Welcome to Dr. Warrick's Podcast Channel. Warrick is a practicing cardiologist and author with a passion for improving care by helping patients understand their heart health through education work believes educated patients get the best health care to discover and understand the latest approaches and technology in heart care and how this might apply to you or someone you love.
Hi, my name's Dr Warrick Bishop, and I'm a cardiologist, I got a couple of tips for you to get the very best health care you can possibly get.
First of all, own your medications. Know exactly what you're on because medication confusion can lead to people in hospital with complications. My strong recommendation is you write out a really nice clear list and you put that list preferably with your Medicaid card in your wallet because what if you ever in an accident your unconscious and taken to hospital? The doctors there could open your wallet to try and identify you and find a list that tells a story of your medical issues. Hallelujah. That can make all the difference for your care. What if you were on a blood thinner? How helpful would it be if they knew that you were on that sort of medication? The other tip I've got for you is I have patients being told by their neighbours, by their mechanic, by their vet what the best care should be for their particular condition. Well, if I could recommend, listen to your specialist and get the best advice from the best people.
I've done a podcast on the very same below. So please have a listen and enjoy. In the meantime, know your tablets. Take care. And please don't die from a heart attack. Goodbye.
