King (or Queen) of compassion
In a way the heart is like a benevolent monarch. All its life, the sincere organ gives life blood to all the other organs of the body. If it stops, its dependent organs will suffer and eventually die. But what about blood supply to the emperor himself ? It too needs blood, which it has to get from the coronary arteries. When these coronary arteries are narrowed and the heart gets inadequate blood, it is a serious disease process, called Coronary Artery Disease (CAD).Narrowed coronaries trigger chest pain, called ‘Angina’. When the coronary arteries are completely blocked it is a life-threatening situation, and is called a ‘Heart Attack’. Let us take a look at various diseases of the heart, their causes and treatment.
