"'We're seeing a new era in medicine where we have to be more proactive with our health," said Jeffrey Osborn, Cardiologist, Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute.
...
"That number should be under 200 and surprisingly no more than 50% of Americans have that number under 200," said Osborn.
Next know your resting heart rate.
"We usually advise checking it in the wrist," said Osborn. "...and place it along the thumb line."
Doctor Osborn said the normal range for a resting heart rate is 50 -60 beats per minute.
"There's a thing called a heart beat theory that we talk about where mammals have kind of built into their hearts about 3 billion heart beats. You can use that up a lot quicker if you're resting heart rate is say 100 then if its 50 or 60," Osborn said.
...
"If you're above that, it's something you can track and watch, it may be something you need treatment for," said Osborn.
...
"Keep an eye on that kind of thing because you could be either a pre-diabetic or an actual diabetic, and like I say about half of all diabetics actually don't know they have diabetes," said Osborn.
If you keep up on your cholesterol, resting heart rate, blood pressure, CRP and blood sugar numbers, you may have to make doctors visits a little less often.
"The more you know, the better we will be able to take care of ourselves," Osborn said.

"It's kind of like having his own paramedic squad in his chest," said Dr. Jeff Osborn, a cardiologist at the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute.

Dr. Jeff Osborn, cardiologist with the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute, talks about the subcutaneous implantable cardiac defibrillator at the Intermountain Medical Center in Murray on Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014.
...
No wires, Osborn said, can be a good thing, especially for younger patients.
"There are some downsides to having leads or wires directly touching the heart," the doctor said, adding that wires have a "finite life" and may need to be replaced, which is an even higher risk procedure and involves another open-heart surgery.
Wires in the heart can also become infected, causing even more risk for the patient.
"This new device offers less risk with the same life-saving benefit," Osborn said.
...
Osborn said the system's action would be similar to having the two paddles of the automated external defibrillator placed on the chest at all times, "but buried under the skin."
...
Most episodes of cardiac arrest, Osborn said, are caused by the rapid and/or chaotic activity of the heart, known as ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation.
Recent estimates reveal that approximately 850,000 people in the United States are at risk of sudden cardiac arrest and would benefit from an implantable cardioverter defibrillator device, which has been used to monitor and assist hearts since the early '80s but remain unprotected.
Osborn said the devices are known life savers, and new technology is upping the game.

"The answer is 'Yes,' " said Dr. Jeffrey Osborn, an Intermountain Medical Center physician who specializes in heart rhythm disorders. "There are people that have a condition called Long QT syndrome that where emotions can actually lead them to fatal arrythmias," said Osborn, an electrophysiologist.
While death from fright is possible, that outcome is quite rare because people with this disorder are in a small minority of patients diagnosed with Long QT syndrome, said Osborn. The disorder can cause fast, chaotic heartbeats. In some patients, a heart may beat erratically for so long that it can cause sudden death, according to the Mayo Clinic.
"It's an electrical phenomenon when the heart goes into what we call ventricular tachycardia followed by ventricular fibrillation. When ventricular fibrillation occurs, the heart is basically wriggling at 200-plus beats per minute. Unless you're a humming bird, that's not very healthy," Osborn said.

Cardiologist Jeffrey Osborn, at Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, is Olsen's doctor and works with the trial.
"It's able to tell us exactly what her body status is without guessing," Osborn said.
...
According to Osborn, "the implants will revolutionize care if applied to the outpatient setting. It actually might be more predictive earlier on of a heart failure episode that's developing."
The IMC cardiologist believes what he is seeing in these early clinical trials is just the beginning. While many kinds of internal sentries are packing more and more electronics, they're also getting smaller and smaller.
"I think eventually, in the not too distant future, monitors will be injected into patients allowing us to watch them from home or from afar - little monitors that could tell us exactly what their heart rhythm is doing," Osborn said.
And not just heart rhythms. Future microscopic devices could float in the bloodstream monitoring almost anything that's measurable in every part of the body.
Osborn believes future heart sentries might even be tied into a GPS system that would automatically hail an ambulance when a patient's in trouble.
