Is swimming a good activity for hypertension? Does exercise prevent pericarditis? Is regular exercise advised for people who have had a myocardial infarction? Physical activity improves the quality of life, and reduces major risk factors of cardiovascular diseases, such as levels of cholesterol, overweight, and diabetes. Therefore, patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases, such as arrhythmias, hypertension, or heart failure, should exercise regularly. Physicians have the responsibility to promote regular physical activity, suggesting each patient the adequate exercise, safe and designed specifically for his/her health status. This book provides suggestions and guidelines, listing recommended exercises and sports that should be avoided.
