Tackling Heart Issues in Athletes - Webchat

Post by mikenall on Wed Aug 27, 2014 9:54 pm

I'm guessing it's no coincidence that Cleveland Clinic just announced their new sports cardiology dept. and also just posted this upcoming webchat.

Sports Cardiology - Tackling Heart Issues in Athletes
Wednesday, September 10, 2014 - 12 Noon (Eastern Time)

I've posted questions on several of their webchats previously and can think of 6 or 8 I could ask on this one.  I will probably post a least one question but don't think they would appreciate 6 or 8, so if anyone else is interested in questioning them the link to register is:

http://chat.clevelandclinic.org/chatpage.aspx?chatid=1668

The registration process is fairly painless and you can login and post questions well in advance of the actual session.  In fact l would probably recommend that.  If you can't watch the chat as it progresses you can read the transcript later.  I know several of us have posted on these before (I recognized the IDs).

I'll be curious to see what kind of response they get to this subject.  I don't know how many people like us are out there that will respond to this.  Should be interesting.

I am registered to attend this, but I now have a conflict. Would you be able to summarize your questions and responses?

I don't know if I'll be able to attend this either, but a transcript will be provided at some point after the chat, and I'll make sure I find it and post it. I really don't "think" followup questions can be addressed in this format anyway, so it is just as useful (and probably quicker) to just read it later. I posted 3 questions - one about the dreaded beta blocker... one about pacer lead wires and distance swimming, and one about high fitness levels masking symptoms associated with mitral valve regurg, all personal issues for me. I'll be curious to see if they all get addressed, and what other questions are asked.

Thanks Mike. I'd be interested in responses to each of your questions. Especially swimming with my ICD wires. I want to return to triathlons next year.

I posted a question and got a response that was similar to what my main cardiologist had told me and I generally believe, but it doesn't match what cardiac rehab told me, or what many people here follow. Interesting that it was also recommended that I follow up with a sports cardiologist. I'm wondering how many sport cardiologists there are in the entire world, and how you go about finding one.

EugeneRunner: I'm a runner who had an MI and a stent. I've received exactly opposite advice from various cardiology professionals about what type of running is okay vs. dangerous. One group says fast running is bad because of the high heart rates, but marathons are fine. Another group says short races are fine, but I shouldn't run marathons because the length of the event causes more heart stress than a sprint at maximum heart rate. Which one is right?

Gordon_Blackburn,_PhD: The higher intensity shorter burst activity has been demonstrated to be safe in post MI patients. Although historically we have shied away from high intensity exercise. With longer distances such as marathons we do see increased stress on the entire body including the heart. Although we do not have conclusive evidence as to long term impact of this we have seen enzyme leaks at the end of marathon races and evidence of myocardial scarring in endurance athletes.
You should follow up with a sports cardiologist to determine your specific situation and what would be best for you.

Thanks for report "EugeneRunner". Like some of the others, I was unable to attend and look forward to receiving the recording.
