Small increases in daily physical activity after receiving an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) were associated with decreases in hospitalizations and deaths among adults over age 65 with heart failure. For every 10 minutes a day of increased physical activity, there was a 1% lower risk of death and hospitalization.
