Basic facts of monitoring heart rate in sport and recreative activities is a book about not so exploited and well known field in Serbia. Heart rate monitors are so little present in Serbia, so in this issue we are practically starting fresh. It is well known fact that in developed countries children use it in elementary school in order to be trained in their calculated and target rang of heart rate and that physicians use prescriptions of heart rate rang in daily practice. From that point of view it isn’t enough that only few enthusiasts use heart rate monitors in Serbia and almost always in competitive sport.


This book similar to medical text books has a general and special part because authors thought that heart rate monitoring is not so often represented topic from medical and sport point of view. Through this book chapters authors tried to explain fenomenons connected to heart rate and then to show its use in specific sports, medicine area and in different fields of life.

Idea of ”Sudden cardiac death in sport” book is to prevent sudden death in sport and that entire tragic event brings along. On the other hand idea of this book was not to keep away from sport those who like to participate. Actually is the way to prevent successful athletes in the past, now doctors to become team physicians for the reason that everyone knows him or surgeon who was on case, operating president of the club to become chief of medical commission.

We believe that this country needs standards and regulations, but among all our country deserves law which will protect athletes in their regular activities daring between health and disease. We know also that with this book all problems won’t be solved, but we are pretty sure that lot of questions will be recognized and discussed as well and there will be solution to most important problems. I believe that once recognized interest of young experts in field of sport science and medicine will urgently change attitude of society toward style of life and have influenced as it is in other countries to be very base and foundation for restoration of community in general.
