Health Tip: Make Snow Days Heart-Safe

(HealthDay News) -- For some, strenuous winter activities can be hard on the heart. Simply walking through or shoveling snow can be especially dangerous for those with cardiovascular disease, the American Heart Association says.

To make snowy days safer, the AHA suggests:

  • Take breaks.
  • Learn the heart attack warning signs.
  • Avoid alcohol before and immediately after shoveling.
  • Dress warm and be aware of hypothermia.
  • Learn CPR.
