Abstract

LEARNING OBJECTIVE: • Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) significantly affects quality of life, particularly when doing activities such as walking and climbing stairs. In addition, persons with PAD have an increased risk for heart disease, stroke, and limb amputations. This article will summarize PAD, address exercise benefits specific to the disease, and discuss exercise training for those with PAD in both the clinical and the health and fitness setting.
