Special Issue "The Prescription of Exercise to Improve Cardiovascular Health"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Health Behavior, Chronic Disease and Health Promotion".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2021.
Exercise is medicine, and a critical component of the prevention and treatment of cardiometabolic diseases. However, cardiovascular conditions continue to affect large proportions of the global population, and prescription of the medicine known as exercise is far from being optimised. Within the changing physical environment and economic landscape, it is more important than ever to improve the cardiovascular health of communities and reduce the individual and societal cost of cardiometabolic diseases.
This Special Issue focuses on how exercise is associated with and can be used and prescribed to improve cardiovascular health. The minimum clinically effective dose of exercise is an important topic for exploration to discover more knowledge around typical components of exercise such as frequency, intensity, time, and type, but also how these components, individually and as a whole, interact with other interventions.
To further understand how exercise can be prescribed to improve cardiovascular health, we invite all researchers within the broad fields of exercise physiology and health to submit original manuscripts in the form of systematic reviews, meta-analysis, observational trials, randomised controlled trials, clinical trials, or health economy analyses for consideration.
