Dr. Haider Warraich - The State of the Heart

More people die of heart disease than any other disease in the world, including cancer, and deaths from heart disease are on the rise around the world and in the United States. Regardless of this information, heart disease has been the focus of intense scientific scrutiny, and the journey to rid the world of it is very much reflective of the journey of medical science at large. State of the Heart: Exploring the History, Science and Future of Cardiac Disease is the story of heart failure, Ventricular Assist Devices, of hearts both transplanted and artificial, and their impact on human life. Dr. Haider Warraich takes readers inside the ER, inside doctor’s offices and recovery rooms, and inside the history and technology of heart disease with his signature blend of lucid writing and compelling narrative.
