Answer is ❀️ E. Hypertension. Cardiac Rehab will help people to understand their condition, recover from the surgery/procedure/heart attack, help you to make changes to your lifestyle to improve your heart health and reduce the risk of further heart problems.

And the answer is... ❀️ E. A and B. Bit of a tough one for you guys. An ICD is implanted under the skin much like a pacemaker. The ICD will monitor the heart’s rhythm, senses and detects rapid or slow heart rhythms such as Ventricular Fibrillation or Ventricular Tachycardia, treats abnormal rhythms with electrical therapy and then stores data for review later.

Welcome

Allied Health Thursday

We at NEFM are always look for ways to help with you and your family's health and wellbeing. We are working with some of our local allied health providers to give you some expert advice into some of your health issues. (if you are a local provider and would like to get involved, please contact the clinic)

This week, we have a post from Daniel Thomson, from Barefoot Lifestyle, about ways to lower your cholesterol

Simple ways to lower your cholesterol
- limit or avoid fatty meats, processed meats, chicken skin
- limit cream, butter
- be wise with your snack choices - often snack foods contain hidden fats which increase cholesterol. Think about things like potato chips, biscuits and sweets.
- try to stick to fruit (2-3 serves daily is a good start), unsalted nuts, wholegrain crackers like vita-weat with tomato
- eat more: nuts (5 palmfuls or more per week), plant seeds, and oily fish such as salmon/ sardines/ tuna (2-3+ times per week)
- use avocado as a spread and use drizzles of olive oil in/ on foods (aiming for 60ml per day)
If your diet or snack options could use some work, check in with an Accredited Dietitian for some practical advice. πŸ™‚
