Almost every one of those cases could have been prevented.

EP318: Interview With Jason Curtis - Strength and Conditioning Coach (Part 2)

Welcome to my podcast. I am Doctor Warrick Bishop, and I want to help you to live as well as possible for as long as possible. I’m a practising cardiologist, best-selling author, keynote speaker, and the creator of The Healthy Heart Network. I have over 20 years as a specialist cardiologist and a private practice of over 10,000 patients. This episode discusses approaches to strength training and fitness for older adults. It recommends twice-weekly full-body strength sessions focusing on compound exercises like squats, deadlifts, and presses. Intensity should start low and progressively increase to build strength and injury resistance. Additionally, sessions should end with high-intensity interval training to develop cardiovascular fitness. The discussion delves into how different rep ranges trigger distinct muscle responses for strength, hypertrophy, or endurance. Supplemental techniques like blood flow restriction may help with rehabilitation by enhancing muscle pump. Overall, the podcast provides a science-based yet practical blueprint for improving fitness through resistance and metabolic training. Read more

EP294: What Is A Cardiac Arrest?

Welcome to my podcast. I am Doctor Warrick Bishop, and I want to help you to live as well as possible for as long as possible. I’m a practising cardiologist, best-selling author, keynote speaker, and the creator of The Healthy Heart Network. I have over 20 years as a specialist cardiologist and a private practice of over 10,000 patients. Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart's electrical system malfunctions, causing an irregular heartbeat. This requires immediate CPR and defibrillation to restore a normal rhythm. A heart attack is caused by blocked arteries and may lead to cardiac arrest over time. While some studies have found a link between mRNA vaccines and myocarditis or pericarditis, particularly in young men, there is no evidence these vaccines cause sudden cardiac death. For anyone experiencing chest pain, if there is any uncertainty about the cause, it is important to get it checked by a doctor to rule out a potential heart issue. Read more

EP287: Heart Attack vs. Heart Failure and the Role of AI

Heart attack occurs when an artery to the heart is suddenly blocked, depriving the heart muscle of blood and oxygen. Heart failure means the heart cannot pump enough blood to meet the body's needs, causing fatigue and fluid buildup in the lungs and legs. Early detection of heart failure is important so medication can be started promptly. New AI tools show promise in speeding up diagnosis of heart conditions but privacy concerns must be addressed before widespread adoption. While AI could save doctors time, questions remain about data ownership and protection of patient information. While AI may revolutionize medicine, proper safeguards must be put in place to ensure patient privacy and integrity of care. Read more
