It is very well established now that oral health, particularly gingavitis, play a significant role in cardiac health.
Why this reality is not considered as integral part of Cardiac care?
In spite of many years of research, we still cannot predict the short term risk of a heart attack or sudden CHD death. Most CHD deaths occur outside of the hospital. In spite of improvement of out-of-hospital emergency care, most “sudden death events” are still not successfully resuscitated.
Can early warning symptoms and signs of a heart attack (acute coronary syndrome) be quantified through standardized symptom surveys, biochemical measures, electrocardiographic, or other diagnostic means to enable earlier evaluation and treatment?
