Hi, my name's Dr Warrick Bishop and welcome to my Healthy Heart Minute. A couple of important but quick words on secondary prevention.  

What is that mean? Second, for secondary. So, second time. We're talking about people who have had one heart attack or one stent or one bypass, some event, and we want to prevent the second one secondary prevention.

Well, the opportunity to reduce the second event is absolutely gold. We can really drive risk factors down and make a real difference. In fact, probably the most significant difference in terms of reduction of risk when it comes to cardiovascular disease. But we often don't do it well. We don't pay as much attention to taking tablets as we should, aspirin or cholesterol, keeping our weight down, looking after exercise and diet. These are things that are really, really important. Even blood pressure gets forgotten, almost pushed aside.

Well, I've done a whole podcast on this, reflecting a fantastic document put together by Baker HDI. I'd really invite you to have a listen to that. If you have anyone who's a loved one, who's had problems with that and you want to know more or you've been affected yourself. Look, the link to that podcast is attached. Have a listen to that. Please enjoy. Til next time. Take care and bye for now.
