Heart Valve Voice Celebrates Milestone: SLOW Symptom Awareness Video Reaches One Million Views

Published On: 31 May 2024Categories: News

Heart Valve Voice proudly announces that its educational video “SLOW” has reached an impressive milestone of one million views. The video, launched as part of a broader campaign to raise awareness about heart valve disease, aims to educate the public on recognising key symptoms through the acronym SLOW: Shortness of breath, Lightheadedness on exertion, feeling Older than your years, and Weary.

The video’s success underscores the critical need for increased awareness and early detection of heart valve disease, which affects nearly 1.5 million over 65s across the UK. By reaching this significant viewership milestone, Heart Valve Voice hopes to continue spreading vital information that can lead to timely diagnosis and treatment.

“The achievement of one million views for our SLOW video is a testament to the public’s growing awareness and interest in understanding heart valve disease,” said Wil Woan, Executive Director of Heart Valve Voice. “This milestone is not just a number; it represents countless lives potentially touched and saved through increased awareness. Our goal has always been to educate and empower individuals to recognise the symptoms early, and this incredible response shows we are making a meaningful impact.”

Chair of Heart Valve Voice, Phill Read, also expressed his excitement over the video’s success. “Heart valve disease is a common, serious but treatable condition. We know that early detection leads to better outcomes, and the success of our SLOW campaign underpins our commitment to improving outcomes. By reaching one million views, we are bringing essential information to the public. We are immensely proud of this achievement and grateful to everyone who has helped spread the word. It’s a powerful reminder of the importance of our work and the difference we can make together.”

Heart Valve Voice remains committed to continuing its efforts in raising awareness, supporting patients, and advocating for improved treatment options. The SLOW video is a pivotal part of these efforts, providing easily accessible information to a broad audience and encouraging individuals to seek medical advice if they experience any of the highlighted symptoms.
