Harold L. Karpman, MD, is the author of the books Your Second Life and Preventing Silent Heart Disease and dozens of scientific papers. He was the founder of a large cardiology group practice in Beverly Hills, was on the attending staffs of the UCLA and Cedars-Sinai Medical Centers, and was an Clinical Professor at the UCLA School of Medicine. He currently lives with his wife Molinda in Beverly Hills.
Dr. Karpman is among the handful of acclaimed innovators and pioneers in Cardiology. His career spans the middle of the last century when 30% of patients died from heart attacks. Patients were rushed to defibrillator devices nearly the size of a small room to shock the heart and save lives. For over 7 decades, Dr. Karpman has been an integral contributor to the amazing transformation in cardiovascular health care. Death from heart attacks has fallen to a small fraction and defibrillators inserted in patients are now the size of a coin. Silent ischemia is deadly and you can do something about it. Travel this amazing journey with Dr. Karpman who in plain English may save your life and the life of your loved ones.
