Hamilton cardiologist to discuss heart health and stress

Emotions and stress impact heart health.

Dr. Anthony Navone with the Marcus Daly Cardiology Clinic and the International Heart Institute of Montana will explain the relationship during a heart health class 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 8.

“We’re all exposed to the risk factor of stress,” Navone said. “It is how we deal with stress that makes a difference.”

The reaction to stress can take many different forms - researchers note that sudden deaths from heart attacks increase during earthquakes and it did during the air raids of London in World War II.

Navone said the definition of “Type A” personalities comes from their use of stress. These are competitive people who are always looking for new activities. Initially, Type A personality was listed as a disorder associated with heart disease, but further studies show their risk increases because they often do not take care of themselves.
