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.

Waqaas, is a serial entrepreneur, a former investment advisor and an expert in wireless communication technology. Academically, he was distinguished for his various innovative designs in digital, analog, embedded, and micro-electro-mechanical products. His work was published in various conferences such as IEEE and the National Communication Council.

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.

The Dangers of Saturated Fats with Dr. Evan Allen

The Dangers of Saturated Fats with Dr. Evan Allen

September 20, 2019

 

EvanAllen.jpg

 

Dr. Evan Allen, a board-certified physician in obesity and owner at Total Care Family Practice in Las Vegas, Nevada joins eHealth Radio and the Nutrition & Weight Management Channels to talk about the dangers of saturated fats.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Evan Allen discuss the following:

  1. How does the food industry purposefully mislead us?
  2. What are some success stories you've seen with patients who cut out saturated fat in their diet?
  3. If someone switches to a vegan diet, how quickly can they expect a recovery in their health?
  4. Why write this book now?
  5. What is one thing you want to tell other physicians with this book?

Tip: By minimizing the quantity of saturated fat in the diet, we can end heart disease and other ailments by practicing a lifestyle-first methodology, and reverting to medication and surgery as a last resort.


Dr. Evan Allen has been practicing medicine for a quarter century, and in that time, he’s opened two practices in Henderson, Nevada, and received board-certification from the American Board of Obesity Medicine. When Dr. Allen began to pay more attention to nutrition, the health of his patients improved. This discovery sent him on a search for a book like this one—a search that came up empty. With this book, Dr. Allen wants to give healthcare providers what he never had: a guide for talking to their patients about a healthy diet that’s low in saturated fat. Dr. Allen lives in Henderson with his son.

Unraveling the Mystery of AED Ownership Laws

Unraveling the Mystery of AED Ownership Laws

October 17, 2017

 

Sara_Henn_-_500x500.jpg

 

Sara Henn, Customer Care Coordinator with AED Superstore, the world’s largest distributor of automated external defibrillators joins eHealth Radio and the Heart Health, Emergency Care & Health News Channels to discuss unraveling the mystery of AED Ownership Laws.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Sara Henn discuss the following:

  • We have been hearing a lot about automated external defib-rillators recently and they seem to be popping up in more and more public places, but I have heard there are some who are concerned about buying an AED because each state has laws governing AED ownership, and they are all a little different.  What can you tell us about that?
  • Let’s talk about each of those components - the first one you mentioned was oversight by a physician - what, exactly, does that mean?  Do I have to have a doctor come in and check my AED?
  • You mentioned training. Is this just training on the AED itself?  And are the people who are formally trained the only ones who should use the device?
  • So notification of emergency medical services - this is your local 911 center, right?  Should you need to let them know you have an AED?
  • So the last thing you mentioned is maintenance - I am assuming this is maintenance of the device itself?
  • It sounds like there could be a lot to remember with regard to AED laws - do you have any recommendations to make life easier for our listeners?

 

Sara Henn is proud to be a part of Allied 100, LLC. She has been with the company for 10 years and her current role is Customer Care Coordinator.  Her primary function is to train and inform the customer care team.
