Description

These physical activity recommendations for people with cardiovascular disease (CVD) are based on current evidence and are endorsed by the National Heart Foundation. The purpose of these recommendations is to provide general practitioners and physicians with evidence-based physical activity information for specific, stable cardiovascular conditions.

Benefits from regular moderate physical activity for people with CVD include augmented physiological functioning, lessening of cardiovascular symptoms, enhanced quality of life, improved coronary risk profile, superior muscle fitness and, for survivors of acute myocardial infarction, lower mortality.

The full guidelines are available here.
