Cardiac Telerehabilitation - Current State and Clinical Perspectives

  title={Cardiac Telerehabilitation - Current State and Clinical Perspectives},
  author={Emilia Mikołajewska and Dariusz Mikołajewski},
Cardiovascular Diseases (CVD) are regarded as a leading cause of death globally, constituting important medical, social and economical problem. Systematic reviews and metaanalyses show the positive effect of exercise-based Cardiac Rehabilitation (CR). Despite wellestablished benefits of CR, many heart failure patients do not attend such programs for a variety of reasons. Cardiac telerehabilitation has the huge potential to deliver CR programs to aforementioned patients. The aim of this study… Expand
