Group-based Aerobic Training in Patients With Chronic Heart Failure: Norwegian Ullevaal Model

Nilsson BB, Hellesnes B, Westheim A, Risberg MA

This case report describes the responses of four patients with chronic heart failure (NYHA III), to a group-based, high-intensity, interval training rehabilitation programme that included aerobic, resistance, flexibility and balance actvities. The four patients each experienced improvements in physical capacity and quality of life with no adverse events. This study adds support to the growing body of evidence that high-intensity interval training should be included into programmes for people with chronic heart failure.
