The number of heart diseases cases in our time is progressively increasing. The heart particularly often suffers from unhealthy diet, pressure fluctuations, psycho-emotional stress.
The first signs of a heart disease are pain in the heart, a weak rapid pulse, shortness of breath with little physical exertion, apathy, bad mood, irritability, depression, sleep disorders, palpitations, premature aging, premature fatigue, etc.
The presence of a heart disease means that the heart and circulation work abnormally. If you have a heart disease, you are at risk of a heart attack, congestive heart failure, sudden cardiac arrest, angina (chest pain), or abnormal heart rhythm. Violations of myocardial blood supply and metabolism are the main causes of most common heart problems: coronary heart disease, strokes, myocardial infarction, etc.
That is why physicians widely use the drugs that influence the basic pathogenetic links of these diseases, including agents that improve coronary blood flow, reduce the load on the myocardium, lower the heart demand in oxygen, improve the occurred metabolic processes. With regard to the widespread use of such remedies in angina, they have been called antianginal drugs (from angina pectoris).
The main clinical forms of the heart problems include angina, myocardial infarction and coronarogenic (atherosclerotic) cardiosclerosis; the first two are acute, and cardiosclerosis is a chronic form of the disease. They occur in patients as isolated as in combinations, including those with various complications and their after-effects (heart failure, rhythm disturbances, intracardiac conduction disorders, thromboembolism, etc.).
