When this occur some people may suffer from Dementia or serious other brain injuries. The damage to the organs can be deadly leading in death because of the consummation of alcohol in a person’s body. Alcohol can lead to many diseases amongst the organs such as kidney failure, liver disease, and etc. The heart which is a person’s strongest organ is also affected by alcohol. Depending on the amount of alcohol intake at a time the heart rate can began to increase within a nick of time.
At first, the decreased blood flow may not cause any coronary artery disease symptoms. As the plaques continue to build up in your coronary arteries, however, you may develop coronary artery disease symptoms. Chest pain or angina is when you feel pr... ... middle of paper ... ...e 610,000 are a first heart attack and 325,000 are a repeat heart attack. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for American men and women, accounting for 1 out of every 4 deaths each year. Every 34 seconds someone has a heart attack and each minute someone dies from a heart disease-related event.
Stroke Stroke is a commonly known disease that is often fatal. This cellular disease occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted by either a blood clot halting the progress of blood cells in an artery, called an Ischemic stroke, or a blood vessel in the brain bursting or leaking causing internal bleeding in the brain, called a hemorrhagic stroke. When this happens, brain cells are deprived of oxygen and nutrients because the blood cells carrying these essential things are stopped, causing them to die. When the cells in the brain die, sensation or movement in a limb might be cut off and may limit an organism’s abilities. A person with stroke is affected depending on where in the brain the stroke occurs.
A heart attack can happen when there is a tear in the plaque, this triggers blood platelets and other substances start to form a blood clot at the site that blocks blood from being able to flow to the heart. This is the most frequent cause of heart attack. A slow buildup of plaque may narrow one of the coronary arteries so that it is almost blocked. The cause of heart attack is not always identified. Heart attacks can occur at anytime; when you are asleep or resting, after a sudden increase in physical activity, after sudden, severe emotional or physical stress, including illness.
It can cause loss of speech, memory, and movement and in more serious cases even paralysis to a side of your body (association, 2014). Figure 2 the brain which is affected by a stroke (WebMD , 2005) What does the health condition include? A stroke includes the deterioration of brain cells as the brain cells die during a stroke which can cause brain damage and disability (association, 2014). There are two types of strokes Ischemic and Haemorrhagic stroke. The Ischemic stroke occurs when an artery in the brain becomes clotted due to a build-up of plaque or fatty deposits on the artery walls.
What Happens During a Stroke? (http://www.cdc.gov/stroke/about.htm) If something happens to interrupt the flow of blood, brain cells start to die within minutes because they can’t get oxygen. This is called a stroke. Sudden bleeding in the brain also can cause a stroke if it damages brain cells. A stroke can cause lasting brain damage, long-term disability, or even death.
Stroke, also known as brain attack or cerebrovascular accident, occurs when the blood flow to an area of the brain is interrupted resulting in some degree of permanent neurological damage (Barrett et al., 2013) .Two major brain damage mechanisms are ischemic and haemorrhagic (Barrett et al., 2013, which is briefly explained at the start of the booklet. Ischaemic is because the lack of blood and hence oxygen to an area of the brain, while haemorrhagic is bleeding from a burst or leaking blood vessel in the brain(Deb et al., 2010). In either, destructive biochemical substances released from a variety of sources play an important role in tissue destruction. Both are related by cerebral perfusions which affect cerebrovascular reactivity and thrombosis (Macintosh, et al., 2011). It normally regulates cerebral blood flow and abnormalities of cerebrovascular function in pathophysiologic states.
Myocardial infarction claims the lives of too many Americans. “About 790,000 people in the US have heart attacks each year. Of those, about 114,000 will die” (American Heart Association, 2017). There are a number of factors that contribute to the probability of having myocardial infarction. However, by taking the correct measures the chance of heart attack can be substantially minimized.
This total includes the cost of health care services, medications, and lost productivity. “Coronary artery disease. (2013) Texas Heart Institute” Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the US, affecting more than 13 million Americans. Coronary heart disease is a major health issue that should be treated right away.
Cardiovascular disease is also known as heart attack, is a very common disease in the world, especially in the United States. As a fact, cardiovascular disease killed about 17 million people in the world every year. Most of them are caused by heart attacks and strokes. Cardiovascular disease can be caused by tobacco consumption and also smoking, it is also raises the risk of strokes. Another thing that can cause it is physical inactivity and also bad or unhealthy diet, this will lead too, which is a very important risk factors that will augment a person risks to cardiovascular disease.
