Lawrence Leader, D.O., of Hattiesburg Clinic talked with Fox23’s Elizabeth Rodil about American Heart Month, which is celebrated in February.
In the video, Dr. Leader advises 3 simple steps to help manage your heart:
- Learn basic life support skills. Knowing these basic skills can potentially save a person’s life and minimize damage to the brain and heart while waiting for emergency personnel to arrive.
- Help your peers by setting a heart healthy example. Living a heart healthy lifestyle may help others make better choices.
- Limit alcohol. Drinking excessive amounts of alcohol can lead to serious consequences for your heart such as cardio myopathy and congestive heart failure.
