    So the cleveland clinic said he has a larger heart than normal, but they deemed him healthy? So I'm guessing if the chambers of the heart are larger, his heart/ejection fraction is good and he's just efficient at pumping blood. But if the muscle wall thickness is enlarged, wouldn't that potentially affect rhythm centers (av/sa node), especially at sustained, elevated heart rate?

    Well, I'm sure the docs at the cc know all about that and would not have cleared him unless they took all that into account.

    Best of luck Chuck.
