Hi, my name is Dr. Warrick Bishop and I'm a cardiologist. Welcome to my Healthy Heart Minute
One of the things we deal with in cardiology is palpitations, and that's an awareness of the heart beating and thumping. There's lots of causes of that and often we think about palpitations as being really a problem related to the heart, an electrical problem related to the heart, and to a large degree that's exactly what they are.
But occasionally, external influences, particularly stress, can really impact the body so much that if you like the stress is represented by funny heartbeats. And this is a case, not infrequently with some patients who, for various reasons, in a very stressful situations, and their stress comes out in their awareness of their heart beating irregularly. It's an important component of care for those individuals, to understand what's going on in their lives.
I've got a podcast attached to this, which was actually a learning story from nearly twenty plus years ago, when I first started practicing as a consultant. Check it out because there a little bit of humor in there.
I'm going to wish you the very best. From the healthy heart network, we want you to live as well as possible, for as long as possible. Take care until next time. Bye for now.
