((Where would be a better place to have a heart attack, a hospital or a casino? I bet I know what you're going to say but guess what, the answer may be a casino.
VT=VO

The reason, easier and quicker access to what are called smart defibrillators, devices that can be used to restart a heart by people with limited emergency training. A study from the Medical College of Virginia shows just 14% of hospitals in Virginia have these smart defibrillators, while casino's basically have them stationed every few feet on the casino floor.
VT=VO

Now how do you avoid needing a defibrillator in the first place? Well if you're a so called couch potato, it's by going slowly when you take up an exercise program or for that matter exert yourself suddenly like going out and shoveling snow. A study in JAMA says your risk of heart attack is 30times more likely during exertion than at any other time. That's why we say see a doctor before starting an exercise program and maybe invest in a snow blower come winter. ON CAM And finally, we doctors are pretty good at telling you what to do but how good are we at following our own advice. Sometimes not so good. At this week's American Heart Association meeting some were taken to task by the president of the Heart Association. The reasons, 60% of cardiologists admit they don't know their cholesterol readings. Many don't exercise on a regular basis and several docs were seen sneaking off into a corner for a smoke. The bottom line here, physician heal thyself. That's a look at today's top medical stories. I'm Dr. Dave Hnida for CBS NEWS.))
