Know Your Real Risk of Heart Attack: Is The Single Biggest Killer Lurking In You And What To Do About It
by Warrick Bishop
What if you could plan NOT to have a heart attack? Dr Warrick Bishop, a widely renowned practicing cardiologist, is on a mission to help patients do just that. He’s spoken on TEDx stages and sat on countless interviews, including 60 Minutes and ABC Radio, delivering eye-opening insights that have enabled patients to have meaningful conversations about their heart health with their doctors and valuable information on life-changing technological advancements that could impact patients’ health. A number of years ago, a patient Dr. Warrick treated, wasn’t informed about heart attack prevention... He died from a heart attack, on the side of the road, and Dr. Warrick felt responsible for his death which ultimately leads to his work in heart attack prevention. Dr. Warrick was driving to work one day when he stopped at some commotion by the side of the road. A runner had collapsed on the road from a heart attack. Dr. Warrick tried to resuscitate the man but he died. After trying to resuscitate this man, Dr. Warrick realized, in shock and horror that this was a patient that he had spoken with a few years back. A couple of years before this incident, Dr. Warrick had reassured this man, after a series of tests, that he didn’t have to worry about a heart attack. In hindsight, Dr. Warrick realized that he could have saved this mans life if he had to know more about heart attack prevention. This experience started him on a journey to inform and help the world prevent heart attacks... By using both advocacy and the latest in emerging technologies for earlier detection and assessment of those at risk for heart attack. If you or someone you know is near the age of 40, have a family history of heart attacks, or are worried about a heart attack then you should read this book... It just may save your life or the life of somebody you love.
