With the sudden passing of Tim Russert on June 13th there has been a lot of talk and news about heart health. Understanding the heart, how it functions, heart diseases and treatments and heart conditions can help any of us who are worried about our own or a loved one’s health.

I have Mitral Valve Prolapse. This is a common heart condition. My cardioliogist has explained it to me and I am screened for it every year. Using the Heart Library and viewing videos especially the video about a healthy heart has eased my mind a great deal.

Sharing this site with others can provide information and support that people who may soon be undergoing open heart surgery or other procedures or who have just been diagnosed with some type of cardiac problem. Seeing is believing and the videos help you to understand and learn.

  1. Thanks for sharing the awareness about heart health. I’ve been taking medication for an auto-immune disease for years. The side effect is increased cholesterol. I’ve forged a good relationship with my doctor and my cholesterol is watched closely since stroke runs in my family.

    It’s crucial that we have regular exams. Especially for those who don’t have some type of health concern because the silent killers don’t send memos about their arrival.

    Having a physician we know and trust keeps us engaged with our health and that may be a key factor in staying healthy and avoided these sudden death incidents.
