We had a scare several weeks ago when Tony passed out post-workout at Life Time Fitness. His resting heart rate was very low (43 bpm) and likely the reason he fainted. Some athletes are so conditioned they have resting heart rates that low without cause for concern. But my husband didn’t quite fit into that category. He was sent home with a Holter monitor and told NOT to excercise until he followed up with a cardiologist.
We met with the cardiologist last week and after reviewing the [normal] Holter monitor results, he concluded that dehydration was the likely cause of Tony’s fainting and breathing issues. (He also referred Tony to a sleep clinic to evaluate him for OSA.) If Tony continues to have trouble we will follow-up with the cardiologist for further testing.
So that is hopefully that.
Thank you for your prayers and concern!
