A new blood test for people who’ve suffered heart attacks could forecast another attack, a new study says.  Researchers found that people who’ve had heart attacks have unique cells floating in their blood system.  Scientists at the Scripps Research Institute in California are investigating to learn whether blood tests showing evidence of those cells can help doctors know when someone might be in the early stages of having another heart attack.

Feeling KOOL is brought to you by Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital.
