About

The aim of this study was to evaluate physical fitness and physical activity levels of pediatric arrhythmia patients with pacemaker compared with their healthy peers.

Full description

Studies in children with heart diseases suggest that physical activity levels are reduced relative to their peers, which in turn increases cardiovascular risk factors and cardiac rhythm problems. To the best of our knowledge, physical fitness and objectively measured physical activity levels of children with a pacemaker have not been studied. The aim of this study was to evaluate physical fitness and physical activity levels of pediatric arrhythmia patients with a pacemaker compared with their healthy peers. Investigators enrolled clinically stable pediatric patients and used the echocardiogram to evaluate cardiac functions of all patients. Physical fitness was assessed using the Munich Physical Fitness Test (MFT). The SenseWear Armband metabolic Holter device was used to record the physical activity level for consecutive 7 days.
