The No Bull Book On Heart Disease
Real Answers To Winning Back Your Heart And HealthBook - 2009
Written in plain English by a cardiologist and a clinical psychologist specializing in heart disease, this is a practical "what-to-expect" guide that will help readers cope with their confusion, fear, and lack of information, as well as decode what doctors really mean when they describe procedures, treatments, and medications. The authors clearly explain these issues so that anyone who is at risk of heart disease, or who already has it, will have a deeper understanding of what a heart attack is, how to deal with the hospital experience, and how to interact more effectively with their doctors. In addition, the book offers insights into often-neglected aspects, such as the role a patient's spouse and family play in recovery, and what women should be aware of in the diagnostic phase of their treatment. Finally, the authors supply workable motivational tools to help make important lifestyle changes in order to get better, stay better, and avoid invasive and expensive procedures.--From publisher description.
