Imperfect Heart is a podcast designed for, hosted by and recorded with those affected by or involved with the care and support for those with the birth defect of a Myocardial Bridge. Interviews with healthcare professionals, support professionals and those navigating their way through the often challenging process of diagnosis and treatment are the focus of the content. It’s their stories that are meant to inform, educate and even entertain in an effort to insure hope for the listener that what they are experiencing is real, that they are not alone and that there is hope for relief from the varied symptoms of a Myocardial Bridge.



The host, Jeff Holden, has his own story to tell from symptom to diagnosis to treatment thus giving him insight and empathy as well as experience in the process of advocating for the patient. The program also seeks to make the healthcare industry more aware of the real symptoms of Myocardial Bridges with an aim to eliminate the gaslighting that is so prevalent around this defect and directly address the reality that Myocardial Bridges may be responsible for many more deaths from sudden cardiac arrest than previously thought. Early diagnosis and treatment could not only improve but may actually save lives when properly applied. More information can be found on the podcast website, www.myimperfectheart.com.

    What the Hell Just Happened?

    What the Hell Just Happened?

    In this very first episode of Imperfect Heart I take you on the steps of my journey starting with the recognition, albeit reluctantly, that there is something terribly wrong and as much as I hate to say it, I know it's my heart.  What transpires next is the quest to first identify or diagnose the problem and then figure out a way to a solution.  You'll meet my first Cardiologist, Dr. Rishi Menon, and the process and procedures we traveled to get us to the reality of the fact that what we were dealing with was not a normal situation.  The manifestations of what was happening to me didn't make sense and it was going to take a very different approach than something traditional.  Not to mention, I wasn't going to settle for something "familiar" in a solution when we didn't really know the root cause of my symptoms.  There were some remarkable twists and turns that eventually led to a logical next step in both the search for a cause and the probable fix.  And yes, for most of us, the words heart attack are difficult to say.  Especially if we believe we've lived a lifetime taking care of ourselves to extend that time of life.  Right?  Well, it all started with ... a heart attack.
