Why our Staff Love Can You Die of a Broken Heart?:
Take a look at our most vital of vital organs, the heart, in a different way.
More than an intricate pump, the heart is, after the brain, the most affected by our emotions; the very symbol of our feelings made visceral. But how deep is this connection? In this fascinating book, Sydney heart and lung surgeon, Dr Nikki Stamp, examines takosubo cardiomyopathy, famously known as broken heart syndrome, where the end of a relationship has led to heart attack and death. She finds that social connection has a huge influence on our physiology, affecting the heart via hormonal surges, inflammation and behavioural change. Everything is connected.
This highly readable book is all about being a whole-of-life human, and seeing ourselves in a holistic way. More than the sum of our parts, our flesh can express our character and longings, and be read as such. Doctors and patients would do well to heed this approach.
Dr Stamp’s relentless enthusiasm for the heart is, dare I say it, contagious. Her tour of the various factors in heart health, from risk factors to gender and nutrition, is surprising and highly entertaining. Full of anecdotes and awe-inspiring glimpses of modern surgery, Can You Die of a Broken Heart? is fresh, and even fun
In the vein of Gut and The Brain That Changes Itself, a gripping exploration into the inner workings of the heart and how emotions and lifestyle affect every beat
When actress Debbie Reynolds died a day after her beloved daughter, Carrie Fisher, the world diagnosed it as 'heartbreak'. But what's the evidence? Does emotional upheaval affect the heart? Can love, or chocolate, really heal our heart problems? And why do we know so much about heart attacks in men, when they are more fatal in women?
Heart and lung surgeon Dr Nikki Stamp takes us into the operating theatre, explaining what she sees in patients with heart complications and how a life-saving transplant works. Stamp fell in the love with the heart as a child and continues to be fascinated by its workings and the whole-of-life experiences that affect it.
Rich with anecdotes, and insights for maintaining heart health, Can You Die of a Broken Heart? is a blockbuster from a uniquely positioned young specialist.
