Because the patient’s heart doesn’t get enough blood, it makes CAD a systemic disease. In the present time coronary blockage is the most common reason for numerous premature deaths. Males get CAD more than females. Heart muscles require a regular blood supply, oxygen molecules and nutrients to function normally. Any blockage in the coronary arteries, make it difficult to get that amount of blood.
