REGAL RAMOS, Raúl Jesús. Can a heart rate monitor shorten the temporary disability of patients with ischemic heart disease?. Med. segur. trab. [online]. 2015, vol.61, n.241, pp.480-485. ISSN 1989-7790.

Usually cardiologists recommend the use of heart rate monitors in selected patients with ischemic heart disease who want to resume a sport activity. It acts as a safety feature that regulates the intensity of exercise. In the same way that a heart rate monitor is a tool that helps to co-ordinate ischemic heart disease with carrying out certain exercises or physical efforts, could it be used as a tool to help reconcile ischemic heart disease for the completion of certain labor efforts? In certain cases in which there is sufficient medical recovery to return to work, but the patient keeps doubting, the use of the heart rate monitor would provide that security that would facilitate the return to work.

Keywords : Disability; Coronary heart disease; Intensity exercise; Prescription of exercise.
