Obviously, if we are visiting Sweden, we are likely to be outside for some time. We are likely to want to go for walks in the forest, see the countryside, try to see the northern lights and this will take us outside. Also, we will be staying in an ice hotel overnight..... and while they do provide protective clothing etc for the duration of our visit, it will be very cold. I have read that there are some dangers to a person with arrhytmia or a heart condition because the blood is thicker and there is additional susceptibility to hypothermia.... Can you give advice or any warnings about what to look out for?
I have sent a reply to the expert's response but not received any further information
I suppose I would have hoped to receive a bit more information, especially concerning what symptoms to look out for while outside in the cold and what precautions to take to avoid any problems.
