Coronary artery disease is a serious heart disease becasue it can lead to death and serious complications. It is also referred to as coronary heart disease or ischemic heart (Coronary Artery Disease, 2019). Coronary artery disease is profoundly serious because it is one of the leading causes of death in the United States and is the most common heart disease. Coronary artery disease occurs when the arteries that supply blood to heart muscle and other parts of the body become hardened and narrowed due to plaque buildup (Coronary Artery Disease, 2019). This is serious because the narrowing of the arteries can cause partial or complete block of blood flow. With decrease blood flow this consequently prevents the heart muscle from getting the blood that it needs to help pump the heart. Also, a piece of the plaque buildup may suddenly cut off and cause a heart attack. Coronary artery disease can be acute or chronic condition (Johnson, 2018). This means that complications can be abruptly or over time.
