WKBW-TV Channel 7 Anchor Joanna Pasceri interviewed Dr. Irfan Khan, MD, a cardiologist and electrophysiologist at Mercy Hospital of Buffalo, and former Heart Center patient Vince Totaro about an investigational medical device called the AngelMed Guardian System that can alert patients of an imminent heart attack – often before they have any symptoms.

The device is implanted like a pacemaker and monitors the patient’s heart continuously, sending a series of alarms if it detects changes that may signal an impending heart attack.
