OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
Dr. Michael Papadakis
The health benefits of physical activity on individuals with ischaemic heart disease and heart failure are well established. Similarly, patients with congenital heart disease (CHD), participating in exercise rehabilitation programmes, achieve significant improvement of their exercise capacity as well as their psychological state. Paradoxically, however, individuals with CHD are often encouraged towards a sedentary lifestyle, commonly as a result of overprotection and uncertainty as to the physical activities that are appropriate. This article outlines a novel way to exercise prescription in patients with CHD, based on the recent recommendations published by the Section of Sports Cardiology of the EACPR and the Working Group of Grown Up Congenital Heart Disease (1).
