Diagnosis is based on the information from the physical exam, personal family medical history, blood tests, chest X-ray, and ECG. CVD treatments may vary based on the condition and its severity. For patients with high cholesterol, healthcare providers might prescribe Lipitor or Crestor, for hypertension, beta-blockers (Sectral), and ACE inhibitors (Lotensin), to prevent blood clots, they may recommend aspirin, clopidogrel, or warfarin. More severe and life-threatening conditions require surgical procedures like the bypass surgery, a pacemaker insertion, or a stent placement. The goal of diagnosing, treatment are stabilizing the heart condition, controlling symptoms over the long-term, and providing cure.
