If yes then do you know the biological changes that happen inside your body during that time?

Have you experienced heart attack or cardiac arrest?

If no, then will you get one in the future?

Do you know all the types of heart diseases that can occur to people?

If no, then when are you planning to learn about it in the future?

Medical science shows that the damage caused in our heart is for long term and if you got any kind of heart problem, then you will have to take medication throughout your life, and if you skip them, then you increase your chances of getting heart attack

Many people assume the stress is bad and it can lead to heart attack or stroke, but do they know the science behind it?

This course will start in a step by step process, where you will see how our body changes its functions, to adapt to the stressful environment. and then the sequence of heart problems that leads you to heart attack or cardiac arrest. My course is completely based on scientific facts, and it will prove to you how stress can contribute towards cardiovascular disease

What are the requirements?

  • There are no prerequisites. Students only need to know about the basics of human body, something that we learned in school biology class like what is digestive system?

What am I going to get from this course?

Section 1: Introduction
About Myself
Section 2: Science Behind Stress

Why does every animal on the planet gets stressed? and what is the main purpose for triggering stress in the lives of humans?


How do we came to know about the harmful effects of stress on the body? and where does the stress field emerged in the biological studies?


how does our body changes its biological functions during stress?


Changes that occur inside the body during stress and what happens when we trigger psychological stress for a longer duration?

Section 3: Stress and Our Brain

How our nervous system works and what it does during stress response?


When scientists discovered the hormones that are secrete by specific part of the brain?


What are the main properties of nervous system and hormones in the body and what hormones do they secrete during stress?


Summarizing all the theories discussed in the previous videos, and explaining the entire process of activating cardiovascular system during stress.

10 questions

All questions have contradictory answers. Real world cases are complex and we need to understand the diversity of answers

Section 4: Cardiovascular Disease Basics

understanding how our blood pressure increases and the connection of stress with it.


The step by step process of developing atherosclerosis or blocking of arteries.


Why should we have optimal level of cholesterol, and which type of cholesterol is bad for the body?

8 questions

Ask yourself more questions, while answering. And learn to do more research for better understanding

Section 5: Heart Diseases

How the blood moves inside the chambers of the heart, from Right Atrium to Right Ventricle, Right Ventricle to Lungs, Lungs to Left Atrium, Left Atrium to Left Ventricle and Left Ventricle to the body through Aorta.

Four Valves or Doors that open and close between the chambers. The tricuspid Valve opens to allow blood to move from right atrium to right ventricle. Pulmonary Valve opens to allow blood to move from right ventricle to Lungs. Mitral Valve opens to allow blood to come from lungs into right Atrium, and Aortic Valve opens to allow blood to move from left ventricle to the body.

Sinoatrial Node and Atrioventricular node helps in the conduction system of the heart.


In this, First I'll explain the process of transferring blood to the heart muscles. and what happens when less oxygen goes to the heart muscles. And different types of damages that occur to the heart muscles


how our heart valves function and what kind of problems can occur in the heart valves?


How can we predict that we have developed Heart Valve Disorder? How does doctors analyze the valve disorder? How can we connect stress with Valve Disorder according to the level of damage?


I'll explain the process of electrical impulses in our heart. and how different types of arrhythmias occur in the heart. I'll explain 6 types of arrhythmia in the atrium, and 5 types of arrhythmia in the ventricle.


How can we predict the early symptoms of arrhythmia? the tests and diagnosis for predicting arrhythmia at early stage. and how emotional stress contributes to arrhythmia?


First i'll explain the pathophysiology of heart failure ( the biological explanation of the heart function). Different types of heart failures


How people develop heart failure and why do our heart starts adapting to the damage? Different types of symptoms and how does we feel when we get heart failure? Then biological connection of stress and heart failure


Step by step progress of developing a heart attack. Different types of heart attacks. Types of damages caused during heart attack.


Step by step process of getting cardiac arrest. The importance of Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). And what happens inside our body during cardiac arrest?


The perception of people towards heart attack. I'll explain it with the help of a study, and show why people don't think too much about heart attacks. then I'll show why women get more heart attack risk than men.


I'll explain the major risk factors that are common in all cardiovascular diseases and different types of environments that causes stress and lead to heart attack, cardiac arrest, and acute coronary disease attack.


the impact of cardiovascular disease around the world and in United States. and the scale of this problem. then why do we have stress controversy in the medical field?

21 questions

Predicting the symptoms is the first step towards preventing a heart problem. Critically evaluate each options, and compare it with your own life.
