NAJAS, Cláudio Spínola et al. Safety and accuracy of physical training in chronic renal insufficiency. Rev Bras Med Esporte [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.5, pp.384-388. ISSN 1517-8692.

Chronic renal disease has consequences on several physiological systems. Patients present decrease on cardiorespiratory capability, muscular changes, reduced physical performance and worse quality of life. Physical activity has been increasingly used as therapy for these patients, including training programs with aerobic and resistance exercises of low to moderate intensity in the interdialytic period and during hemodialysis. However, the benefits of physical exercise therapy to chronic renal patients, the choice of better training programs and the applicability safety of specific exercises are not clear yet. Thus, this review has the objective to discuss the aspects concerned with the type of training, better period to perform it and the relevance of their benefits to patients.

Keywords : physical activity; hemodialysis; metabolism.
