Diseases of the cardiovascular system occupy one of the first places among the diseases of the internal organs. The most common are: arterial hypertension, coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction, ischemic heart disease, atherosclerosis, rheumatism, endocarditis, etc. At the beginning of the stressful 21st century, the incidence of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases was steadily rising, leading to death and disability worldwide.
According to WHO, in a prognostic model involving a 25-year period, it is estimated that between 2004 and 2030, ischemic heart disease and cerebrovascular disease will remain the leading cause among the top 20 causes for death worldwide.
Acquiring new knowledge for the modern patient is an important prerequisite for preventing progression of the disease and complications. Patient awareness is a prerequisite for higher satisfaction and better quality of life for patients. Apart from patients, information should also be provided to their relatives. In order to achieve a real prophylaxis leading to a reduction of the risk of cardiovascular diseases, it is necessary for each patient to know and actively participate in the healing process.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the need to obtain additional information on the disease, health care and treatment of patients with cardiovascular diseases and their relatives.
