Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a buildup of plaque in the heart's arteries, which can lead to a heart attack and decrease the pumping ability of the heart muscle (American Heart Association, 2015). Because CAD is a cause major cause of mortality worldwide, it is essential to understand the risk factors, signs and symptoms, and pathophysiology behind the disease (Kanejima, 2020). To further investigate CAD, this poster was created as an educational tool. The poster discusses treatment options for heart attacks and CAD as well as preventative measures. This poster should be used as a tool to educate the public and health care professionals about CAD.
