Coronary artery disease is an increasingly common cardiac condition defined by the accumulation of atherosclerotic plaque within coronary vessel lumens. This leads to impairment in blood flow and oxygen delivery to the myocardium, which in turn leads to ischemic heart disease.
Ischemic heart disease can present in a number of ways, from acute myocardial infarction to chronic or stable angina, and eventual heart failure secondary to ischemic remodeling. It is a cause of major morbidity and mortality worldwide. Prompt diagnosis and treatment of coronary heart disease, and ideally prevention of ischemic complications, is necessary to prevent the high morbidity and mortality associated with it.
The treatment options, steps, and the overall approach to STEMI and NSTEMI patients was absolutely insufficient in this video compared to the information we must know for exams. So vague. Most of us are medical students, we know we have to use beta blockers, the real questions are when and how much? He should've gone over a systemic approach to such patients. The initial management and etc.
Very useful content with a good basis to understand the more serious presentations of IHD. It is also very well presented
Dr. Raj makes the lecture more interesting with how he delivers the topic and the explanations behind it. His constant repetition of the topic makes one retain the information by heart. He is very smart and knows the topic very well the way he says it. I like all of his discussions…
Mr. Raj is awesome, I like his lecturing style a lot. Thanks!
