    "A Healthy Heart" with Dr Adrian Cheong

    "A Healthy Heart" with Dr Adrian Cheong

    Dr Adrian Cheong is a Cardiologist at the “The Matilda International Hospital” in Hong Kong. He graduated from the University of Oxford and spent time working in the UK and France before returning to Hong Kong.
     He is focused on looking after all heart-related conditions. His main areas of interest include minimally invasive surgery on arteries, viens and valves.
     Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) have been the leading course of death globally over the years with an estimated 17.9 million in 2019(WHO). It is important to detect CVD as early as possible and we discuss this in the podcast. We also discuss the classical signs of a heart attack and what are some actionable behaviours to limit the risks.

    Timings
    3:36 I had no idea I would become a cardiologist...
    4:56 You can see the patient from beginning to end ... that's the most satisfying thing about being a cardiologist...
    6:40 The most fundamental part of being a doctor... helping people to understand what their bodies are doing...
    8:50 Cardiovascular diseases have been the number 1 killers in the developed world... for many many years now...
    10:18 The heart which beats 100,000 times a day... there will be some water and tear...
    11:00 The most obvious cases would be heart attack...
    12:34 Sometimes these operations take 30 mins, 1 hour... a patient can be walking out of hospital 2 days later...
    13:50 Classical signs of heart attack ...
    16:12 An annual "Health Check" ... will highlight risk factors... especially when you hit your late 30s... early 40s
    18:03 Stress puts pressure on the heart...
    19:03 Preventative medicine is very difficult... to be disciplined...
    23:37 Help the patients help themselves ...
    24:27 "Things you should be doing" ...
    30:37 I love my job ... I haven't had a holiday for one and a half years...
    35:00 The biggest motivation is success in treatment...
    36:43 I saw a lot of interesting cases... rare cases...different symptoms...
    38:00 With digital technology, modern medication, I am betterable to manage patients...
    42:33 A checkup at least once a year ... especially after the watershed age of 40...
    44:26 It's the setbacks that make us stronger...
    45:06 My medical training was long, it was tough... constantly situations that we had to diffuse... I need to look at these things from a dissociated point of view... not be affected...

    MTR Quotation
    "Take a day off
    Do something you enjoy
    It'll make you Healthier"

    Takeaways from the podcast.
    1.     A regular health check is a must and will highlight risk factors. These tests become important in your late 30’s and early 40’s. Age of 40 is a milestone.
    2. Things you should be doing
    - Being happy, relaxed and reducing stress
    - Look at your Diet – what you eat.
    - Reduce the frequency of eating out.
    - Incorporate exercise into your daily routine.
    - Get adequate sleep.
    - A coach can help you to build good habits.
    3.     The classical signs of a heart attack to be aware of include, severe chest pain, crushing tightness in the chest, sometimes goes up into the neck, sometimes arm feels throbbing, especially the left arm, stomach pain, palpitations, shortness of breath. If you have any of these signs take-action quickly.
    4.     Improvements in technology and techniques means that the likelihood of surviving a Cardio Vascular Disease has improved dramatically. Operations may take 1/2hr and a patient can be walking out of hospital just 2 days later.
