In Australia, there’s a heart attack every 8 minutes and a fatal heart attack every 26 minutes.
Half of patients have no warning symptoms.
Of the fatalities, almost half die before they can get to a hospital.
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in our community. Sadly in about 50% of cases, a heart attack can suddenly strike a well person who has had no knowledge of an underlying heart disorder and who has had no warning symptoms.
About a third of patients having heart attacks will die and about half of these cases will result in sudden death with no time to get to a hospital. There is more than one such case every hour in Australia.
The vast majority of heart attack victims would never have had a prior thorough assessment by a GP or a cardiologist. If they had, they would have been alerted to the risk which would have prompted the instigation of an appropriate management and lifestyle plan to reduce this risk. Corporate Cardiac Care has been designed by preventative cardiologists to address this.
It is highly recommended that executives with a score of 3 or more on the risk profile calculator undergo the Corporate Cardiac Care heart screen program. To make a booking for an initial consultation, please contact your HR department.
