  1. 1. Exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation, physical fitness, and physical activity in cardiac disease

    Författare :Maria Borland; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2018]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation; exercise; physical fitness; physical activity; health-related quality of life; atrial fibrillation; heart failure;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Evidence suggests that individualised exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation should be offered to patients with ischemic heart disease and chronic heart failure (HF) because it improves physical fitness and health-related quality of life (HR-QoL), and reduces cardiac mortality and hospital admissions. If physiotherapist-led exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation (PT-X) can similarly improve physical fitness in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), and improve physical activity levels in patients with chronic HF or permanent AF, has been sparsely studied.
