Abstract

Modern cardiac rehabilitation (CR) in chronic heart failure (CHF) is a multidisciplinary process with the patient being the centre of the focus. Various CR models (inpatient, outpatient and home based) have been used the last two decades in the pursuit of higher effectiveness and better results. The aim of this review is to present different exercise training modes applied in rehabilitating patients with CHF and to highlight their clinical value, advantages and disadvantages and practical implication.
