Cold water swimming.

3 posts in this topic

Does swimming in water above 70 degrees cause heart stress. I have AFIB, and my pool is in the 70s right now. I'm 75 years old. Will diving into this water be a trigger for my AFIB?

As long as you don't hit your head on the bottom of the pool when you dive you should be okay. I have a heated pool at 80 degrees and an indoor Jacuzzi that is hotter. As you approach 90 degrees I heard it is bad for any heart problem.
