CIED-EX Trial Summary

This trial will investigate the effects of HIIT vs. MICT on physical, mental and quality of life of women with CIEDs, using a mixed-methods approach.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for women with cardiac devices (CIED) who've had them for at least 6 months, can read English or French, and are able to do a CPET exercise test. They should be on optimal medical therapy and not already doing regular exercise more than twice a week. Women who are pregnant or without internet cannot join.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study compares two types of virtual exercise programs over 12 weeks: moderate-intensity continuous training (MICT) and high-intensity interval training (HIIT). It aims to see which one better improves fitness, quality of life, and mental health in women with CIED.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
While the trial itself doesn't involve medication that could cause side effects, exercising might lead to muscle soreness, fatigue, or in rare cases exacerbate underlying heart conditions. Participants will be monitored closely for any adverse reactions.
