INTRODUCTION Cardiovascular disease is a general term that describes the disease of the heart or the blood vessels. These diseases can include many categories, some of which includes, angina, abnormal blood pressure for the age group, myocardial infarction, cardiac arrest, abnormal pulse, hypertensive emergency and others which will be discussed later on. The cardiovascular system is actually made up of a few parts, including the heart, blood and all the blood vessels (arteries, veins and capillaries) in the body. Even so, most of the diseases and the emergencies involving the cardiovascular system mostly is about the heart and not the blood vessels.

Heart disease is a certain illness or disorder in the heart itself and the blood vessels in which, describes different conditions that affect your heart like cardiovascular disease in which the blood vessels get blocked or narrow that can lead to heart attacks. There are many other conditions in the heart like chest pains due to a problem in the muscles or valves. Many types of heart disease can be solved or even prevented by having a healthy life style and healthy choices, Heart disease can also be called (cardio vascular disease), which is generally refers to situations in which twisted or closed blood vessels that lead to heart attacks.
CaNaEDTA (Calcium ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid) is given through an injection to the body to treat extreme cases of lead poisoning. Scientific world has divided into two parts on the issue of whether chelation therapy is a legit procedure for ailments for instance heart problems and arteriosclerosis. One of the most important point on which majority of scientist agree and come to common terms about chelation therapy is that EDTA, an artificial amino acid, is highly effective at getting rid of poisonous heavy metals from the

Beta-3 receptors are located in the fat cells. When taking beta blockers they block B1 and B2 receptors therefore the effects of norepinephrine and epinephrine. By blocking these neurotransmitter effects, beta blockers reduce heart rate, decrease blood pressure, and help blood vessels open up to improve blood flow. (Ogbru & Mark, 2015) This class of medications are important because they the most commonly used medications for cardiovascular diseases. Some of the common diseases that beta blockers treat are angina, heart failure, high blood pressure, atrial fibrillation, and myocardial
Verapamil is useful in treating and preventing chest pains which were caused from contraction of the coronary arteries that reduces the flow of blood to the heart. Relaxing muscles in the arteries in the body lowers blood pressure and reduces the pressure against the heart. As a result, the heart is allowed to work less and requires less oxygen-carrying blood. Verapamil also decreases the conduction of electrical impulses through the heart that control the coordination of contraction (which creates the spasms) (Verapamil, Calan, Verelan, Isoptin: Drug Facts, Side Effects and Dosing. (n.d.).
The low body temperature from the cooling pads causes the immune system to slow down. Typically, a strong immune system is extremely crucial to the body’s overall health from exterior infections and diseases; however, during the process of induced hypothermia, a decrease in immune system is prefered because it reduces the risk of inflammatory reactions. In a healthy body, inflammatory reactions are important because they will create an increase in blood circulation, which will normally help fight off
