During a coaching consult with an employee who Coach Scott had been seeing for some time, Scott administered a routine blood pressure screening. Though previous screens appeared normal, and the employee appeared to be healthy, this time Scott suspected that the employee’s heart rhythm was significantly abnormal.
Scott discussed with the employee the danger this posed, and convinced him to seek immediate medical attention. After testing, he was diagnosed with severe atrial fibrillation, a condition which often results in damage to the cardiac muscle. He then spent four days under direct medical supervision to get his heart rhythm stabilized. The treatments were successful and the employee was able to return to work, but with the recommendation that he seriously work to live as healthfully as possible.
The employee credits Scott with saving him from a potentially irreversible cardiac event, and is now working with Scott to optimize his health through improved diet and nutrition, and more regular exercise.
