REGULAR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AS AN EFFECTIVE TREATMENT TO IMPROVE PHYSICAL FUNCTION AND REDUCE MORTALITY IN CARDIAC PATIENTS.

THESE MODALITIES ENHANCE CARDIAC FUNCTION, MAXIMAL OXYGEN UPTAKE (V[Combining Dot Above]O2MAX), AND OVERALL TOLERANCE TO EXERCISE AND IMPROVE HEALTH STATUS.
