Summary
Striking without warning, myocardial infarctions-also known as heart attacks-kill millions globally every year. They require emergency medical care and yet, despite their severity, they can often be prevented if a few basic personal and medical safeguards are adopted. This program looks at the causes, symptoms, impact, and treatment of myocardial infarction with help from experts, case studies, and compelling visuals. Viewers learn about the factors that lead to heart attacks and the behavioral steps, such as better diet and exercise, that can reduce heart disease and avert heart failure. The importance of preventive screening tests is also discussed. Expert commentators include Dr. Eugene McFadden of Cork University Hospital, Ireland; Dr. Francesco Prati of San Giovanni Hospital, Italy; and Dr. Gijs van Soest of the Erasmus Medical Center, Rotterdam. Helpful 3D graphics reinforce core concepts. Contains surgical scenes of a graphic nature.
