Sponsored by MioGlobal
Presented by: Carl “Chip” J Lavie MD, FACC,FACP,FCCP,FESPM. Dr. Lavie attended medical school at LSUMC in New Orleans, and did his Internal Medicine training at Ochsner and cardiology at the Mayo Clinic. He is currently Professor of Medicine and Medical Director of Cardiac Rehabilitation and Prevention and Director of the Exercise Laboratories at the John Ochsner Heart and Vascular Institute, Ochsner Clinical School-The University of Queensland School of Medicine in New Orleans. He has authored nearly 1000 medical publications and 2 cardiology textbooks and serves on 25 editorial boards, including the Journal of the American College of Cardiology and the American Journal of Cardiology, and is Associate Editor and Cardiovascular Section Editor of the Mayo Clinic Proceedings. He is also Editor-in Chief of Progress in Cardiovascular Diseases and is the author of the book The Obesity Paradox.

Description: Substantial evidence demonstrates the importance of physical activity (PA) for protecting against cardiovascular (CV) and all-cause mortality, but not all PA is created equally. In fact, higher intensity PA and exercise, which increases heart rate more so than does lower intensity exercise, may have greater effect to improve cardiorespiratory fitness and all-cause and CV mortality. Recently a new technology, Personalized Activity Intelligence (PAI) was introduced as a means to define optimal levels of PA to protect against CVD and all-cause mortality. In this webinar, we will introduce PAI and discuss ways that this can be implemented to optimize PA assessment and improve PA prescription above and beyond that utilized by other techniques (minutes of exercise per week, steps per day, etc). We will also discuss future directions for exercise intensity and PAI in CV protection and prevention.
