Exercise / Fitness

 

Although regular exercise is essential to a healthy lifestyle, some athletes may be at risk for sudden cardiac death while partaking in rigorous physical activity. That’s why Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute and Atlantic Sports Health offer a sports cardiology program that can identify complex heart abnormalities before they become a tragedy on the field of play. Services include state-of-the-art cardiovascular imaging, stress tests, cardiopulmonary exercise tests and more. Based on individual results, our experts will provide education and recommendations for safe levels of physical activity.
