Heart Failure Journals
Heart attacks results coronary artery disease. In coronary artery disease, the arteries those supply blood to the heart become choked with fatty deposits. The deposits are generally called as plaques, which narrows and blocks arteries. This condition is generally called as atherosclerosis. When pieces of plaque break, clots form in blood which blocks flow of blood to heart. When that happens, the heart muscle does not get the oxygen and nutrients that it needs, and parts of the heart may become damaged or die. This is a heart attack, also known as myocardial infarction. The causes for heart attack and stroke are similar, but slightly different. Both will have the same risk factors, such as family history, obesity, smoking,blood pressure, high cholesterol content, diabetes, etc. Men tend to have more heart attacks. More men have strokes than women, women in all age groups are more likely to die from stroke. African-Americans have higher rates of CAD and more severe high blood pressure than whites. CAD is also more prominent in Mexican-Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Pacific Islanders, in part because of higher rates of obesity and diabetes, two other common risk factors for both heart attack and stroke. Another risk factor for stroke is a transient ischemic attack (TIA), also called a ""mini-stroke. Symptoms of heart failure include is extreme tiredness and breathlessness on exertion. This happens because of a lack of blood getting from the heart to the muscles. The other symptoms of heart failure tend to differ depending upon which side of the heart has been affected. Heart failure on the left side can make you breathless because of a fluid buildup on the lungs. International Journal of Cardiovascular Research emerges as a best indexed journal with impact factor compared to other competitive journals focusing on heart failure by bringing up the recent research to global scientific community through its publications. The papers submitted are undergone through perfect plagiarism checks, later peer reviewed by the expert group and published after through revisions.
