What is the Meaning of Cardiovascular Disease? - Heart 3

Long time ago, I myself “confused” with the words of hearts diseases, heart attacks, coronary diseases, cardiovascular diseases and other diseases relate to hearts.

I find out that cardiovascular was combination of “cardio” and vascular words:

1) Cardio means heart. The diseases relate to cardio (heart) may include:
- Congenital heart disease
- Heart failure
- Dilated cardiomyopathy
- Heart valve abnormalities
- Myocardial infarction
- Abnormal heart rythem
- Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

2) Terms of vascular diseases relate to blood vessels diseases that connect to veins and arteries in our body. Disorder could lead to health problems from severe to death.

Some vascular diseases are:
- abdominal aortic aneurysm
- stroke
- peripheral artery diseases
- arteriovenous malformation
- blood clots (pulmonary embolism)
- critical limb ischemia
- chronic venous insufficiency
- deep vein thrombosis

Cardiovascular diseases caused more than 800,000 death every year, 840,768 death in 2016. 1 die in 37 seconds due to this diseases.

Heart (cardio) disease alone is number 1 causes of death in the USA and the world. About 635,260 death due to cardiac diseases in the USA in 2016.

The fact that more men than women die due to cardiovascular diseases in young age, but after 65, both men and women are almost equally affected by diseases.


Men more smoke cigarette than women. Smoke is one of risk factors for cardiovascular diseases.
