Heart Attack Advice for Patients by Patients (Paperback)
|Author: Kathy (EDT) Berra|
|Millions of people---many of them younger than we care to believe---are no living in the aftermath of a heart attack, and it is vital for them to learn how to reduce the risk factors for subsequent heart problems. This unique and important book offers advice to survivors of a heart attack and also to those trying to prevent the onset of a heart attack. Contributors include not only distinguished medical professionals but also eleven individuals who either participated in a cardiac rehabilitation program or designed a program of their own. The patients---men and women of varied ages and ethnic backgrounds---relate their own histories, providing insight into the many faces of heart disease and inspiration and hope for other heart attack survivors.|
