Older athletes are pushing their bodies harder than ever in the hope that exercise will keep them healthy and strong into their later years. But The Haywire Heart is the first book to examine the latest findings and reveal a paradoxical truth: Too much exercise, especially at a high and sustained level, can damage your heart irreparably, and sometimes fatally.
The Haywire Heart shares the developing research into a group of conditions known as "athlete's heart", starting with a wide-ranging look at the symptoms and how to recognize your potential risk. Leading cardiac electrophysiologist and masters athlete Dr. John Mandrola explores the prevention and treatment of heart conditions in athletes like arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation and flutter, tachycardia, hypertrophy, and coronary artery disease. Case studies present vivid illustrations of the range of conditions facing athletes. A frank discussion of exercise addiction and comprehensive advice on how to talk with your doctor about your condition preface an encouraging review of the treatment options. Athletes will learn about heart irritants, training and rest modifications, effective medications, and safe supplements that can reduce the likelihood of heart damage during exercise.
The Haywire Heart is a ground-breaking and critically important guide to heart care for athletes. By protecting their hearts now and watching for the warning signs, athletes can avoid crippling heart conditions and continue to exercise and compete for years to come.
