Exploring Impaired Heart Rate Response to Exercise in Adults with Parkinson’s Disease

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Exercise is a beneficial therapy for people with Parkinson's disease (PwPD). However, PwPD experience varying degrees of cardiac impairment related to their PD pathology. This can contribute to chronotropic incompetence and exercise intolerance, and limit PwPD from taking advantage of exercise interventions. The goal of this research is to identify differences between the altered cardiac responses to exercise in PwPD and the cardiac response of age matched controls
