The article by Hung and colleagues in this issue of CHEST (see page 1026) provides some important insights on two methods of exercise intervention in a group of older women with CAD that can improve V̇o2peak, muscle strength, and quality of life (QOL). They compared the effect that aerobic training (AT) [treadmill and cycle exercise] and combined aerobic and upper- and lower-extremity strength training (COMT) had on several variables in 18 older women (60 to 80 years old) with documented CAD (after exclusion of high-risk patients). Exercise duration was 30 min per session, 3 d/wk, for 8 weeks. Irrespective of the type of training, there was statistically significant posttraining improvement in V̇o2peak, distance walked in 6 min, lower-extremity strength, and emotional, physical, social, and global QOL. COMT resulted in a significant improvement in upper-extremity strength (no change after AT), and a greater absolute improvement in emotional, physical, social, and global QOL. Despite the small number of subjects in the study group, no mention of left ventricular systolic and diastolic function, and the presence and quantity of myocardial ischemia, Hung and colleagues must be congratulated for this prospective investigation, which provides important information for us to use in cardiac rehabilitation programs, and to be applied in future large-scale trials with longer follow-up to determine long-term morbidity and mortality benefits.
