Abstract

Physical training is the most important method in the rehabilitation program in patients after myocardial infarction. It should begin as soon as possible after the cardiovascular event, if the contraindications are not present (6). Physical training must be individually prescribed and supervised. In order to prescribe a regular physical training, it is necessary to determine the coronary reserve in each patient, which is possible by using exercise testing as a noninvasive method. This can be performed without risks in the selected group of patients after myocardial infarction.
