Heart disease exercise guidelines

Common Questions and Answers about Heart disease exercise guidelines


Avatar n tn My mother at age 54 had a quad bi-pass and was diagnosed with heart disease 1 year later at the age of 55. Nothing could be done for her heart disease except medication because it is the small arteries that are closing up (not large ones that could be opened by surgery). She is also diabetic, and heart disease runs in our family (I have not know any of my grandparents due to early deaths).
Avatar n tn AAC/AHA provide guidelines for treatment of occluded vessels. The guidelines are not to treat any lesion less than 70% (exception would be if there are symptoms such as chest pain), if there is treatment for symptoms, then medication. If medication does not effectively treat the lesion, then a stent implant. Sometimes stents are not a solution because the lesion is too long, difficult to assess, etc. then a bypass.
Avatar n tn Severe aortic stenosis is a contraindication to maximal stress testing according to ACSM guidelines (pg. 42 ACSM Guidelines for Exercise Testing - 5th ed.) Submaximal exercise may be appropriate in an individual with mod-severe stenosis but should be done under close supervision. I guess the same guidelines as with any high risk individual should be used - i.e. stop with any symptoms, aim for 60% APMHR if possible, low impact type workout, etc.
Avatar n tn Whenever I run (my preferred cardio method), my heart-rate exceeds what the guidelines tell me it should. At moderate levels of exercise, my heart-rate goes as high as 160-165. I feel fine, no pain or discomfort, and I wouldn’t know it without a heart rate monitor. Within a couple of minutes after the end of my run, my pulse is down to 120-130. I had a baseline EKG at my physical, and it was normal. I have no known risk factors for heart disease and no family history of heart problems.

Avatar n tn t have medical problems, you can use the cardiovascular recommendations on line for cardiovascular work out which is related to age and pulse (heart rate) or look for guidelines on building strength versus muscle mass. all have different guidelines, and you don't indicate your specific goal.
Avatar m tn Aerobic exercise has the most benefits for your heart. Over time, aerobic exercise can help decrease your heart rate and blood pressure and improve your breathing. I have been doing 30 minutes a day on the treadmill and resistance training with heavy weights for about 10 years. Seems to help... Thanks for the question and if you have and followup questions or comments you are welcome to respond. Take care.

Avatar n tn This is actually heart disease in people but perhaps someone can help. Swimming is low impact exercise and is excellent. But not sure if it's good for someone with pulmonary hypertension. Swimming can be quite strenuous and make even the healthiest person become short of breath. Have you asked the vet about this?

Avatar n tn I am 46 year old female, about 80# overweight, do not exercise, non smoker/drinker, with occasional palipatations and fastheart rate, however, both parents had heart disease, but typically not until their later years (after mid 70's). My mom died at 83 with congestive heart failure and my dad is still going at 85 with angina and alot of blockage, but is maintaining.....My doctor wants to put me on cholestral lowering medication and possibly beta blockers.
1085002 tn?1256414949 t aggressive enough and went through quite a few heart procedures. Mammo is correct, you should in my opinion exercise daily, take a statin drug that your doctor recommends, but don't take this lightly. Are you diabetic, and do you have high blood pressure? I'd also address these issues aggressively. Stay in touch.
Avatar n tn According to American heart association guidelines an HDL of 35 or less is an independent risk factor for developing heart disease. Less is known about the risk of triglycerides.

Avatar n tn The American Heart Association guidelines call for at least 40 minutes of vigerous exercise (65-85% maximum heart rate) most days of the week. Xanax is in a class of drugs called benzodiazepines which are potentially addicting medications. You doctor can discuss alternatives with you.
