We can identify a wide variety of cardiovascular diseases including myocardial infarction, angina pectoris and stroke. Risk factors included in the PHARMO Database Network with regard to cardiovascular diseases are systolic and diastolic blood pressure, cholesterol levels, BMI, smoking status and many others.
