During the last decade the understanding of the process of coronary atherosclerosis and the risk factors in this disease, have dramatically improved. The application of preventive measures to modify and control the risk factors can lead to the stabilization of the atherosclerosis and so contribute to the decrease of mortality caused by CHD-CVD. Therefore, in many countries preventive measures of CVD and the control of risk factors have become an integral part of health care of the population. In BH prevention o of CVD is still not sufficiently practiced, though the rate of this disease is high and increasing. Therefore the purpose of this presentation is to define the problem posed by the present and projected burden of CVD, to formulate appropriate strategies for national action, to present the method and approach of preventive measures of CVD, recommended by the European Association of cardiology. The presentation will outline the content and the details of preventive measures used in the management of CHD-CVD such as the following:

  • to screen the presence of risk factors of CVD such as smoking, adverse nutrition, hypertension, increased cholesterol and physical activity.
  • to estimate an individual absolute risk of developing a CHD event over the next 10 years, using the coronary risk chart.
  • to apply the recommended preventive measures in the management of life style, hypertension, obesity, increased cholesterol among the patients with CVD and the population.
  • to educate medical personell to be capable to screen risk factors.
  • to estimate the coronary risk factors and to apply the inernational recommended measures in modifying the risk factors.
