All Cardiology Q&A's:
- How serious was Vice President Dick Cheney's latest heart problem, atrial fibrillation?
- Is there a definitive test that will diagnose angina?
- How is an enlarged left ventricle treated?
- How long does Coumadin (warfarin) remain in your system after you stop taking it?
- I had CABG eight months ago and my diet has "slipped." Am I at greater risk of having another heart attack sooner if I don't clean up my bad eating habits for good?
- When I lie down at night with my head on my pillow I can hear my heart beating loudly in my ears. It is often so loud that I cannot get to sleep. I have borderline high blood pressure, could that be it?
- Can statins cause depression?
- Can asthma and the resulting inability to steadily breathe in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide cause a heart attack in someone who has heart disease?
- I have high blood pressure and kidney problems, but I manage it carefully with blood pressure medication. I heard I still run a risk for heart disease because my BP is high - is this true? If so how can I prevent this from happening?
- What is a "TIA" (transient ischemic attack), and how would I know if I was having this type of attack?
- Are heart attack symptoms in women the same as in men?
- I love steak, but everyone tells me that it's not good for my heart. Is this true? Is all red meat bad for the heart?
- I've heard about cough CPR. Does this work?
