Local physical training using electrostimulation of skeletal muscles in patients with CHF

Sumin A. N.



Review focuses in detail on theoretical and clinical justification of using local physical training in patients with CHF. Authors also present the 10-year experience of using the method of electromyostimulation (EMS) in patients with CHF. The EMS training appeared a safe method for improving power and endurance of skeletal muscles in this category of patients, which translated to enhanced physical capacity and quality of  life. In addition, EMS resulted in improvement of metabolism and blood supply to skeletal muscles. Review also considers issues of practical application and possible indications for EMS. The absence of noticeable hemodynamic responses during EMS allows using it even in patients with severe disease to whom usual exercise is contraindicated, as well as in the outpatient setting. The EMS training deserves broader application in medical practice and further exploration.
