877 Keeping Your Heart Healthy

Tune in to our radio show on your local public radio station, or sign up for the podcast and listen at your leisure. Here’s what it’s about:

When it comes to heart disease, wouldn’t prevention be better than cure? One of the country’s leading cardiologists, Dr. Steve Nissen of the Cleveland Clinic, tells us how we can keep our hearts healthy. Do men and women have different symptoms of heart troubles? Find out about the risk factors for heart disease: you probably know about smoking and high cholesterol, but what about emotional risk factors?

Which tests are really helpful, and how often should they be done? How useful are stents for preventing heart attacks? Learn how to interpret the medical headlines about clinical trials for heart disease, and what you need to know about diet and exercise.

Guest: Steven Nissen, MD, is chairman of the Robert and Suzanne Tomsich Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic. He is the co-author, with Mark Gillinov, MD, of Heart 411: The Only Guide to Heart Health You’ll Ever Need.
