Abstract

Background: In-water exercise, hydrotherapy, may offer an attractive alternative to conventional training in markedly compromised patients with advanced HF. This Pilot Study evaluates the safety and efficacy of Cardio-Hydrokinesitherapy (Cardio-HKT) in patients with advanced HF on optimal medical therapy. Cardio-HKT is a novel rehabilitation program that includes training sessions in warm water (31°C), integrated by educational and psycho-behavioural sessions to promote healthy life style modifications. Methods: We studied 18 adult patients with advanced HF, LVEFII and peak oxygen uptake (peak VO2)
