At the heart of life #1

One thing many of us think of when we think of an important organ in the body that needs to work is the heart. Our heart is an amazing organ.

From the moment it begins beating until the moment it stops, the human heart works tirelessly. In an average lifetime, our heart will apparently beat more than two and a half billion times, without ever taking a rest.

The amazing thing about our heart is that it provides the power we need to live. That’s probably why this life-sustaining power has, throughout time, had an air of mystery surrounding it. However technological advances over the years have found out so much about the heart that it’s not such the mystery it once was. So much so, that these days, when we find there is a problem of some kind with our heart, doctors/surgeons are able to either repair or fix many problems without even needing to put the patient through major open-heart surgery.

There are of course still some heart problem that do still require the patient to undergo major open-heart surgery. But even that is not the huge risk that was in the past because, as I said earlier technological advances mean techniques and equipment used allows the surgeons to achieve so much better results for the patient than they used to.

Yes, open-heart surgery is still a very major and complex operation, but many procedures/surgeries done these days as far more common place than they used to be, so the chance of a good outcome for the patient is far more likely than once it used to be.

So if you find you have to undergo heart surgery, you can be assured that improved techniques and equipment, and recover strategies mean you will likely make a full recovery.

Your heart is a complex and amazing organ, so do all you can to look after it, as it needs to last your life-time.
