There is still no agreement on the age at which a person becomes old Demographers traditionally use a particular age as the beginning of old age, assuming that calendar age and biologi cat age are synonymous This age, often set at age 65, varies from country to country and from time to time reflecting cultural and social class differences and other criteria related to the degree of biological decline. Life expectancy at all ages is also increasing Cardiovascular pathologies such as hypertension and cerebrovascular disease and heart diseases such as coronary artery disease, arrhythmias, and heart failure increase in incidence with increasing age. Cardiovascular disease is the most frequent single cause of death in persons over 6S years of age, and most importantly it is responsible for considerable morbidity and a large burden of disability, particularly in the community The aging process itselfalso effects the cardiovascular system. Aging is associated with complex and diversified changes of cardiovascular structure and function. The cardiovascular and reflex changes brought about by aging may have significant implications for circulatory homeostasis in health anddisease.
