When Dr. Bob Arnot's father -- himself a distinguished doctor -- died of a massive heart attack, it came as a horrible shock. A heart attack can happen to anyone, but upon further investigation, Dr. Arnot came to believe that his father's death could have been prevented. The tragedy inspired Dr. Arnot to write this book, exploring all the very latest developments in medical science, many of which have come to light only recently, and developing steps that can help people avoid his father's fate. Dr. Bob discusses how to:
Know the warning signs
Determine your risk
Get the right diagnosis
Get the right medications
Get the right procedures
Based on extensive discussions with renowned experts in the field of cardiology, Seven Steps to Stop a Heart Attack covers all the risks, symptoms, procedures, and medications in prose that is clear, concise, and easy to follow. For a country in which half a million people die each year from heart attacks, this is a work of profound importance for the general public and physicians alike.
