Hi, my name is Dr Sameer Gupta and I’m a cardiologist at M.P Heart Clinic in Greater Kailash in New Delhi. Now, I’m a cardiologist and I treat heart disease. And as you know, heart disease is ubiquitous in India, it is actually an epidemic and it is affecting every one of us. When I say every one of us, all of us know at least one person in our lives who has a heart disease whether it’s your neighbour, your family, friend, and maybe a teacher, a colleague from work. But, unfortunately, a majority of us know at least one person who has a heart disease in some form.
Now the scariest part of heart disease and the scariest form of heart disease is Coronary artery disease that means you have blockages in the arteries of your heart. Now, if you have blockages in the arteries of your heart, there is less amount of blood flow that goes to the heart and you can have chest pain, coronary artery disease, and in severe cases even a heart attack. Now, there are various reasons why people have heart disease. You can have risk factors which increase the risk – diabetes, blood pressure, cholesterol, smoking, a family history, increased stress, poor lifestyle, poor dietary choices. These are just some of the risk factors that increase your risk of having heart disease and when I say heart disease, right now I am referring to blockages in the artery of your heart.
Now, how do you know you have a heart disease?
Well, most people have some sort of discomfort, some sort of symptom that makes them think they have heart disease like they have shortness of breath, they can have just generalised fatigue, feeling of tiredness, they can have chest discomfort, they can have trouble breathing, decreased exercise capacity. For example, they may say that they used to walk two kilometres before but now every time I walk only four hundred meters, I get short of breath, I get this discomfort in my chest, it goes down my arm, I get this increased sensation of gas. That means you may have blockages in the arteries of your heart and it is time you don’t ignore it and actually consult a cardiologist and get this evaluated because proper treatment of heart disease is essential. Early recognition is part of the treatment.
I hope you enjoyed this and feel free to contact your cardiologist. You can contact me via Lybrate or the M.P Heart Clinic website and I will be there to help you.
Thank you so much!

Here are Causes, Symptoms, Tests and Precautions of Coronary Artery Disease.
A big Hi to all the viewers. I am Dr. Hardik Thakkar an MB physician practicing in Mumbai. I would like to take this opportunity to talk to you about coronary artery disease.
As the word suggests coronary artery disease is a lifestyle disorder which affects the blood vessels of the heart. What happens in you is there are these cholesterol throbey blocks as we call them in layman’s term which deposit in the arteries and then they cause blockage to your micro circulation in the heart. So because of this what happens is the patient complains of pain in the chest, breathlessness, leg swelling, and sometimes even palpitations and a lot of diabetic patients may just get asymptomatic MIs which is these blocks will be there but they may not have any symptoms as I mentioned before.
Now this disease is dreadful because a lot of times these episodes come suddenly in the middle of the night and you may not have enough time to respond and a lot of these patients if they have a very significant amount of block like more than 90 or may be a 100 percent block. They may even die within hours of reaching the hospital. This is the gravity of the situation and hence one has to act very very fast if it all you get a chest pain.
But to begin with since we are talking about lifestyle modification we want to know what is in the lifestyle which leads to the coronary artery disease. As we all know a lot of people from the urban areas who are having sedentary who are not eating right. They are not sleeping right and they are not even working out so all this puts a huge oxidant stress and the wrong diet along with high fi diet which leads to cholesterol deposition and the plagues in the coronary arteries. So what should be done? I mean we need to start at a young age because it is not as we have to wait till 40 and start acting because this plague starts developing as early as 15 years of age. To begin with to prevent the coronary artery disease you have to start early, eat healthy right from your young age. Workout regularly and have an active lifestyle and avoid smoking and alcohol. Smoking is one of the major confounding factors which predisposes to lot of damage to endothelium of your arteries.
So leading a good lifestyle right from the beginning is very very important to you know take care of your coronary artery disease and diabetics as a matter of fact are at a very high risk of having coronary artery disease as compared to the general population. And I would also recommend the public I mean the regular people at least above 40 years to have a stresses done at least once a year along with your lipid profile sugar. This is just to make sure you are on a right track and you are not missing a coronary artery disease. I would like to talk a little bit in brief on this stress test which is you know a test which used to diagnose Angina.
So what we do we make a patient run on treadmill for ten minutes and we record ECGs of all the ten minutes along with the BP changes and if it all if a person has a hidden heart disease not reflected on his symptoms we pick it up and this is followed by the angiography. Once the angiography is done depending on the amount if blocks that are found we treat the patient either medically or with stents or by bypass. This is dictated by the number of arteries the location of plague and the extent of the block. So that’s about it for coronary artery disease at the moment.
