    2. Exercise improves the cardiac output of the heart for better overall stroke volume
    3. Exercise causes a decrease in afterload due to arterial vasodilation
    4. Exercise induced sympathetic outflow increases heart rate and cardiac contractility
    5. Exercise is NOT recommended in these patients due to increased risk of sudden cardiac death
