Join our free and highly engaged Facebook community to discuss Heart Health From Prevention to Cure and Everything in Between! Doctor Warrick regularly interacts with the members and does monthly live Q&A sessions.
As with the monthly healthy heart network live shows, what I try to do is cover a patient case, or a patient story. I try to share a bit of education, and I try to answer a patient question that I've had recently, which I hope that you will find intersting, and hope that it will relate to you. So today, the patient story is about a man who is young and had a heart attack.
Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is a common medical condition that arises from a problem within the electrical system of the heart. Although it is widespread - 30 million sufferers worlwide - one of its peculiarities is that many sufferers are not aware they have it and it is discovered after a collapse or as an 'incidental finding', for example, when a patient's pulse is being monitored in association with surgery or other medical procedure.
Hi, it's Warrick Bishop here, and welcome to the Healthy Heart Network Live Monthly Online Show. So, thanks for joining us today. I'm looking to cover a couple of things. I thought I would talk about Vitamin D, I thought I would talk about plaque gets into coronary arteries, and I thought I would share with you a patient case from just recently.
Atrial Fibrillation, commonly known as AF, kills three times as many people as car accidents each year in the western world.
Although the world's focus is on COVID-19, people who suffer a heart condition should continue to treat and manage their circumstances as a priority.
I believe we can prevent heart attack. We can put in place strategies to reduce risk. We can literally plan to change your future. I call it Healthy Heart Network. Greetings and hello to everyone on this Tuesday night, 21st of April. I'm delighted you're able to join me, if you by any chance miss this presentation, you will, of course, be able to catch up with it later on. We will rerun it and give you the chance to do that. It seems a little bit odd to be thinking about cardiovascular issues in the midst of this COVID challenge, this COVID crisis, however, it is really important to remember the importance of maintenance of other aspects of your health.

Welcome to the Healthy Heart Network Live Monthly show. This is part of my involvement in the Know Your Real Risk of Heart Attack facebook group. A month ago, I did my first facebook live show and it seemed well-received. People generally left positive remarks and I'm really pleased to say that a number of people left questions, and I'm going to look to address some of those today.
