Chest pain can be terrifying. Many people hope that if they ignore it, it will go away. But angina must be taken seriously, and it is very important to find out what you can about it. The book answers the key questions for anyone worried about angina: what should I do when I have chest pain; does it mean I'm going to have a heart attack; and, how do I tell if it's serious. This new edition of "Living with Angina" makes the links between smoking, passive smoking, and heart health plainer than ever. It also highlights the importance of keeping up your medication in order to help prevent heart attack. Doctors are now taking angina-related depression more seriously, and the book includes up to date information on this as well. Other topics include: types of chest pain - how to identify angina; stable and unstable angina; causes of angina; reducing risk factors - tackling your cholesterol; dealing with high blood pressure; what about alcohol; managing angina - entering the heart unit; and, treating angina - medicine and surgery, including angioplasty, bypass surgery, and stents.
