Hi, my name's Doctor Warrick Bishop, and I'm the author of Know Your Real Risk of Heart Attack. Well, I've written this book to try and inform people about the information required to reduce their risk of a heart problem. So I'm going to ask you a quick question today. Do you know what your blood pressure is? Do you understand what blood pressure is? When did you last have your blood pressure checked? Why is your blood pressure important?
Hi, my name's Doctor Warrick Bishop, and I'm the author of Know Your Real Risk of Heart Attack. I wrote this book because I really want to inform individuals of what questions they can ask their doctor to get the very best care that they need. This book is a little bit about the technology that is ahead of current guidelines that may be ahead of where your doctor currently has done the reading. I'm not sure about that, but that's the space that this book was aimed at filling.
Hi, my name's Dr. Warrick Bishop, and you might know of me as the author of Know Your Real Risk of Heart Attack. But tonight, I'm coming at you with a different question tonight. I'm really interested to know what you think about the new My Health Card here in Australia.
Hi, my name is Dr. Warrick Bishop. And you might be aware I'm the author of Know Your Real Risk of Heart Attack. My hope is to try and stop people dying from cardiovascular events, but we can't prevent people still needing some therapies.
My family history of heart disease probably goes back many generations on my father's side, my grandfather died of heart problems and my father had a heart bypass when he was in his early sixties when Tasmanians had to travel to Adelaide for the operation. My younger brother had a heart attack at the age of fifty-two.
