Interventional Cardiology Education Program Provides Resources to Better

Understand the Spectrum of Treatment Options

WASHINGTON, Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI), the leading professional organization for interventional cardiology, announced the launch of Seconds Count, a patient education program designed to fill an unmet need for an authoritative resource about cardiovascular disease and treatment. The program will debut at the American Heart Association (AHA) Annual Meeting in Orlando from November 4-7, 2007.

When a heart attack occurs, every second counts. Within minutes after onset of a heart attack, the heart muscle begins to die. The most important time to save heart muscle and lives is within the first 90 minutes. But not everyone knows the symptoms of a heart attack, or whether they're at risk. Until now, heart patients and their families have had to sort through multiple news sources and conflicting information to stay informed.

"When you're having a heart attack, interventional cardiology can save your life. Time is extremely limited and immediate treatment is crucial," said Bonnie Weiner, M.D, President of SCAI and Professor of Medicine and Interim Chair of Cardiovascular Medicine at St. Vincent Hospital at Worcester Medical Center in Worcester, MA. "At seconds-count.org, we help patients and their families understand what interventional cardiology is all about and provide credible, current information on heart attacks, heart disease and treatment options."

Heart patients and their families can visit http://www.seconds-count.org to learn about their diagnosis and the various therapies available, including angiography, angioplasty and stenting, and bypass surgery. The Web site is part of a larger public education initiative in development that includes information for referring physician
