Our Recent What's Up Doc?
"Keeping Your Heart Healthy" with Dr. Christopher Howes



Dr Christopher Howes


Sept. 23, 2016. Guest speaker Christopher Howes, MD, medical director Interventional Cardiology, Greenwich Hospital and attending physician Yale New Haven Hospital Interventional Cardiology. Dr. Howes spoke about "Keeping Your Heart Healthy."

Guests shared lunch and learned about cardiovascular disease. The risk factors for vascular disease, coronary artery/heart disease, stroke and peripheral arterial disease are: increased age, diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, tobacco use, genetic predisposition (family history), and protein in the urine or reduced kidney function. Annual physical examinations can help identify potential risk factors.

Pay attention to warning signs of a heart attack and remember timing is everything. Dr. Howes says that chances of survival are dramatically increased if blockages are treated within 90 minutes. Patients who receive immediate treatment, such as emergency angioplasty, lower their mortality rates from an acute heart attack by one third.
