Cardiovascular diseases comprise the most prevalent serious disorders worldwide and are a rapidly growing problem in developing nations. Nonetheless, cardiovascular diseases remain the most common causes of death and approximately one fourth of these deaths are sudden, The symptoms caused by cardiovascular disease result most commonly from myocardial ischemia and manifest most frequently as chest pain or chest discomfort. Although chest pain is a cardinal manifestation of myocardial ischemia it may result from variety of non-cardiac and cardiac causes other than myocardial ischemia. Whether heart disease is responsible for this symptom, it can be determined only by carrying out a careful clinical examination supplemented by non-invasive investigations like electrocardiography at rest or during exercise, echocardiography, x-ray and other forms of myocardial imaging, followed by blood tests to assess risk e.g. lipid profile or cardiac function e.g. cardiac biomarkers. This will not only help in establishing a correct and complete cardiac diagnosis but will also play an important role in deciding the management strategy for a patient with symptom of chest pain. This will help in eliminating the risk factors, preventing the progress of disease and managing the acute state thus preventing the risk of sudden death or morbidity due to myocardial ischemia. This course is prepared on Homoeopathy in cardiovascular diseases.
