Trying to maintain a healthy heart has become more difficult in the wake of COVID-19. While the pandemic has increased remote tele-health, there are glaring vulnerabilities due to a lack of real-time cardiac monitoring. Heart attacks are on the rise as a result of patients ignoring symptoms, staying home and not going to the hospital. COVID related stress has caused a surge in cardiac health issues. Additionally, some recovering COVID patients have since developed heart issues related to the virus. As a result, the need for real-time cardiac monitoring is more important than ever.

Dr. Waqaas Al-Siddiq has been at the forefront of remote monitoring solutions. He is the founder and CEO of Biotricity, developer of advanced remote cardiac monitoring technology. Waqaas believes COVID-19 has accelerated the ongoing shift in the health landscape from a reactive system to a prevention, personalized and more efficient tech-based system.

Academically, he was distinguished for his various innovative designs in digital, analog, embedded, and micro-electro-mechanical products.

Waqaas has held several high-level design positions in IBM, AMD, and Intel. His achievements have been numerous in both the technical and academic world. Coupled with this, Waqaas has vast experience in leading various groups through his board experience and executive roles within start-ups, mid-sized companies, and non-profits.

  2. What kinds of procedures are you seeing now versus prior to the pandemic—and are the procedures surgical or a combination of non-invasive and minimally invasive?
  3. Are men getting plastic surgery procedures more now or about the same and is that changing for men?
  4. What kinds of tools do you have to show people what they can realistically expect from a procedure?

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Terry Moore discuss the following:

TIP: People try all kinds of crazy routines and habits to lead the healthiest lives possible, mentally and physically. Triathlons, taking psychedelic drugs, etc. These all lead to intense brain experiences, but they won’t bring the heightened brain activity and clarity that 40hz light therapy will give you as it cleans your brain. It can also be simply adopted into any daily routine without disrupting your current day to day activities.
