What Causes Cardiac Diseases?
The following factors are the leading cause of cardiac disease
The most common risks as a result of cardiac disease are:
In heart failure, the heart is unable to pump adequate supply of blood to fully maintain the body’s vital functions. This is often a result of heart diseases such as cardiomyopathy, congenital defects, and infections.
A heart attack happens when a blood clot blocks the passage of a blood vessel connected to heart tissue and results in long-term damage to heart tissue.
A stroke occurs due to narrowing of arteries connected to the brain, drastically constricting blood supply. Strokes can be fatal and can cause irreversible damage to the brain.
Heart disease in babies is known to affect one in every 100 babies. The term Congenital Heart Defect or CHD is used to describe a range of birth defects that prevent the heart from functioning normally. Babies diagnosed with CHD often require serious treatment.
A heart murmur refers to a swishing or whooshing sound made by the heart. This sound can be heard through a cardiologist’s stethoscope and is different from the usual sound of your heartbeat.
Parents often have many questions after receiving a diagnosis of their child’s congenital heart defect (CHD). It can be a confusing and stressful time, and it is, therefore, natural to discuss these concerns with your cardiology doctors in Dubai.
