Cardiac care may be recommended for individuals who have heart-related conditions or are at risk of developing such conditions. This may include people who have been diagnosed with conditions such as coronary artery disease, heart failure, hypertension, or arrhythmias, or those who have risk factors such as high cholesterol, obesity, or a family history of heart disease.
Cardiac care may also be recommended for individuals who have experienced a heart attack or other cardiac event, or who have undergone a procedure such as coronary artery bypass surgery or angioplasty. In general, individuals who have any concerns about their heart health should speak with a healthcare professional to determine if cardiac care is appropriate for them.
Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) have now become the leading cause of mortality or even morbidity in India. According to the WHO cardiovascular disease causes 12 million deaths in the world each year. Most cardiovascular diseases can be prevented by addressing behavioral risk factors such as tobacco use, unhealthy diet and obesity, physical inactivity, and harmful use of alcohol. Hence, early diagnosis and management are crucial.
Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are a group of disorders of the heart and blood vessels on the inner walls of the blood vessels that supply the heart or brain. Heart attacks and strokes are usually acute events and are mainly caused by a blockage that prevents blood from flowing to the heart or brain. The most common reason for this is a build-up of fatty deposits.
Besides blood tests and a chest X-ray, Electrocardiogram, Echocardiogram, cardiac catheterization, and MRI heart are the major Diagnostic tests that indicate the status of cardiac health.

Increased blood glucose
High Cholesterol and Lipids
