Nationwide, snow shoveling is responsible for thousands of injuries and as many as 100 deaths each year.
Pushing a heavy snow blower can also cause injury. There is also the cold factor to consider. Cold weather can increase heart rate and blood pressure. It can make blood clot more easily and constrict arteries, which decreases blood supply. This is true even in healthy people. Individuals over the age of 40 or who are relatively inactive should be particularly careful.
