  • 1.  
  • 2. What is heart disease?
    • Heart disease is a broad term used to describe a range of diseases that affect your heart.
    • The heart is the organ that pumps blood.
    • If the pumping of the heart becomes unfunctioniable vital organs will suffer.
  • 3. Heart Disease
    • There are many kinds of heart disease that can affect the heart in several ways such as
    • Myocardial infarction
    • Angina pectoris
    • Congential defects
    • Heart failure
    • stroke
  • 4. What is a myocardial infarction? A myocardial infarction is when blood supply to part of the heart is not flowing properly. Which then causes some heart cells to die.
  • 5.  
  • 6. What is Angina Pectoris?
    • An angina pectoris is chest pain. Chest pain that is due to coronary heart disease.
    • When heart muscles don’t get enough blood as it needs. This happens because one or more of the heart’s arteries is narrowed or blocked.

  • 9. Heart failure
    • The heart’s inability to pump an adequate amount of blood through the heart.
    • The blood can slow down, be blocked completely, flow in the wrong direction/wrong place.
  • 10. Stroke
    • Blood vessel that supplies blood to the brain is blocked by a blood clot.
    • Blood vessel breaks open causing blood to leak into the brain.
    • If blood flow is stopped for longer than a few seconds the brain can not get blood and oxygen. Brain cells can die, causing permanent damage.
