    • BLOOD PRESSURE – lateral pressure exerted by the moving column of blood at the arterioles.
    • This is the force with which the heart pumps blood through the areteries and allows the blood to reach various parts of the body.
    • CONTRACTION PRESSURE- SYSTOLIC BP
    • RELAXATION PRESSURE- DIASTOLIC BP.
    • The normal blood pressure ranges 100-140/60-90 mmHg.

  • 34. DISEASES OF THE HEART
    • The diseases and conditions affecting the heart are collectively known as heart disease.
    • The heart consists of a muscle that pumps blood, arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle, and valves that ensure that the blood within the heart is pumped in the correct direction.
    • Problems can arise in any of these areas.
    • Like cardiovascular disease, heart disease is a term that's somewhat loose and broad, and it's often used that way.
  • 35. Heart disease is an umbrella term for a number of different diseases which affect the heart. The most common heart diseases are:
    • Coronary artery disease.
    • Coronary heart disease.
    • Ischaemic heart disease.
    • Cardiovascular disease
    • Pulmonary heart disease.
    • Hereditary heart disease.
    • Hypertensive heart disease.
    • Inflammatory heart disease.
    • Valvular heart disease.
    • Pericardial disease
    • Congenital heart disease
    • Heart failure
  • 36. HEART SCANS
    • Electrocardiogram (ECG)
    • Nuclear stress testing
    • Echocardiogram (ECHO)
    • Coronary angiogram
    • CT scan
    • PET/CT scan
    • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

  • 38. SPECIFIC PRACTICE
    • Millions of people in the world suffer from the diseases of the heart and blood vessels.
    • The heart, which is muscular pump, keeps the blood circulation of blood going.
    • But when there is a break down of this complicated mechanism, blood supply to a part of the body may be affected leading to what is known as heart attack.
    • But with yoga the cardiovascular diseases can be cured. Diseases that can be cured are:
    • Arteriosclerosis - hardening of arteries
    • Coronary Thrombosis - sudden blocking of one of the arteries.
  • 39.
    • Yoga helps to cope with this stress so that they do not need to depend on smoking or eating unhealthy food.
    • It also helps to find contentment from within.
    • Smoking should be completely stopped as it constricts the arteries.
  • 40.
    • For daily practice :
    • Keep relaxed and free from anxiety , nervousness, tension and restlessness.
    • Meditation - has been scientifically proven to be beneficial for hypertensive people.
    • Ujjayi Pranayama - can be done while lying for about 3-4 minutes, if the blood pressure rises very high.
    • Nadi Shodak Pranayama - It can be done 10 times.
  • 41.
    • General considerations : Consultation with patient’s doctor is advisable because the limitation may differ substantially according to various heart diseases and their stages. Some heart abnormalities require no or little restraint.
    • Contraindications : No practices with internal breath retention. No physically demanding physical exercises exceeding trainee’s tolerance. Practices like Agnisara Dhauti or Shankha Prakshalana may be too risky even in persons with heart problems whose condition is fairly good.
    • Recommendations : Patients shortly after myocardial infarction are advised to practice Savasana, full yoga breath and later some easy Pavanmuktasanasa, in prone position.
  • 42.
    • Recommended Asana :
    • Suryanamaskara (Sun salutation) - activates the whole body.
    • Pavanmuktasana (Relieving the flatus) - wind reliever, corrects malfunctioning of the abdomen. Make 4-6 rounds.
    • Uttanpadasana (Raising the legs) - Helps reduce fat.
    • Santulanasana - normalizes blood circulation.
    • Shavasana (Corpse pose) - should be done twice or thrice daily as it normalizes the blood pressure.
