Rotary Club

Dr John England, cardiologist and author, gave an engaging presentation on heart health at the Rylstone Club. He explained that the “fluttering” of the heart (when the rhythm of the beats is uneven) if often a normal part of aging. “Much of this is not harmful. Only when the uneven beats are sustained, and especially if there is a feeling of tightness or a weight on the chest and an ache in the jaw or arm should immediate action be taken. Then you should call 000,” he said. While atypical heart beats are associated with aging there are a number of things that we can do to reduce the chance of heart disease. Dr England outlined these as: “Put less in the supermarket trolley. Australians have easy access to food that can lead to eating too much.” Rylstone Health One and the Rotary Club of Rylstone Kandos were delighted with the number of people who came to Dr England’s presentation. Elizabeth McKay, President of Rotary said it is really rewarding to have a group of interested people access information like this.
