KING OF HEARTS | The Cardiac Centre Founder Dato Dr Leslie Lam
The heart is one of the most important organs in our body. It is the engine room which sustains life, pumping blood through a 97,000km long network of vessels in our body. Our heart works ceaselessly, beating 100,000 times day and 40 million times a year. In total, this tireless organ clocks up total of three billion heartbeats over average lifetime. It keeps our body freshly supplied with oxygen and nutrients, while clearing away harmful waste matter. It is the centre of our blood delivery system; it is central to our life. Thus, If our heart ever encounters any problems, we would want only the best heart doctor look after this delicate and precious organ of ours.
