Medication is a fundamental part of treating Heart Disease. Over the last 50 years, the range of medications available to treat Heart Disease has expanded, and medications have become so effective that sometimes invasive procedures or surgery can be avoided.
Medications serve to:
- Reduce and Resolve Symptoms (what the patient feels such as pain, breathlessness, giddiness, and leg swelling)
- Improve Function (how well the patient can perform exercise or work)
- Prolong Lifespan
