Dr. Chito Permejo, a cardiology intensivist at the Philippine Heart Center, said the off-label use of pharmacologic therapies to treat COVID-19 in patients with cardiac issues must be done with caution. He discussed this and many more in “COVID-19 and the Heart”, the eighth episode of UP’s STOP COVID DEATHS webinar series streamed on June 12.

Q. What are the warning signs of an impending stroke or heart attack?
Cabral:These warning signs are late in coming. When you see a warning sign, it’s too late already. You should instead prevent these warning signs by keeping the blood pressure under control, not smoking, eating a balanced diet, and exercising as much as you can tolerate. Just live a healthy life; that is the best way of preventing strokes and heart attacks.
