Cardiac transplantation is now an accepted treatment for end-stage heart disease, relieving symptoms, increasing exercise tolerance, and improving survival. A number of studies have demonstrated that exercise training can further improve exercise capacity and quality of life. The atypical response of the denervated heart to exercise requires that training intensity be based on metabolic measurements and/or perceived exertion rather than heart rate, in order to ensure efficacy and safety.
