Everyday, otherwise healthy people fall victim to heart attacks. Unfortunately, if decisive action isn't taken with great speed, the outcome can be fatal. In North County the Palomar Pomerado Cardiac Alert Program is bringing treatment to victims in record time. Now they are spreading the word that it is essential to call 9-1-1 at the first suspicion of a heart attack.

Guests:

  • Dr. Dennis Leahy - Intervention Cardiologist who created the Cardiac Alert program.
