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.
- Heart attack is caused by a blocked artery, while cardiac arrest is due to electrical instability of the heart muscle.
- In cardiac arrest, the priority is to restore the heart rhythm using CPR and defibrillators. In heart attack, the priority is opening the blocked artery.
- There has been a link found between mRNA vaccines and increased risk of myocarditis and pericarditis, but it is infrequent and short-lived.
- There is no clear evidence that vaccines cause sudden cardiac death.
- Family history of sudden cardiac death and conditions like hypertrophic cardiomyopathy can increase risk of sudden cardiac arrest.
- Trauma or impact to the chest can in rare cases trigger sudden cardiac arrest in athletes.
- If you're unsure if a pain is heart-related or not, you should get it checked out to be safe.
- Statins are an effective treatment for high cholesterol, but new alternative therapies are being developed.
- Coronary artery disease is a leading cause of death.
- Checking your cardiovascular risk factors can help identify ways to reduce that risk.
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 live
s are lost daily because of it.
The devastating fact in all of this is…
Almost every one of those cases could have been prevented.
This podcast is for anyone who wants to improve their health literacy and gain information to help them make the best decisions about their risk of heart attack, their cholesterol, blood pressure, risk of diabetes, weight loss and general health. Join me on my personal mission journey to prevent Heart Attack on a global scale. If you like this podcast, I would be honoured by a 5-star review and appreciate if you let your friends and family know about this podcast; you may even save the life of someone you love!
Are You at Risk of a Sudden Heart Attack? How Healthy is Your Heart? Really?
Heart disease is the #1 killer in the Western World. In Australia, someone dies every 28 minutes from heart disease. That’s 51 people a day. In the US, someone has a heart attack every 40 SECONDS! Fortunately, many heart attacks are preventable. However, regular exercise and eating healthy are no guarantee you won’t succumb to this silent killer.
- 94% of Australians have at least One Risk Factor for heart disease.
- 59% of Australians have been Touched by heart disease.
- Yet only 3% of Australians have had a Full Heart-Health Assessment in the past 12 months.
