Exercise Concerns

The patient with Eisenmenger Complex will experience some limitations in physical activity because of fatigue and/or breathlessness during exercise (dyspnea). In addition, care should be taken to avoid circumstances that expose the patient to heat for prolonged periods, the risk of dehydration, or high altitudes. Testing will be necessary to determine safe levels of exertion.

Anyone with congenital heart disease, repaired or non-repaired, should consult with their cardiologist about physical activity to review the risks.
