Abstract

The purpose of this article was to systematically review the available evidence about the effects on functional capacity, cardiac sympathetic activity and quality of life, which are the main prognostic indicators found in studies employing rehabilitation protocols with interval aerobic exercise in patients with heart failure. Data collection was carried out in the databases MEDLINE, LILACS and SciELO, using five keywords in Health Sciences or Medical Subject Headings, three freeterms and seven combinations. A total of 155 articles were retrieved from the database MEDLINE, via Publisher MEDLINE, by crossing the keywords and free terms. Six articles were found in the databases LILACS and SciELO, in which were made searches in English, Portuguese and Spanish. According to the findings reported herein, it is concluded that interval aerobic exercise provides patients with heart failure with improved functional capacity as measured by VO2 peak, and improved quality of life when compared to continuous aerobic exercise, both performed alone.
