Dr Warrick Bishop graduated from the University of Tasmania, School of Medicine in 1988. He worked in the Northern Territory and subsequently commenced his specialist training in Adelaide, South Australia. He completed his advanced training in cardiology in Hobart, Tasmania, becoming a fellow of the Royal Australian College of Physicians in 1997.
He has worked predominately in private practise combined with public sessions. In 2009 Warrick undertook training in CT Cardiac Coronary Angiography, being the first cardiologist in Tasmania with this specialist recognition. This area of imaging fits well with Warrick’s interest in preventative cardiology.
Warrick has developed a particular interest in diabetic related risk of coronary artery disease, specifically related to eating guidelines and lipid profiles. He is a recognised examiner for the Royal Australian College of Physicians and is regularly involved with teaching of medical students and junior doctors.
Warrick is a member of the Clinical Issues Committee of the Australian Heart Foundation which provides input into issues of significance for the management of heart patients, a member of the Australian Atherosclerosis Society, and a participant on the panel of “interested parties” to develop a model of care and national registry for Familial Hypercholesterolaemia.
It is very likely that you or someone you love is one of the 30 million people worldwide who have the 'irregularly irregular' heartbeat of atrial fibrillation. Or, it is possible that you may be among the people who do not realise they have this highly unpredictable condition, the impact of which can range from inconvenience to blackout, heart failure or stroke. This book is a must-read for you.
What if we could plan NOT to have a heart attack?
'Heart Attack' is a layman's term referring to a narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries that can kill, or requires some form of medical intervention.
What if we could be forewarned about, or prepared for, a potential problem with our coronary arteries?
This book is not the next optimistic, self-help, low carb, cure-all approach to health but a proactive approach to cardiac disease prevention. It is the first-of-its-kind, offering a balanced discussion of coronary risk assessment which allows you to be ahead of the game about your own cardiovascular health. Wouldn’t you want to know, rather than guess, if the killer was lurking inside you?
