HIIT-NoW Trial Summary

This trial will test if a new exercise program that combines high-intensity interval training and Nordic walking can improve physical and mental health in patients with coronary artery disease.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for patients at least 40 years old with coronary artery disease who have had a stent inserted or heart bypass surgery. They must be willing to attend exercise sessions on-site, able to perform an exercise test measuring heart and lung function, and not currently in cardiac rehab.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study is testing if high-intensity interval Nordic walking can improve physical and mental health better than standard cardiovascular rehabilitation. It's a new way of exercising that works the whole body by using special poles while walking.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
While specific side effects are not listed, high-intensity exercises may lead to muscle soreness, fatigue, increased heart rate during activity, and potential strain on the cardiovascular system especially in those with pre-existing conditions.

Frequently Asked Questions

These questions and answers are submitted by anonymous patients, and have not been verified by our internal team.

Could you explain what the principal aims of this trial are?

"This clinical trial is primarily evaluating participants' subjective experience with exercise over an 11-week period. Secondary metrics of interest include functional capacity assessed through a 6-minute walk test, cardiorespiratory fitness measured by symptom-limited CPET exams, and depression levels determined using the Beck Depression Inventory-II (higher scores representing more severe symptoms)."
