CIRCULATORY ISSUES

“All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.”

—FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE

Circulatory issues are those that relate to the heart, blood, and blood vessels. Sometimes they can be related to an illness, either chronic (such as peripheral artery disease) or acute (such as a heart attack), or they may result from another injury (as in the case of shock). For managing chronic illnesses while still enjoying the great outdoors, see Chapter 12.
