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.

The episode discusses several studies presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress, including one finding that completely opening blocked arteries in older heart attack patients led to better outcomes. Another study surprisingly showed iron infusion did not help heart failure patients as expected. The episode also mentions that ablation seems to be more effective for atrial fibrillation in advanced heart failure cases.

Managing weight through drugs like Ozempic was found to benefit those with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction as well. Throughout, Doctor Warrick emphasizes the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach to genetic heart conditions.


  • Complete revascularization for older heart attack patients (over age 75) provided better outcomes than just treating the culprit lesion.
  • Treating atrial fibrillation through ablation procedures can be more effective for patients with end-stage heart failure.
  • New ESC guidelines on cardiomyopathy emphasize a multidisciplinary approach integrating genetics, imaging, and cardiology.
  • Genetic testing allows for better screening and targeting of care for specific genetic forms of heart disease.
  • A study on iron infusion found no benefits for heart failure patients, contrary to previous evidence. More research is needed.
  • Weight loss drugs like Ozempic can provide benefits for obese heart failure patients by improving symptoms.
  • Checking risk factors like weight, cholesterol, blood pressure is important for better heart health outcomes.
  • One person dies of a heart attack every 20 minutes in Australia and every 60 seconds in the US.
  • The virtualheartcheck.com.au website allows people to assess their heart attack risk and next steps.
  • Lifestyle changes like weight loss through drugs can improve quality of life for heart failure patients.

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. 

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.
