Research Suggests Nurse Practitioners May Prescribe Tai Chi for Coronary Heart Disease
 
June 28, 2011 -
UResearchers from University of Nevada and University of Hawaii conducted a comprehensive review of literature to explore current studies on Tai Chi and its impact on coronary heart disease (CHD) and to provide recommendations for clinical practice and future research. Data sources: Comprehensive review of literature.
 
Tai Chi is a safe alternative exercise for patients who are at risk of CHD or with existing CHD. Implementing Tai Chi exercise may improve serum lipids, blood pressure, and heart rate.
 
Implications for practice: Nurse practitioners (NPs) are in an ideal position to facilitate health promotion and disease prevention. NPs may prescribe Tai Chi as an alternative exercise therapy for their patients who are at risk for developing CHD and even for those with existing CHD. Tai Chi exercise may help prevent and even reverse the progression of cardiac disease.
 
This study appears in the July 2011 issue of Journal of American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.
