The Heart Health Series: Get To Know Your Heart

By  |  0 Comments

Edwards Lifesciences is organising the Heart Health Series event: Get To Know Your Heart for participants to learn more about their heart and structure, and how important it is to care for their heart health.

In Singapore, 120 people in every 1 million are being treated for Aortic Stenosis, and 50 percent of untreated patients tend to die from the condition within 2 years of being diagnosed.

Aortic Stenosis is a progressive condition that causes the narrowing of the aortic valve opening, restricting blood flow from the left ventricle to the aorta, which in return, may also affect the pressure in the left atrium, and eventually cause heart failure. When the valve is damaged, it leads to its stiffening and inability to open and close adequately.

Get To Know Your Heart

Risk factors for Aortic Stenosis include increasing age, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, deformed aortic valve and family history.

During the event, Dr Chiam will talk about the different heart disease we are susceptible to, and how Aortic Stenosis is one of the rising silent killers. Participants will be able to understand the structure of the heart and valves, find out more about what can happen with an ageing heart, the symptoms of an unwell heart, what treatments and options are available for patients going through the disease and how to care for the heart.

Joining Dr Chiam will be Ms Diane Seto, a Senior Dietitian at Mount Elizabeth Hospital. With over six years of working experience as a clinical dietitian, she has wide experience in seeing patients with a variety of conditions including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity. Diane will be sharing about the ideal diet for good heart health and exactly what these foods are.
