Hi, my name is Dr Warrick Bishop and I'm a cardiologist. Look, I'd like to tell you a quick story about a couple of interesting cases I had and they occurred fairly close together.
It turns out they were both emergency workers, both these men looked fit and well. One of them had had a heart attack and one of them was soon to have a heart attack, based on all the information we collected, including scanning his heart. The message is, these guys looked fit and well on the outside. And what I can tell you is that looking at someone on the outside doesn't always tell the whole story. So please make sure you get a checkup. Check your blood pressure, check your sugar, check your cholesterol and have a talk with your doctor about whether you are the sort of person who needs scanning on your heart to be more precise. Because I can tell you these emergency workers, one of them had their own emergency, the other we've just avoided, and we don't know what's going on until we look.
I've got a podcast on the very same topic just below. So if you're interested, there's more information there. Enjoy. Until next time, I wish you the very best and please don't die from a heart attack. Goodbye.
