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.
In this podcast, Doctor Warrick Bishop, a cardiologist, shares insights from a recent conference on heart failure and cholesterol management.
The conference discussed four pillars of care for patients with cardiac failure, with a heart that doesn't pump properly, including beta blockers, the Mineralocorticoid system, neprilysin, and SGLT2 blockers.
The conference also discussed heart failure with reduced pumping, reduced ejection fraction, and atrial fibrillation, and the importance of keeping people in normal rhythm. Dr. Josephine Harris shared research around heart failure with reduced ejection fraction in specific populations, focusing particularly on the elderly and frail.
The conference also discussed a case study of a patient with high cholesterol who was apprehensive about taking medication. Finally, the conference discussed the potential toxicities to the heart of some commonly used chemotherapeutic agents and the importance of ongoing surveillance.
Doctor Bishop invites listeners to check out a free risk check at www.virtualheartcheck.com.au to understand their risk of heart attack.
- Heart disease is a major issue in Australia, with someone suffering a heart attack every 20 minutes.
- The podcast is focused on helping people understand blood pressure, weight, and cholesterol for better health.
- The foundation of care for heart failure patients with reduced ejection fraction is centered on four pillars: beta blockers, mineralocorticoid system modification, neprilysin, and SGLT2 blockers.
- Atrial fibrillation can lead to reduced pumping and efficiency of the heart, and addressing it through ablation can improve heart failure outcomes.
- Elderly and frail individuals can benefit from appropriate therapy for heart failure with reduced ejection fraction.
- Familial hypercholesterolemia can be difficult to diagnose, particularly in individuals with high-fat diets.
- Chemotherapeutic agents can have toxic effects on the heart, and surveillance is important during and after treatment.
- Genetic markers may be able to identify individuals at risk for side effects from chemotherapeutic agents.
- Heart attacks are the single biggest killer in the Western world, accounting for nine million deaths globally.
- The podcast offers a free risk check for individuals interested in understanding their risk of heart attack.
Australia, like the rest of the western world, has a heart problem.
Over 9 million people around the world die from heart disease every year.
Every 10 minutes, someone in Australia suffers a heart attack. And 21 lives are lost daily because of it.
The devastating fact in all of this is…
Almost every one of those cases could have been prevented.

- 94% of Australians have at least One Risk Factor for heart disease.
- 59% of Australians have been Touched by heart disease.
