I am Dr. Paul Kilgore, Host of the Quantitative Health Podcast. Please find me at or my website:  Today, I discuss the very serious condition called Aortic Dissection and the companion condition, Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm.  Aortic Dissection is believed to kill at least 13,000 Americans and many more around the world each year.  Mr. Jamie Dimon, Chief Executive Officer of JP Morgan Chase and a well-known leader on Wall Street developed chest pain this past Thursday morning. Luckily, he got to the hospital a short time later and doctors found he had Aortic Dissection. Hear me today discuss this condition, how we diagnose, treat and prevent this condition and the Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm.  Write me anytime with questions and please drop a quick rating of the podcast. I welcome your suggestions and comments to guide future episodes of the Quantitative Health Podcast.  Thank you, Dr. Paul Kilgore, MD, MPH, FACP
