Dr. Linda Ashman Kröönström

My namn is Linda Ashman Kröönström and I am a physiotherapist working at the ACHD unit, Sahlgrenska University Hospital/Östra Hospital, Gothenburg, Sweden since the year of 2009. My clinical work includes evaluations of patient’s physical fitness (muscle function, cardiorespiratory endurance etc.) in connection with the patients visit to the ACHD unit, as well as providing exercise and exercise recommendations. My clinical experience led to research questions which resulted in my thesis with the following title: “Physical fitness and exercise in adults with congenital heart disease”, (Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology/Physiotherapy, Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden) which I defended in 2020. My areas of interest regarding research include all aspects of physical fitness and exercise in adults with congenital heart disease. After my dissertation I have ongoing research in collaboration with the staff at the ACHD unit, (Sahlgrenska University Hospital/Östra Hospital, Gothenburg, Sweden) regarding, amongst others, different aspects of physical fitness.
