Cardiovascular diseases are rapidly increasing due to the spread of lifestyle diseases in the world. In particular, along with the aging population is the increase in the number of elderly patients with cardiovascular diseases.
These patients with cardiovascular diseases may be forced to restrict their activities of daily living and lower health-related quality of life due to sedentary behaviour, together with lower physical function and physical activity. In addition, environmental factors may also be related to these factors.
The improvement of these several abilities in cardiovascular disease patients may contribute not only to the improvement of their exercise capacity and life prognosis but also to their health-related quality of life. Also, these improvements will not only prevent cognitive dysfunction, but will also may lead to improvement of mild cognitive impairment, and may actively promote nursing care prevention. Moreover, these are very important in controlling the re-hospitalization rate and eventually in suppressing the increasing medical expenses.
The focus lies on exercise, monitoring, disease management, and their prevention, but other related topics may also be considered. This Special Issue is not only looking for papers reporting original data from epidemiologic studies, but also systematic reviews and meta-analyses are welcome.
