Charles Welty began seriously worrying about his heart health at the gym. The 78-year-old retired civil engineer said that while running on a treadmill, he saw something startling on the machine’s heart monitor.
“My pulse rate was undetectable,” Welty said during a recent interview in his Lenexa home. “It was so fast.”
A visit to his doctor revealed that his worries were not unfounded.
“What was going on was not so good. And had me somewhat scared,” Welty said.
