What's My Real Risk of Heart Attack?

Within cardiology terminology, we define the risk of a coronary artery event as “low”, “intermediate” or “high”. A low risk is considered a less than 10 percent chance of a coronary event within 10 years. A high risk is considered a greater than 20 percent chance of an event within 10 years. An intermediate risk is between 10 and 20 percent risk of an event within 10 years.

This means that, if we were to take a group of 100 people who were high-risk and follow them for 10 years, 20 or more of those people would have a coronary event or symptom.

But you still don't know precisely which group you're in!

About Doctor Warrick Bishop

Practicing Cardiologist, #1 Best Selling Author, and Keynote Speaker

Doctor Warrick Bishop is a practicing cardiologist, best selling author, and keynote speaker and who has a passion to help prevent heart disease on a global scale.

Warrick graduated from the University of Tasmania, School of Medicine, in 1988. He completed his advanced training in cardiology in Hobart, Tasmania, becoming a fellow of the Royal Australian College of Physicians.

A number of years ago something incredible, an amazing coincidence, happened that started Doctor Warrick Bishop on the mission to prevent heart attacks rather than try to cure them. He was driving to work one day when he stopped at a commotion by the side of the road. A fun runner had collapsed during a fun run with a heart attack. He helped in his resuscitation only to find out that had seen the very same man two years earlier and reassured him that he was fine.



  When it comes to the heart, being aware of your blood pressure and keeping it down, being aware of your cholesterol and dealing with it appropriately, undertaking regular exercise, not smoking and addressing other cardiovascular risks are all important for a safe journey through life.

However, on their own, they offer no guarantee of avoiding a heart attack, although they are likely to reduce the risk  

2 in 10 deaths from Coronary Artery Disease happen in adults less than 65 years old.


From a practical perspective, the two extremes of low risk and high or very high risk are the easiest to deal with. Low risk requires little more than reassurance, a plan for ongoing lifestyle care and consideration of the role of future reassessment. Similarly, high- or very high-risk features dictate that therapy should be undertaken. The grey area lies in intermediate risk. This is where an understanding is needed, not only of the limitation of the data that is available to guide us.

Statistics - Worldwide




Over 9,000,000 people worldwide die from heart disease each year.


257 Commercial Airline fatalities occurred in 2019.

1 fatal accident involving large commercial passenger planes for every 5.58 million flights.

We are happy to refer to low risk as up to a 10 percent chance within 10 years and not consider treatment, even though this could be expressed as a one percent chance per annum of having a major event. How would you react if, the next time you booked a commercial airline flight, you were told there was a one percent per annum chance of being involved in a crash, or a 10 percent chance of being involved in a crash over your next 10 years of flying?


Over 647,000 Americans die from heart disease each year—that’s 1 in every 4 deaths.

Someone has a heart attack every 40 seconds.


Know Your Real Risk Of Heart Attack


This book could save your life, or the life of someone close to you.

As a cardiologist, I have not yet met a patient who expected to have a problem; patients do not put into their diaries “possible problem with my heart next week”. Yet, what if we could be forewarned about, or prepared for, a potential problem with our coronary arteries? … What if we could plan NOT to have heart attack? Know Your Real Risk of Heart Attack is the first-of-its-kind, offering a balanced and referenced discussion of coronary risk assessment using modern technology.

This book will empower you as an individual to choose how you want to deal with your risk of the single biggest killer in the western world.
