A review in Video Librarian Magazine had this to say about Heart Disease –Treatment:
"Watching heart disease treatment feels like having an extensive private visit with a group of doctors passionate about treating this leading cause of death in the U. S., the topics covered including the simple effectiveness of aspirin as a treatment, the importance of quick response, from pre-hospital care from EMT's, angioplasty, stenting, implantable defibrillators, cardiac and bypass surgery, and the responsibilities of the patients on the road to recovery. An encompassing and timely medical guide perfectly suited for consumer health collections, this is highly recommended."
