One barrier that embodies multiple categories of barriers is a circumstance where the loved ones of a vegetative patient are requesting all measures to be taken despite very low odds. Financially, these desperate measures are commanding a vast amount of resources that boost costs not only for the hospital but for the family as well. Legally, the healthcare professionals are required to respect the patient’s wishes and if they wish to remain attached to expensive machines, the healthcare professional must adhere to those desires. Another ethical and legal barrier for families is knowing when to pull the plug and when to wait for a miracle.

Coronary heart disease, otherwise known as CHD, is when plaque builds up in your coronary arteries. As the plaque builds up it starts to stop the flow of oxygen rich blood. If the plaque in an artery would rupture it could cause a blood clot, which would then stop blood flow to the heart. Angina is one of the most common symptoms of CHD. This is when your heart doesn’t receive enough oxygen rich blood and chest pains start to occur.
Heart Failure (HF) occurs when the heart is unable to pump the necessary volume of blood to meet demands of tissue metabolism. This condition can be acute; it may have a fast onset or clinical change of signs and symptoms (Andrietta, Moreira, & Barros, 2011). The patient with heart failure presents with shortness of breath, cough, or difficulty breathing on activity. The patient often experiences acute exacerbation of symptoms resulting in hospitalization for medical management.

Blood will flow from the left ventricle into the right ventricle with this particular defect. The defect causes increased blood flow into the lungs and can eventually result in pulmonary hypertension. Pulmonary hypertension will causes damage to the small blood vessels in lungs progressively through time. This is known as pulmonary vascular disease. As the damage progresses, pulmonary hypertension will increase and the small blood vessels become thickened and blocked affecting the flow of blood.
