WHAT BENEFITS DOES THIS PROGRAM HAVE?

  • Increase in quality of life
  • Decrease in cardiovascular events (angina, heart attacks, etc.)
  • Reduction in mortality from MI
  • Increase in life expectancy
  • Reduction in hospitalizations
  • Reintegration into their normal life as before the illness
  • Improvement in therapeutic adherence

CV RISK FACTORS:

  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Smoking
  • Cholesterol and dyslipidemias
  • Hypertension (HTA)
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity or overweight
  • Stress

2 sessions/week of 1h30′ with the physiotherapist:monitored physical exercise with a stationary bike combined with strength-resistance. – We control throughout the session, while the exercises are being done, the constants:
  • blood pressure
  • heart rate
  • oxygen saturation
Real-time electrocardiogram. Completely safe and the patient always works within their cardiac margin agreed with their doctor.
  1. Visit and recommendation from your doctor
  2. Tests Ergometry and Analytics
  3. Clinical interview at FisioBat
