[Effects of the combination of nitrogen baths and physical training on physical performance and extrasystole in patients with coronary heart disease with intraventricular blocks].

99 patients with coronary heart disease (CHD), stable angina pectoris (functional class I-II), intraventricular blocks (IVB) took a course of general artificial nitrogen baths. Of them, 31 patients took the baths alone; 35 patients, in addition, exercised on veloergometer; 33 patients took baths and continued physical training up to 6 months. The results of the treatment were assessed with spiroveloergometry, ambulatory Holter ECG monitoring. Those who took baths and exercised for 6 months benefited from the treatment most as their muscular performance and coronary heart reserve increased; mean daily number of ventricular extrasystoles reduced by 73.3%, supraventricular extrasystoles--by 72.2%; intraventricular conduction was not damaged.
