Study of Physically Active Children with Congenital Heart Disease

In children with congenital heart disease, advancements in paediatric diagnostic and surgical techniques have had a substantial influence on enhancing survival and lowering death (CHD). Without incident, newborns with tetralogy of Fallot or transposition of the great arteries have reached adulthood with a decent quality of life. The goal of this research is to encourage the continuation of active physiotherapy treatment that began during the inpatient stay. Encourage the incorporation of socio-sports, so that physical activity becomes a part of this population’s future lifestyle. The quality of life of operated children has improved, but it is still the goal to maintain physiotherapy treatment after they leave the hospital to avoid musculoskeletal development deficits. This has an impact on their physical state as well as their sports and physical exercise activities. A cardiopulmonary activity test similar to that used in athletes should be used in the follow-up of CHD patients. As a result, the physician will have more knowledge to make better decisions, and the physical education teacher will be able to do his job more safely and devise techniques to help the child perform better. All techniques should be employed, from inspiring the child to making advice to parents, demonstrating that physical activity is an important element of the treatment in both the short and long term.
