I’m not a “doomsdayer”. I’m not a pessimist. And, I’m not a hoarder.

Over the past few weeks, I have received several important questions about coronavirus, COVID-19 and heart valve disease. For that reason, I just started a new educational resource dedicated to the coronavirus at this link.

It is hard to believe that 14 years ago this Saturday, December 21, 2005, I was being rolled into an operating room for my heart valve surgery at USC Medical Center in Los Angeles.

I just received a great question from Mario about heart function, potential symptoms and high altitudes. In his email, Mario asked me, “Hi Adam – I have a question about my heart. I just got back from Lake Tahoe, California. I was in the casino and noticed that I was getting short of breath. Is altitude something I should worry about? Does altitude impact heart valve function? Thanks! Mario”.

As heart disease patients, we receive advice – from our friends, from our family and, most importantly, from our medical team.

Something special recently happened! More than 50 patients and their care partners traveled to Edwards Lifesciences, a leading heart valve manufacturer in Irvine, California, to meet each other, to share their stories and drive helpful insights for Edwards, and to inspire action within our community – the heart valve patient community.
