Pediatric Cardiology – Day 9

Today I was assigned to the cardiac stress testing lab. You know those scenes of athletes hooked up to a bunch of wires and tubes riding a stationary bike or running on a treadmill while people in lab coats with clipboards watch from the side? Yea that was me today. One of the clipboard people. It was actually pretty cool. The patients who came in either had a known preexisting hard condition and we wanted to make sure their heart could keep up with some exercise or there was some kind of concern for an exercise-induced heart problem. Unfortunately we didn’t see anything super abnormal, but also fortunately for the kids’ sakes. Seeing all that exercise made me thinking how I really need to get back into doing more exercise, it is just pretty hard to find the time these days because of my commute. I know it sounds like an excuse, but if I could find time to go climbing during the week without compromising my other responsibilities I definitely would.
