Forty-six CAD patients volunteered to take part in the study: a group of 27 patients undertook an Intermittent Hypoxia (O2 at 10%) - Hyperoxia (O2 at 30%) Training (IHHT), while a control group (CTRL) of 19 patients was allocated to sham IHHT treatment (breathing via face mask by room air, O2 at 21%). Exercise performance, blood and metabolic profile, quality of life (MOS SF-36, Seattle Angina Questionnaire, SAQ) were measured before and after IHHT/sham IHHT in both groups; the intervention group was also assessed one month after completing the IHHT. The IHHT intervention group showed improved exercise capacity (+1,8 ml O2/min/kg, p=0,02), reduced resting systolic and diastolic blood pressures (151/85 before vs 130/73 after p<0,01), enhanced Left Ventricle Ejection Fraction (62,6±5,5% vs 58±6,2%, p<0,01), glycemia was significantly reduced only at 1-month follow-up (6,18±1,7 after vs 7,10±2,34 mmol/l at baseline, p=0,037). Frequency of angina as reason to stop exercising was significantly reduced after treatment and at 1-month follow-up. In CAD patients an Intermittent Hypoxia-Hyperoxia Training program is associated with improved exercise tolerance, risks factors profile and quality of life (SF-36, SAQ). IHHT has proved to be safe, well tolerable and easily applicable in cardiac patients.
