Interventions can improve lifespan in patients with ischemic heart disease

A recent study using 2,467 patients with established coronary artery disease concluded that when medical facilities select interventional methods to lower cholesterol they experience improved morbidity and mortality in patients with Ischemic Heart Disease (IHD) the leading cause of death in theUS.

In this study, published in a recent issue of Worldviews on Evidence-Based Nursing, each of three medical facilities chose a different interventional method to lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-c) levels in their patients. The interventional methods included: patient education materials mailed to patients, a pharmacotherapy clinic, and a paper point-of-care reminder. These findings suggest that patients benefit from clinicians intervening to promote secondary prevention among patients with Ischemic Heart Disease. A key factor that was determined is the importance of tailoring interventions to the needs of a specific site of care which may add to the sustainability of the interventions.

Ischemic Heart Disease or Coronary Artery Disease is a condition that affects the supply of blood to the heart leading to heart attack and is the leading killer in the US.
