In 2012 MUSC patient Tony Skatell experienced sudden cardiac death at age 59. Thankfully, he received CPR at the scene and was flown to MUSC where cardiac surgeon John Kratz, M.D., performed lifesaving surgery on him. A family history of heart disease had led to blockages in Tony's heart, though he didn't have any symptoms before he collapsed. Dr. Kratz explains how risk factors can affect seemingly healthy people like Tony, and discusses the role of prevention in the fight against heart disease.
