About the Book:
In this volume, Dr. Jay Levine takes the reader on a guided tour of the mysteries of the cardiovascular system, how it functions in health and in sickness, and what the reader must be aware of to improve his or her chances of ongoing good health. Problems are identified, and treatment options are discussed simply and easily without resorting to medically complex jargon in order to alert the reader to what could go wrong and what can be done to correct the problems. In the current era of internet medicine and television and cell phone medical examinations, it has never been more important for the patient to learn what could possibly go wrong with the body. Using easily understood lay terminology, this book describes how the anatomy, normal function, disease abnormalities, and therapeutic approaches are all interrelated in this magnificent machine called the heart. The volume reads like a novel with one chapter gliding smoothly into the next so that the reader gains a deep understanding of a process that has fascinated and confounded physicians for ages. Welcome aboard your trip through the cardiovascular system.
