INTRODUCTION AND LITERATURE REVIEWIntroductionCoronary Heart Disease (CHD) is also known as Ischemic Heart Disease (IHD). It refers toa disease where a depository substance of is deposited in the coronary arteries of the heart. Thesubstance deposited is called as plague (Gaggini and et.al., 2013). The damage in the inner layerof this artery is due to smoking, high blood pressure, inflammation in blood vessels, high level ofsugar in the blood due to diabetes, etc. It has been assessed that 37% of the deaths in people aredue to decreased physical activities.
