The Heart of the Matter
The Heart of the MatterPersonal Accounts and Expert Advice on Heart AttacksJakob Ratz Endler, Martin Ratz
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in all areas of the world except Africa and almost everyone knows someone who is affected by it. In this book, doctor Jakob Ratz Endler gives insightful advice with the support of a number of experts on everything from the anatomy of the heart to what treatment someone normally receives in hospital when they suffer a heart attack including how they can feel after it, emotionally.
In fact, modern treatments and lifestyle changes in particular can dramatically reduce the risk of suffering a heart attack in the first place. All facts in the book are supplemented by real patients’ stories about how it actually feels to have a bypass and take medicine every day.
