Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death and disability in the UK, with someone admitted to a hospital every five minutes due to a heart attack.
Heat attacks can happen to people who appear traditionally healthy, and as a complete surprise – as with Jonathan in this video case study.
The case study was commissioned by Nuffield Health – a charity that provide cardio rehabilitation, as well as gyms, physiotherapy, mental health support and other health-related services.
