High blood pressure is a condition where the blood flowing through your arteries exerts excessive pressure on the artery walls, causing them to thicken and become stiff. This increased pressure puts a strain on the heart, making it work harder to pump blood through the body. Over time, this can lead to damage to the heart, blood vessels, and other organs, increasing the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and other cardiovascular problems.
Angina is a type of chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart. It usually occurs during physical exertion or emotional stress and is often described as a squeezing, tight, or heavy sensation in the chest. Treatment for angina may include lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking, eating a healthy diet, and exercising regularly, as well as medications like nitroglycerin, beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, and statins.
Heart failure is a condition where the heart is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body's needs. It can be caused by various factors, including high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, and heart valve problems. Symptoms of heart failure may include shortness of breath, fatigue, swelling in the legs and feet, rapid or irregular heartbeat, and coughing or wheezing.
A heart attack occurs when blood flow to the heart is blocked, usually by a blood clot. This can cause damage to the heart muscle, and in severe cases, it can be life-threatening. Warning signs of a heart attack may include chest pain or discomfort, pain or discomfort in the arms, back, neck, jaw, or stomach, shortness of breath, sweating, nausea, or lightheadedness.
Atrial fibrillation is a condition where the heart's upper chambers beat irregularly, causing an irregular heartbeat. It can increase the risk of stroke, heart failure, and other heart-related complications. Treatment for atrial fibrillation may include medications to control heart rate and rhythm, blood thinners to reduce the risk of blood clots, and procedures like cardioversion, catheter ablation, or surgery in some cases.
