Exercise for heart patients

New standards for exercise and physical activity for cardiac patients have been published by the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Cardiac Rehabilitation.

The evidence-based standards expand the previous guidelines to cover the whole rehabilitation pathway and include more complex patient groups, including transplant patients and those with heart failure. They have been developed to standardise the quality and approach taken by exercise professionals and to act as a reference guide for the delivery of safe and effective exercise for all eligible cardiac patients.
