About this title

Synopsis:

Take charge of your heart health today. The New Heart Disease Handbook provides you with all the information you need to safeguard your heart. And even after a heart disease has been diagnosed, this practical reference book can be used to take positive action—to control the illness, minimize its effects, and have a say in the selection of the best possible treatment.
Written by Dr. Christopher Cannon, a leading cardiologist working at the forefront of heart research, it covers every aspect of heart health, care, and treatment. Clearly and simply, Dr. Cannon describes the most common heart diseases and exactly what steps you need to take to prevent or treat them. Drawing on the latest clinical studies, he sets out the risk factors, while suggesting easy ways to reduce those risks, from choosing heart-friendly foods and adopting relaxation techniques to lowering cholesterol and blood pressure. He explains the uses and potential side effects of standard and new medications, and talks you through the most widely used tests, treatments, and surgical procedures so that you know exactly what to expect and how to prepare. The accompanying illustrations, quick-reference tables, and handy checklists of questions will further assist you to assess your own health, and make the most of your consultations with your doctor and specialists.

Empowering and inspiring, positive yet practical, The New Heart Disease Handbook will help you not just maintain good heart health, but improve the quality of the rest of your life.
