What Is This Book About?

As a cardiologist, I have not yet met a patient who expected to have a problem; patients do not put into their diaries “possible problem with my heart next week”.

Taking a picture of the coronary arteries using CT (computed tomography – x-rays are deflected at very high speed using enormous magnets to acquire images that are then reconstructed) to see the health of the arteries, is not new, it just isn't done routinely. Yet, by using these advances specialists, GPs and patients can be ahead of the cardiovascular health game.

Very important information!

I found this book thought very provoking. It presents how the one of the most important indicators of poor Heart Health is overlooked by most health professionals. It is a must if you would like to understand how to discover your own level of heart attack risk.

Excellent evaluation process to avoid harmful medicines and know your real risk

Dr. Bishop exploits the Calcium Score scanning to make sure all patients get the safest and most appropriate treatment for their unique characteristics. This book has been a tremendous help to me in negotiating the best course of action for my wife and I. The doctors are hell bent on sticking to the age old guidelines from the institutions. Having this information allowed me to make sound medically valid arguments, and get the tests we really need.

Being informed and proactive may save your life

Doctor Warrick Bishop is passionate about his field. With this can come a certainty that can be off-putting to those with a different view. He doesn’t let this deter him. I found his treatment clear, succinct and built on a solid experiential and medical basis. The almost confrontational title of his book, “Have You Planned Your Heart Attack?” captures the no-nonsense approach he has to this topic. Put simply, whilst many doctors play it safe using solely traditional diagnostic approaches, with these supported by the Australian Medicare system, Doctor Warrick successfully explains why more modern analytical tools, such as using a computed tomography coronary angiogram, that is available via referral on his website through to most radiologists, can identify potentially terminal heart issues that are not detected using the traditional approach. His book is beautifully put together and presented, with great illustrations and written in simple language. For anyone who wants to know more about this area of their health, I highly recommend Doctor Warrick’s work and books.

This book should be in every general practitioner’s personal library…and waiting room!

“HAVE YOU PLANNED YOUR HEART ATTACK?” by Dr. Warrick Bishop

Planning Your Heart Attack? An intriguing title! While sitting in Warrick’s waiting room for my husband’s cardiac appointment, I spotted the book. A few minutes spent leafing through it convinced me to purchase a copy on the spot!
​This book is a fascinating, well presented, thoroughly researched treatise in lay terminology, of the preventability of coronary heart disease, utilising proven, painless, affordable testing…a proactive solution to today’s escalating rate of cardiac pathology, particularly in the ‘young and fit’.
​Warrick, a highly qualified, much published author, employs humour and colourful graphics to illustrate the effectiveness of his theory in a most engaging way. Considering our severely overloaded health system, large scale implementation of his philosophy might not only benefit those at risk, but could mitigate problems such as ambulance ramping, lack of beds and overworked staff.
