Cold Weather and hearts

Can going out in cold weather affect your heart? My brother goes outside and within seconds is shaking and having angina (SP) attacks. Does the cold weather do this to him? He is waiting for a heart transplant and had a heart attacks about 4 months ago and is on meds

Re: Cold Weather and hearts

Cold weather and especially exertion in cold weather can indeed be a problem. Shoveling snow causes quite a few heart attacks.

Has he tried bundling up warmer and covering his face with a scarf?
