Are you on a cholesterol lowering tablet? Are you happy you're on a cholesterol lowering tablet. Do you know exactly why you're on that tablet? Do you know what goal or objective, what levels you're aiming for with that tablet?
I'm interested in trying to reduce cardiovascular events, or heart attack, for individuals. I've got a question for you today, though. What I'd like to know is whether you're engaged in looking after your own health and do you know what your up-to-date sugar levels are?
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 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.
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.

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.
People often wonder what a stent is. Well, a stent is the term that we use for the structure, which is really a cage that we use to open up arteries. Now, way back when I was a cardiology registrar, just starting off in the game, we had these fantastic clot busting medicines. So, when people came into hospital with a heart attack, a blocked artery, we could give them these clot busters. And we could break up the clot that had formed on a ruptured, plaque and start to reestablish blood flow. Well, that clot would often form on a tightly narrowed area.
