A lot has been written about appropriately selected locomotory activity for people suffering from chronic heart failure (CHHF). The benefits of cardiovascular rehabilitation for people with this disease were unequivocally confirmed. However, its availability and low amount of workstations focusing on these problems remain its main disadvantage. However, there are techniques, using which we are able to demonstrably reduce CHHF symptoms and thus improve the quality of life. By the said techniques, we meant Threshold IMT® inspiratory breathing aids, which work on the principle of direct activation of inspiratory muscles that are afflicted with skeletal myopathy in patients with CHHF. On the basis of first-rate theses, this short revue presents a guide on how to approach these problems.
