Hi, my name is Dr. Warrick Bishop and I'm the author of Know Your Real Risk of Heart Attack. The thrust of this book is to try and prevent people having problems. In fact, it's to try and stop people dying, but people may still need a stent, and so today's question for you if you'd like to engage below is, do you know what a stent is?
Join our free and highly engaged Facebook community to discuss Heart Health From Prevention to Cure and Everything in Between! Doctor Warrick regularly interacts with the members and does monthly live Q&A sessions.
As with the monthly healthy heart network live shows, what I try to do is cover a patient case, or a patient story. I try to share a bit of education, and I try to answer a patient question that I've had recently, which I hope that you will find intersting, and hope that it will relate to you. So today, the patient story is about a man who is young and had a heart attack.
Today, I'm going to ask you who is carrying a list of their up to date medications. If you've listened to any of my podcasts, you know that's one of the things that drives me completely nuts; when people turn up and can't tell me exactly what medications they're on, exactly what dose, and exactly what time of day.
Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is a common medical condition that arises from a problem within the electrical system of the heart. Although it is widespread - 30 million sufferers worlwide - one of its peculiarities is that many sufferers are not aware they have it and it is discovered after a collapse or as an 'incidental finding', for example, when a patient's pulse is being monitored in association with surgery or other medical procedure.
Hi, my name is Ron. I would just like to mention that I suffer from atrial fibrillation, and I read the book after meeting with Warrick, and I found it absorbing and most interesting. And I would recommend it to anyone who suffers not only this disease, but any other heart problems as well.
Hi, I'm Matthew. I found out recently that I've got AF. At the start, it was a shock to the system, but once I got my hands on this book - I'm seeing Dr. Bishop at the moment - I've gone through his book and it is fantastic. It's such a relief. It's so handy to have information just to relieve all of the anxiety, and know where you are in the process.
Hi, my name is Cindy, and I'm currently studying at uni, upgrading from EN to RN, and I came across this book, which I found incredibly useful for my degree. It's well-written and referenced. It's easy to follow with great illustrations. It explains this complicated condition in a way that I feel I understand it now. If you are looking for a book on atrial fibrillation, I would definitely recommend this one. Thank you.
