Heart Disease Health Program
Heart disease is a broad term used to describe a range of diseases that affect your heart, and in some cases, your blood vessels. It is the most common cause of death in Ireland, accounting for 36% of all deaths. The various diseases that fall under the umbrella of heart disease include diseases of your blood vessels, such as coronary artery disease; heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias); and heart defects you’re born with (congenital heart defects).
The term “heart disease” is often used interchangeably with “cardiovascular disease” – a term that generally refers to conditions that involve narrowed or blocked blood vessels that can lead to a heart attack, chest pain (angina) or stroke. Other heart conditions, such as infections and conditions that affect your heart’s muscle, valves or beating rhythm also are considered forms of heart disease.
