Cardiovascular means involving or relating to the human heart and blood vessels. Cardio originates from Kardia a Greek word meaning heart whereas vascular comes from vasculum which means vessel in Latin. The cardiovascular system is the system which both exchanges and transports oxygen, wastes and carbon dioxide to cells in tissue from the environment.

In today's society there are many diseases which adversely affect the cardiovascular system. These are referred to as cardiovascular diseases. Neurologists, cardiologists, thoracic surgeons, vascular surgeons or interventional radiologists generally specialize in treatment for people suffering from cardiovascular diseases. There is an inverse relationship with these illnesses and exercise meaning the more exercise one has the less likely the possibility of contracting a cardiovascular disease. More than 71.3 million people in America suffer from some kind of cardiovascular disease.
