I will be succinct. After 30 years of cardiology practice, with an interest in the prevention of heart attacks and heart deaths, I think my medical community is doing a poor job. The concept that heart disease, specifically clogged heart arteries called coronary artery disease (CAD), has a long period without symptoms and warnings is well known. There is often a sudden change culminating in an emergency, heart attack, or death.
