Woman's Heart by John A. Elefteriades
Book DescriptionIf you ask the average American what the leading cause of mortality in women is, most would probably guess breast cancer. In fact, heart disease is the number one killer of women, and more women die each year from heart disease than men. Moreover, the symptoms of heart problems in women are very different from those in men, making detection more difficult. In this invaluable and engaging guide to the woman's heart, two leading heart specialists focus on the unique factors affecting women's cardiovascular health. Writing in language that is completely accessible to the general reader, they provide crucial, potentially life-saving information and guidance to help women monitor their own heart health. Among the topics discussed in clear, easy-to-follow language are: in what ways is a woman's heart different from a man's; how do pregnancy and childbirth affect the heart and circulation; what are the symptoms of heart disease in women; what are the most prevalent diseases of the heart among women - including mitral valve prolapse - and how dangerous are they really; what cardiac tests should women be taking; when are medications enough and when is surgery necessary; how is the heart affected by menopause and ageing; and, what are the future prospects for improving heart health and treatment for women. For both healthy women and those already coping with heart disease, this comprehensive 'owner's manual' on the female heart provides essential information for living life to its fullest.
