These factsheets explain many terms related to heart issues. Our aim is to help inform readers of the meanings and uses of various terms.
  The contents are not advice, and the BCPA and the author cannot accept any responsibility.
  For ease of English style, we have sometimes used 'you' to mean the patient or carer, as well as the reader.
  The Factsheets have links to the Glossary in them which will open in a new window. PDF versions are available on the Downloads page
