CASSELTON, N.D. — During harvest season and even when farmers are gearing up for harvest, rural areas see a large number of heart attacks, said Dr. Thomas Haldis, an interventional cardiologist and medical director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Fargo’s Sanford Health. Farmers might push through their symptoms because they want to get their harvest in, he said, but symptoms are warning signs. “When you have chest pain out in the tractor, that can be a disaster,” he said.
