Heart News

From Dr Nasis’ desk

The human heart beats approximately 2.5 billion times over an average person’s lifetime (yes, 2,500,000,000 times!), pumping millions of litres of oxygen-rich blood to all parts of the body to keep us alive and allow the body to function. 

Given the heart’s endless lifelong workload, it is important that we learn more about it – especially things we can do to help it function optimally, things we should avoid that can harm it, and new developments or breakthroughs in ways to investigate and treat established heart problems.

To that end, every week, Dr Nasis will highlight important ways to optimise your heart health and update you on new research findings making their way into clinical practice that have captured his attention and may be of interest to you.
