According to the World Health Organization (WHO), coronary heart disease (CHD) is the leading cause of death, which constituted 12.2 percent (7.2 million) of deaths worldwide.

CHD is a chronic disease caused by lack of blood flow to heart muscle tissue. The main reason is a stack of continuous material in the arteries (arteriosclerosis) and narrowing of arteries associated with it. CHD patients felt the symptoms of chest pain (angina) or without symptoms (silent ischemia).

Angina (chest pain due to lack of blood flow) as a result of CHD is very influential in the quality of life of a patient. Various studies show that wind causes loss of physical functioning. Patients also experience insomnia and depression, even in men experiencing erectile dysfunction.

Moreover, risk factors such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol also extend the row of patients with cardiovascular disease. In fact, more men are suffering from heart disease than women. Then, mostly over the age of 40-50 years.

Patients who get heart attacks must get immediate handling, not more than 6-12 hours. If it is late, then it could be a life at stake. First aid that you can do is giving tromboliasis.

These drugs should be given a maximum of six hours on the first attack so that blood clots could be destroyed. Effectiveness is 70 percent. Results would be great if given in the first three hours. If in this way the patient does not also helped, can be taken other actions, ie, PCI (Percutaneous Corronary Intervension).
