  Purpose

Aerobic interval training is shown to be superior in increasing oxygen uptake in both healthy and patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), compared to moderate continuous training. However, in cardiac rehabilitation exercise groups, exercise intensity is usually controlled with perceived exertion (Borg scale). The investigators will investigate degree of agreement between target heart rate and perceived exertion during interval training in cardiac rehabilitation.


Condition Intervention
Coronary Artery Disease
Other: Rate of perceived exertion
Other: Heart rate monitor

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Exercise Intensity and Target Heart Rate During Aerobic Interval Training in Cardiac Rehabilitation
