While hypersensitive heart disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease account for 26.2 and 23.4 percent of the total cases, respectively. According to the report, ischemic heart disease, obstructive pulmonary disease and alcoholic cardiopathy are more common in men, while hypersensitive heart disease and rheumatic heart disease are more common in women.

These experts say

Cardiologist Dr. Ravindra Bhukkar of Park Hospital says that the symptoms of heart attack are very mild. While walking, shortness of breath, sweating have started, then definitely believe that the veins of your heart have started getting blocked.

10 major causes of death

In 2019, WHO released the report of 10 causes of death in the world. In which the cause of the heart was the main one. Heart disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (long-term lung blockage), respiratory infections, neonatal diseases and problems, death from cancers of the respiratory tract, bronchi and lungs, Alzheimer’s and dementia, diarrhoea, diabetes and kidney diseases.

  • Ischemic Heart Disease: Ischemic heart disease is a condition that affects the blood supply to the heart. The blood vessels are constricted or blocked due to the deposition of cholesterol on their walls. This reduces the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the heart muscle, which is essential for the proper functioning of the heart. Because of this, the blood supply is suddenly interrupted, resulting in a heart attack.
  • Hypersensitive heart disease: The main cause of hypersensitive heart disease is considered to be high blood pressure. This causes hypertension. In such a situation, the chances of getting heart disease increase, which increases the chances of heart failure.
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a lung disease. Its symptoms are similar to asthma and bronchitis. This is chronic bronchitis in which the patient’s energy decreases, he gets tired after walking a few steps. Oxygen supply decreases due to swelling in the windpipe between the nose and the lungs. its effect

This came to the fore in the Lasante report

According to a recent study published in The Lancet, India alone accounts for a quarter of the worldwide cases of ischemic (IHD) heart disease. The main symptom of this disease is low blood supply to the heart. Ischemic heart disease is the main cause of heart failure in Indian patients.
