Comparison of Heart Rate Responses Between Coronary Heart Disease and Age-Matched Normal Subjects in Water-and Land-Based Exercise: A Pilot Study

  Background and purpose. Exercise therapy is an integral component of cardiac rehabilitation (CR). Currently, land-based exercise classes are prescribed in Phase IV CR. However, with its unique properties, water-based exercise potentially offers an alternative, or additional mode of exercise, that could be utilized by rehabilitating individuals. The purpose of this pilot study was to measure and compare the heart rate (HR) response and perception of exercise intensity between similar land-and water-based classes.
