Dr Makki presented at Heartbeat last week. It was a fantastic informative night.
❤️ Instead of a presentation in heart topics, He engaged with the audience by a Question and answer session
So much was learned
Here are a few take home messages
❤️ One question I asked
If a person is on a blood thinner such as Eliquis or praxada or xarelto. Should they be on aspirin aswell
Unless they are up to 6 weeks post stinting
This is so common Dr Makki said
People are on aspirin for yrs and yrs, then started on a blood thinner - but the aspirin isn’t stopped
Check your prescription

A great informative night
Thanks again to Dr MakkiDr Haytham Makki, Consultant Interventional Cardiology from the Bon Secours Hospital Tralee was the guest speak at the Killarney HeartBeat Cardiac Support Group on the 30th of January last.
Dr Makki provided valuable insights and guidance on how we should care for our hearts. Dr Makki discussed the symptoms, treatment and diagnosis of heart disease and the risk factors associated with Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) such as smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, being overweight and inactivity and how lifestyle changes can improve heart health. It was an interactive and engaging event and Dr Makki was happy to take questions throughout the evening.
The feedback was amazing and described as a ‘night of information and support for all who came’. Dr Makki would like to thank Billy O’Sullivan for inviting him to speak on the night and also for the warm welcome he received.
If you would like Dr Makki to speak at an event you are organising please contact Breda McEllistrim on 086 8221207/0667149821 or email email@example.com ... See MoreSee Less
A busy, busy night last night at our first meeting of 2024. Huge attendance and the whole meeting was a Question & Answer session. Dr Makki was brilliant and made time afterwards for one-to-one time with people. Nurse Anna had a very busy time with the B.P clinic which she extended to after the meeting to make sure all who wanted to be checked were catered for.
Thanks to everyone who attended and special thanks to Nurse Anna and Dr Makki.
Watch out for details on our next meeting and guest speaker. ... See MoreSee Less
