an interruption of blood supply to part of your brain due to a blocked or burst blood vessel. Risk factors for cardiovascular diseases include age, sex, family history, smoking, poor diet, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol levels, diabetes, obesity, physical inactivity, and excessive alcohol use. Prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disorders involve lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet, regular exercise, quitting smoking, controlling high blood pressure and diabetes, and taking prescribed medication as directed. In some cases, surgical procedures may be necessary.
