- Untoward events associated with exercise (e.g., hypoglycemia, syncope, transient ischemic attack, orthopedic/musculoskeletal trauma, myocardial infarction, sudden cardiac death) have been reported in the medical literature and the lay press. This suggests that strenuous and/or prolonged physical activity may trigger medical complications in selected (at-risk) individuals. If Exercise Has Medicinal Properties, Is Overdosing Possible? reviews the pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying common exertion-related injuries and events, as well as high-risk recreational and leisure-time activities. The DVD also details strategies that health/fitness professionals can adopt to potentially reduce the risk of exercise-related complications.
