Having a basic knowledge of heart disease is key for those suffering from, or caring for someone with, the illness

Coronary heart disease is now the leading cause of death worldwide. The effects of coronary heart disease include angina, heart failure, abnormal heart rhythms, and most importantly, heart attacks. Heart disease has a serious effect on the lives of not only its sufferers, but also those who care for them, their family, and friends. This book gives the basic information needed to understand coronary artery disease and, most essentially, how to deal with it, including details on how the heart works, problems caused by coronary heart disease, recovering from a heart attack, dealing with angina or heart failure, and lifestyle changes you can make to improve your health.
