a. Risk Factors of Heart Disease:

• Entering the age of 45 years for men.
• It is important for men to realize their vulnerability and take positive action to prevent any future heart disease.
• For women, entering the age of 55 years or premature menopause (as a result of the operation).
• Women began to overtake men in terms of the risk of heart disease after menopause.
• History of heart disease in the family. History of heart attack in the family is often a result of abnormal cholesterol profiles.
• Diabetes. Most diabetics die not because of increased blood sugar levels, but due to the condition of their heart complications.
• Smoking. The risk of heart disease from smoking is equivalent to 100 pounds overweight - so it is not possible to equate the two.
• High blood pressure (hypertension).
• Overweight (obesity). Central obesity (belly fat) is a form of obesity. Although all obese people tend to have an increased risk of heart disease, those with central obesity even more so.
• Lifestyle worse. Poor lifestyle is one of the root causes of heart disease - and replace it with a physical activity is one of the most radical step that can be taken.
• Stress. Many studies have shown that, when facing a tense situation, there may be life-threatening heart arithmias.

b. Symptoms of Heart Disease

Symptoms of heart disease for every ordinary person is different. Symptoms of heart disease begins with pain are unclear, vague discomfort, or a feeling of tightness in the middle chest. Sometimes, a heart disease only causes mild discomfort at all so often mistaken for indigestion, or even escape attention altogether. In this case, the only way that allows the detection of a heart disease is when the ECG should undergo screening for other reasons that may be unrelated. On the other hand, symptoms of heart disease cause the worst pain he had ever experienced - an incredible tightness or feeling stuck in your chest, throat or stomach. Can also be sweating hot or cold, painful feet and fear that the end was approaching. May also feel more comfortable when sitting than when lying down and breathing may be so crowded that can not be relaxed. Nausea and dizziness and even vomiting, even worse is when it gets collapsed and fainted.

There are several symptoms of heart disease are more specific, such as:

• Pain. If the muscle is not getting enough blood (a condition called ischemia), then insufficient oxygen and the metabolism of excessive causing cramps or spasms. Angina is a feeling of tightness in the chest or squeezing chest feeling, which occurs when the heart muscle does not get enough blood. The type and severity of pain or discomfort varies in each person. Some people experience a lack of blood flow can not feel pain at all (a condition called silent ischemia).
• Shortness of breath is a symptom commonly found in heart failure. Shortness is a result of the influx of fluid into the cavity of air in the lungs (pulmonary congestion or pulmonary edema).
• Fatigue or tiredness. If the heart is not pumping effectively, blood flow to the muscles during activity will be reduced, causing the patient to feel weak and tired. These symptoms are often mild. To overcome this, the patient usually is gradually reducing its activity or thought these symptoms as part of aging.
• Palpitations (heart palpitations)
• Dizziness and fainting. Decreased blood flow due to pulse or abnormal heart rhythms or because of poor pumping ability, can cause dizziness and fainting.
