Saurav Ganguly suffered a Heart Attack
He suffered a blackout during Gym Exercises at his home
He was taken in time to the hospital & Golden Hour was Not lost
Ganguli is 48 years only & being a cricketer must be used to heavy exercises & must be careful about his eating habits.
Exercise regime,along with good dietary habits may not be responsible for a sudden heart attack and may be genetic factors are the cause of inherent higher levels of Bad Cholesterol,to be the cause multiple blockages.
He had blockages in 3 coronary arteries & Stents were used to clear away the blockages.
He is stable now,in less than 24 hours after suffering from a blackout/ heart attack at home.
He suffered a Myocardial infarction MI (heart attack) while exercising on a treadmill
MI means that muscles of the heart are partially damaged.
Luckily the heart has huge network of collaterals as tiny blood vessels & they open up to take over the Extra work load, due to blocked blood vessels.
Future course of management will be decided soon.
May He Be Blessed with years of good health.
Entire nation is praying for his speedy recovery.
Lessons for others to be learnt --
Gyms are mushrooming in Delhi/NCR and other places,without taking into account the eligibility of the personnel managing these places.
Do these Gyms have educated trainers ?
People are made to do more difficult exercises,than their system can take.
Herd mentality prevails & individuality of the person is Not taken into account.
Each one among us have been through different kinds of childhoods.
Exercising during childhood through cycling/ PT exercises at schools/ running around the home etc are deciding factors about how much of exercise,our body can take during our adulthood.
We are careful about our eating habits.
Why do we get careless,while in the gym ?
Overenthusiam & in a hurry to get a perfect body ?
I am sure that person like Saurav was Not Doing More Exercise than he could Tolerate.
He, being a cricketer must be aware about his own limits & this is the reason to have a gym at home.
It is a lesson for others,who are at mercy of gym trainers,promising them the moon in the form of body beautiful.
A Body Beautiful or A Body Tolerant ? more
