Abstract

Considerable research from the Ochsner Heart and Vascular Institute has focused on the effects of exercise training in patients with coronary heart disease. In this review, the authors discuss the risks and benefits of exercise training in general patients, as well as those with known vascular disease, and provide suggestions for exercise prescriptions for these patients, including modes of exercise and intensity, duration, and frequency of exercise sessions.
