Cardiac rehabilitation is a multifaceted intervention aimed to enhance health and wellness in patients with cardiovascular disease and chronic heart failure. Many books on cardiac rehabilitation primarily focus on pathology, risk stratification, and patient assessment while giving less attention to designing an exercise regimen. Exercise Prescription for Cardiac Rehabilitation: A Guide for Clinicians concentrates on developing exercise programs for individuals with chronic heart disease based on recommendations from current research to meet a patient’s personal goals. The purpose of this project is to present health care providers with comprehensive recommendations for treatment plans appropriate for each phase of recovery during rehabilitation. Through this guide, readers can better create individualized programs to help patients progress based on their skills, abilities, and physical capabilities. Physical activity will ultimately lead to short and long term benefits while increasing overall health and quality of life in patients with cardiovascular disease.
