We love hearing through social media how our patients are getting on with life after a cardiac event or living with ongoing heart health concerns.

Delighted to see professional skateboarder @vwboomerdog Nick 'Boomer' back skateboarding just 7 weeks after a heart attack, cardiac arrest & being in Monash intensive care unit on life support.

Former Director of MonashHeart & public face of the Heart Foundation 'Warning Signs' of heart attack media campaign Professor Ian Meredith co-authored a paper published this week in the Medical Journal of Australia which found that the 'Warning Signs' public campaign was associated with a important 10.7% increase in people with suspected heart attack calling an ambulance and reduced deaths due to cardiac arrest.

So learn the warning signs of heart attack (chest pain, pressure, discomfort or tightness along with shortness of breath, nausea, sweating and or dizziness or light-headedness), call 000 and survive.

The sooner you get treatment the better. Remember, it's OK to call 000.

David Williamsi thought of these commercials when i was having those symptoms which prompted me to call an ambulance immediately. I was having a heart attack. Saved my life for sure.

The cardiac rhythm management (heart rhythm) service went from strength to strength in 2016.

Not only were a number of Victorian, Australian & world first initiatives implemented but there was also a 1.2% increase in patient access to the dedicated CRM cardiac cath laboratory, with almost 1,100 device & electrophysiology studies performed.

Another 241 additional patients received an echocardiogram (heart ultrasound) last year.

A total of 16,790 echo's were performed across our 3 service sites.

This is a tremendous team effort from our highly skilled sonographers & cardiologists.

Site visit to the stunning new Bendigo Hospital due to open on 24 January.

Restful garden patios for patients & staff, thoughtful design of inpatient bedrooms, lovely use of colour to assist in patient healing and recovery.

Many useful learnings for the Victorian Heart Hospital project.
