My father died of Ischaemic heart disease, could this have been detected?
Answer: Yes, via autopsy that will be performed by a licensed pathologist.
- While ischemic heart disease can be detected (typically via a stress test), it is much more likely that someone without previously diagnosed ischemic heart disease would die of acute myocardial ischemia and infarction (a myocardial infarction) rather than chronic myocardial ischemia.

in a stress test report if results say " findings negative for reversible ischaemia" then what does it mean
- Negative for ischemia means that there is no obstructive plaque detected by the test. These tests are typically tunes to be sensitive enough to detect plaques that block up (stenose) about 70% or more of an artery. No test is perfect, and some false negatives (and false positives) do occur. The results of the test should be gone over with a cardiologist (or other trained professional) and used along with a careful history and physical to decide if further evaluation is necessary.

VA Ordered to Release Agent Orange Rule
A coalition of veterans' service organizations won their case to force the VA to issue a final regulation authorizing payment of claims for ISCHEMIC HEART DISEASE, Parkinson's disease, or B-cell leukemia for any veteran who stepped foot in Vietnam during the war, or their survivors. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit instructed VA to issue the rule by Sept. 1. Read the Full Article.

Is this article describing what the BBC article on robin cooks death refers to as "hypertensive heart disease"? Or would a redirect to Hypertension#Complications be more appropriate? --NicholasJones 18:08, 9 August 2005 (UTC)
I dont understand what you mean?
IHD vs. CAD

Most common cause of death?
I thought that was cancer (Malignant neoplasms)?
- See the table at the bottom of Causes of Death, Australia, 2004, for instance... --Sabik 12:21, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Several descriptions/clarifications are inaccurate, for example where temporary pain and damage is described as ischaemia, which it is not. Yazza 17:23, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
- Well, ischaemia is certainly the mechanism underlying temporary pain and damage. JFW | T@lk 20:08, 9 December 2007 (UTC)
Hard water as a preventative factor
There is research indicating that drinking hard water may help prevent ischaemic heart disease (http://www.mgwater.com/calcium.shtml). Should this information be included in this article? --Masden 12:22, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
Acute Coronary Syndrome
ACS is a general term used to describe conditions ranging from unstable angina to ST elevated MI. The listing of ACS as though it is a different type when compared to MI or unstable angina is wrong. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 22:16, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
The "Prevention" section is quite limited. The various antihypertensive drug options were recently reviewed (at PMID 22480336), finding only small difference in outcomes for alpha-blockers, beta-blockers, angiotensin convering enzyme, angiotensin receptor blockers, and calcium-channel blockers. Discussion of smoking cessation is obviously needed: the impact of smoking on heart disease has long been recognized, but it is now thought (PMID 19654885) to have been severely underestimated due to systemic biases in studies. Some discussion on management of diabetes as a risk factor would seem useful too. LeadSongDog come howl! 17:31, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
I was thinking to emphasize inexpesive, non-medical interventions;
like exercise, healthy eating, getting up (not sedentary), smoking.

- The PLoSONE article is primary, so while interesting it is of limited use. The second is just a press release announcing PMID 22988010 (jointly published as PMID 22988314 and PMID 22995536 the same month). All these journals are subscriber-only, but the article looks like it should be useful. The third is basic public-facing guidance from the American Heart Association website. It looks helpful, I'll have to get a copy. The fourth, from JHU, is rather troubling. It has a self-promotional tone that borders on advertising. Worse, its advice on diet is grossly simplistic: "Eat a diet low in saturated fat, cholesterol and salt." It omits mention of transfats, LDL vs HDL, sodium vs potassium, ... Frankly I'm shocked that a fine organization such as JHU would put that out in that state. LeadSongDog come howl! 16:50, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
well.. found another one. I suppose its just common sense to be healthy one should maintain their health.
