Types of Heart Disease
Congenital Heart Disease
There are some forms of deformities of heart, which have been present since birth. Examples are:-
- Septal defects: – There is a hole between two chambers of the heart.

There are several ways in which the rate of heartbeat changes:-
- Tachycardia: – It is when the heart beats too fast.
- Bradycardia:-It is when the heart beats too slowly.
- Premature ventricular contractions: – It is when the heart beats abnormally.
- Fibrillation:-When heartbeat is irregular
It happens when electrical pulses in the heart do not coordinate with heartbeats. Many experience irregular heartbeat. It feels like heart racing.
Coronary Artery Disease
Coronary arteries supply the heart muscles with nutrients and oxygen by circulating blood. Coronary arteries can become damaged because the plaque deposit contains cholesterol. Plaque buildup narrows the coronary artery and the heart receives less oxygen and nutrients.
In it, heart chambers are dilated. It is because of the weakening of heart muscles that heart cannot pump blood properly. The most common reason is that enough oxygen is not reaching the heart muscle. This effect left ventricle.
In it, blood flow becomes interrupted or destroys heart muscle. It is usually caused by a blood clot that develops in one coronary artery.
It happens when the heart is not pumping blood around the body efficiently. High blood pressure builds up in it, which makes the heart stiff and weak.
In it, pumping blood becomes hard for the heart from the right ventricle to pulmonary artery as pulmonary valve becomes tight. Right ventricle has to work hard to overcome the obstruction.
