PATHOPHYSIOLOGY: (Book -based)

Non-modifiable Factors: Modifiable Factors:

Increase in age- 55 years old and above Sedentary lifestyle


Gender- female

Decreased elasticity of blood vessels and formation of plaques on blood vessels

Narrowing of the blood vessels

Necrosis and scarring of the vascular endothelium

Impediment of blood flow to the body

Increased workload of the heart

Dilation of ventricles

Increased in preload

Increased stretching of myocardial muscle

Excessive stretching of myocardial muscle

Ineffective cardiac muscle contraction and increase O2 demand of cardiac muscle cells

Decreased contraction of cardiac muscle

Decreased cardiac output and systemic perfusion
