Introduction

Fear of cardiovascular disease is a common concern among individuals, as it is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. This guide aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the condition, its symptoms, causes, diagnostic steps, possible interventions, and lifestyle modifications that can help manage and prevent cardiovascular disease.

Codes

– ICPC-2 Code: K27 Fear cardiovascular disease other
– ICD-10 Code: Z71.1 Person with feared complaint in whom no diagnosis is made

Symptoms

  • Chest pain or discomfort: This may be experienced as a squeezing, pressure, or tightness in the chest.
  • Shortness of breath: Difficulty breathing or feeling breathless, especially during physical activity.
  • Fatigue: Feeling tired or exhausted even with minimal exertion.
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness: Feeling faint or experiencing a spinning sensation.
  • Palpitations: Sensation of a rapid or irregular heartbeat.
  • Swelling in the legs, ankles, or feet: Fluid retention leading to swelling in the lower extremities.
  • Nausea or vomiting: Feeling sick to the stomach or vomiting without any apparent cause.
  • Sweating: Excessive sweating, especially during periods of rest or minimal activity.

Causes

  • High blood pressure: Increased pressure in the arteries can lead to damage and narrowing of blood vessels.
  • High cholesterol: Elevated levels of cholesterol can contribute to the formation of plaque in the arteries.
  • Smoking: Tobacco smoke contains harmful chemicals that can damage blood vessels and increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.
  • Diabetes: Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to damage to blood vessels and increase the risk of cardiovascular complications.
  • Obesity: Excess body weight puts additional strain on the heart and blood vessels.
  • Sedentary lifestyle: Lack of physical activity can contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease.
  • Family history: Having a close relative with a history of cardiovascular disease increases the risk.
  • Age: The risk of cardiovascular disease increases with age.
  • Gender: Men are generally at a higher risk of cardiovascular disease compared to women.
  • Stress: Chronic stress can contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease.

Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Gather information about the patient’s risk factors, such as smoking, family history, and medical conditions like diabetes or hypertension.
  • Assess the patient’s symptoms, including chest pain, shortness of breath, and fatigue.
  • Inquire about any previous cardiovascular events or interventions.
  • Evaluate the patient’s lifestyle habits, including diet and exercise.

Physical Examination

  • Measure blood pressure to assess for hypertension.
  • Auscultate the heart for abnormal sounds or murmurs.
  • Palpate peripheral pulses to assess for any abnormalities.
  • Examine the legs and ankles for signs of swelling or edema.
  • Assess the patient’s overall appearance and signs of distress.

Laboratory Tests

  • Lipid profile: Measures the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood.
  • Fasting blood glucose: Assesses for diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance.
  • Complete blood count: Checks for anemia or other blood abnormalities.
  • C-reactive protein: Measures inflammation in the body, which can be indicative of cardiovascular disease.
  • Thyroid function tests: Evaluates thyroid hormone levels, as imbalances can contribute to cardiovascular disease.

Diagnostic Imaging

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG): Records the electrical activity of the heart to detect any abnormalities.
  • Echocardiogram: Uses sound waves to create images of the heart and assess its structure and function.
  • Stress test: Evaluates the heart’s response to physical activity or medication-induced stress.
  • Coronary angiography: Invasive procedure that uses contrast dye and X-rays to visualize the coronary arteries.
  • CT scan or MRI: Provides detailed images of the heart and blood vessels to assess for any abnormalities.

Other Tests

  • Cardiac catheterization: Invasive procedure to measure pressures within the heart and assess for blockages.
  • Holter monitor: Portable device that records the heart’s electrical activity over a 24-hour period.
  • Genetic testing: Identifies specific genetic mutations that may increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor the patient’s progress and adjust treatment as needed.
  • Provide education on lifestyle modifications, medication adherence, and symptom recognition.
  • Encourage the patient to seek immediate medical attention if they experience worsening symptoms or new symptoms.

Possible Interventions

Traditional Interventions

Medications:

Top 5 drugs for cardiovascular disease:

  1. Statins (e.g., Atorvastatin, Simvastatin, Rosuvastatin):
