Heart Failure: Exercise May Help

Many people with heart failure avoid strenuous activities. For some people, though, the opposite makes sense: special targeted exercise programs can help to increase their physical fitness and quality of life.

Heart failure means the body's organs do not get enough oxygen, because the heart is not pumping enough blood around the body. This affects the muscles in particular. In severe cases, people are no longer able to get out of bed or dress themselves.

In mild to moderate cases, people only notice the reduced pumping capacity when they exert themselves and get out of breath quickly, for example when walking up stairs.

As a result, people with heart failure may do less physical activity. But this further reduces their physical fitness. It starts a vicious circle that can greatly reduce their independence and quality of life. Read the research on the effects of cardio exercise programs.
