Exercise and cardiac rehabilitation

Exercise and cardiac rehabilitation


Exercise is recommended for all patients [if clinically appropriate] in order to improve exercise capacity, quality of life and reduce HF hospitalisation. Exercise should be tailored to the patient's ability

A supervised, exercise-based, cardiac rehabilitation programme should be considered in patients with more severe disease, frailty or with comorbidities including people who are wheelchair bound.

Investment in cardiac rehabilitation provision is a national priority and, in some areas, combining pulmonary rehabilitation with cardiac rehabilitation has proved successful.
