When your Doctor Says Heart Disease
A Guide to Regaining Control Over your Health and Well-beingBook - 2010
In this era when doctors are ever busier—and harder to reach with questions—patients are turning to other sources for answers about the problems they face. But it is difficult to know where to turn to find the most reliable and up-to-date information on a specific health condition, and evaluating the vast number of sources available can take countless hours and be quite costly. The When Your Doctor Says series from KWS Publishers offers the latest in research in affordable paperback editions, each volume dedicated to a single medical condition.
When Your Doctor Says . . . Heart Disease provides practical guidance about what to do if you have suffered a heart attack or received a diagnosis of a heart condition. It explains the diagnostic tests and monitoring procedures used to evaluate heart function and describes the various medications used to regulate heart rhythm, lower blood pressure, control cholesterol, and improve the efficiency of the heart. Lifestyle issues related to restoring heart health are also reviewed.
