Cardio Fitness Level May Be A Strong Predictor For Breast Cancer Survival
Profiled in this video, a study shows that many women undergoing breast cancer treatments had impaired cardio-pulmonary function both during and after treatment. This Duke study found that cardio-pulmonary function was even impaired years after treatment. A 2013 AHA study suggests the need for tailored exercise interventions during treatment to reduce cardiovascular risk.
