ABSTRACTIn often cited statistic cardiovascular disease is the number 1 cause of death in the worldwide and lot only in the developed world. This represents an aggressive identification and management of risk factors. With the many advances in our understanding and practices of risk factor management we hope to change this tendency predicted to be in 2020 the same. Now we know that exists major factor risk and others who predispose. The presence of major risk factors was associated with development of cardiovascular disease. The process of risk factor management is a multidisciplinary one, directly involving both the patient his doctor as well as many others, including nurses, other healthcare and family. The goal is preventing future cardiac events.
