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”. Yet, what if we could be forewarned about, or prepared for, a potential problem with our coronary arteries? … What if we could plan NOT to have heart attack?    

Have You Planned Your Heart Attack? is the first-of-its-kind, offering a balanced and referenced discussion of coronary risk assessment using modern technology. 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.

Informative and thought provoking, a conversation in health that must be had.

Having a back ground in health care I found this book to be informative and interesting.
Maintaining the health of people and the provision of health care in order to best achieve this goal is a complex and fascinating subject, one that requires insight, understanding, examination and reflection. In his book Dr Bishop examines his sphere of expertise and poses the question are we doing the best we can to keep people as healthy as we can? Along the way he challenges the status quo and proposes that conversations must be had in order to make sure we are making health care the best it can be. By having common sense discussions and making best health outcomes the a number one priority, Dr Bishop proposes that perhaps we can do better, a message in my books that is always worth consideration. Well done.

Good news or not so good news

If you have a heart, this book is for you. Although the content of the book might have a measurable impact on the medical and medical insurance industries, it has been written for the man and woman in the street. The book does not make use of scare tactics, but rather educates the reader in a logical and structured manner. The message is simple, there is CT scanning technology available today that can inform the patient whether he or she is at risk of having a heart attack in the next 5 to 10 years. This informs the patient of a possible incident before it happens. The CT scanning approach to heart care moves the patient (you and me) away from statistical analysis (high blood pressure, cholesterol levels, family history, etc.) to specific knowledge about the condition of the patient heart, Good news or not so good news, wouldn't you want to know? Read the book.

High Cholesterol - what we need to know

I'm no medic but this book gave me the information I had been looking for. High cholesterol doesn't automatically mean statins for life - there are alternatives to be explored. Containing enough medical information for those who want that level, the book was easy enough to follow for those of us who aren't so bothered! Dr Warrick Bishop clearly has a passion for getting heart scans accepted into mainstream medicine and reading this book you can see why. As the subtitle of the book says, ' this book may save your life'. Well worth a read before your first heart attack!
