Cardiovascular risk factors in perspective.

By S. G. Carruthers

Abstract

Coronary heart disease and other manifestations of atherosclerosis are leading causes of morbidity and mortality in Canada. Despite favourable trends in recent years, we should try to reduce cardiovascular events further. Physicians must translate current knowledge into public health policies and management strategems for individual patients. Patients are best served by a comprehensive risk management approach, involving nonpharmacological (mainly lifestyle) changes and drug therapy
