I’d like to draw your attention to a useful website. The folks at WebMD and Medscape have a website, http://theheart.org, that is devoted to providing information about diseases of the heart and circulation, and particularly their treatment and prevention. The website’s primary audience is healthcare professionals, but there is much worthwhile information at the site for patients and family members, as well. I’ll put a permanent link to the site at the right.
For healthcare professionals, and particularly those who work in the broad field of cardiovascular medicine, this site provides up-to-the-minute information about breaking news in the field.
For the endurance athletes out there, one way to make use of this site would be to find information that interests you, or concerns your particular medical condition, and then discuss this with your own physician.
