Cardiovascular Disease. In CVD was the underlying cause of death inof the approximately million total deaths in the U.S., and adults aged ≥65 years accounted for 82% of all deaths attributable to CVD (Figure 1).In terms of morbidity, an estimated 80 million Americans have at least one form of CVD, and nearly one-half of these are aged ≥60 years [], reflecting a marked Cited by: Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) including coronary artery disease, stroke, heart failure, peripheral arterial disease, and other CVD manifestations comprise the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide.

Key risk factors, including hypertension, cigarette smoking, elevated cholesterol, elevated glucose levels/diabetes, obesity, and physical inactivity comprise the top six leading. Geographical Pathology and Epidemiology.

The investigation of geographical differences has always been a mainstay of epidemiological research. 10 A conference of the International Society of Geographical Pathology on the subject of cardiovascular diseases was held in the Netherlands in The proceedings contain information on the frequency of atherosclerotic lesions in a number of by: Heart attack (ischaemic heart disease or coronary heart disease) as one of a group of cardiovascular diseases, is one of the main causes of death (over 30 million/year) in the developed and developing world.

The dual aim of this book is to review the well-established risk factors in CHD and to look forward to disease prevention, equipped with lessons from the past.4/5(3).

The structure and organization of the book reflects our course series in the Epidemiology of Aging starting with the broad issues of demography and methodology, and then addressing specific health. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels.

CVD includes coronary artery diseases (CAD) such as angina and myocardial infarction (commonly known as a heart attack). Other CVDs include stroke, heart failure, hypertensive heart disease, rheumatic heart disease, cardiomyopathy, abnormal heart rhythms, congenital heart disease, valvular heart Specialty: Cardiology.

3. Epidemiological studies. Molecular genetics and advanced statistical methods, used for the study of heart diseases and proteomics methods can lead to potential biomarkers that can identify risk of CVDs, which in turn, can improve the prediction of acute cardiovascular events ().Pharmacogenetics can be useful in the development of more effective medications, and the management of CVD in Cited by: Epidemiology in the Elderly with Heart Disease Epidemiology in the Elderly with Heart Disease Public health promotes healthy living for each community through epidemiology.

Disease prevention and control is the common goal of epidemiology, nursing practice, and public health. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death and disease burden in Australia.

The number of people living with cardiovascular disease is increasing due to factors including population ageing and improved treatments that have resulted in people living longer with CVD. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a collective term for diseases.

The widely accepted definition of epidemiology is “the study of the distribution and determinants of health-related states or events in specified populations, and the application of this study to the control of health problems” [].The overarching aim of epidemiology is to improve the control of disease through both prevention and treatment that will decrease morbidity and mortality due to Author: Joshua Chadwick Jayaraj, Karapet Davatyan, S.S.
