Alcohol Risk To My Heart

Drinking  alcohol (without moderation) can raise the levels blood (triglycerides), reduce our HDL “good” cholesterol, add to fatty build-up in artery wall, and increase our blood pressure.  As alcohol is energy dense and increases our caloric intake. Doing this continuously may lead to CVD risk factors-weight gain, increase blood pressure and risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Impact of Obesity on Outcomes of Pregnancy in Women with Heart Disease

Obesity increases the risk of maternal cardiovascular complications in pregnant women with heart disease. This modifiable risk factor should be addressed at the time of preconception counseling


Digital Health and Artificial Intelligence in Cardiology

Advances in digital health and particularly in artificial intelligence (AI) have led us very close to the true implementation of personalized/individualised medical treatment especially in Heart Disease. The year 2020 has brought an exponential increase of heart innovations using various forms of AI, from supervised machine learning to unsupervised deep learning, with applications across all domains of cardiovascular medicine. AI is now moving from research to implementation, affecting all aspects of clinical cardiology.
