Laboratory of Vascular Physiology and Medicine

The vascular system is the connections numerous blood vessels of our bodies. The system is comprised of artery, veins and capillaries which can. The major organs support it are heart, brain, lungs and kidneys. It is not easy to keep our vascular system healthy and functionally normal as multiple factors make adverse impact on the vessels routinely. The malfunctions of vascular system lead to life threatening conditions like stroke, IHD, atherosclerosis and many more. Among many physiological reasons ageing is the most important factor that make serious influence on vascular system. The Ageing changes vascular thickness and its elastic recoiling system and alters cardiac hemodynamic The following factors may be considered as responsible to destabilize vascular physiology:-

  • Hereditary background of heart diseases
  • Pregnancy
  • Chronic illness or severe injuries
  • Postural defects
  • Diabetes, thyroid diseases or gonadal hormone abnormalities
  • Smoking
  • Over weight
