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 ascending aortic aneurysms and their potential "silver lining" of lower rates of coronary artery disease. The host Doctor Warrick Bishop shares his experience with an ascending aortic aneurysm repaired through a Pairs procedure. While noting the importance of repairing aneurysms due to the high risk of rupture, he questions the clinical relevance of potentially lower coronary risks. The podcast also discusses a study finding that just 10 minutes of daily physical activity may help reduce anxiety. In summary, while ascending aortic aneurysms pose serious health risks, even minimal daily exercise may benefit mental wellbeing.


  • Doctor Warrick Bishop is a cardiologist and CEO of Healthy Heartnet. He gives podcasts on heart health topics like blood pressure, weight, cholesterol.
  • He had an ascending aortic aneurysm that was treated with a Pairs procedure, which involves a bespoke sleeve printed from a 3D image of the aorta.
  • A study found patients with ascending aortic aneurysms tended to have clear coronary arteries, called a "silver lining."
  • Possible reasons for clear arteries included reduced aorta intima thickness and lower LDL cholesterol.
  • An ascending aortic aneurysm needs attention if over 45mm and should be operated on by 55mm.
  • The common operation removes the affected section and grafts a replacement piece.
  • A study found 10 minutes of daily activity for 5 days a week reduced risk of anxiety.
  • Exercise has many benefits beyond physical health like better mood.
  • Listeners are encouraged to ask questions and share or subscribe to the podcast.
  • Healthy Heart Network offers membership for heart health information and risk assessment.

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.

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.
