The aim of the performed research was to determine the features of the physical development and its connection with the body of the children of school age who have a congenital heart disease with a functionally single heart’ ventricle for developing the physical rehabilitation technology. There were performed an examination of the 179 children with functionally single heart’ ventricle hospitalized for operative treatment in the State Center «Scientific and Practical Medical Center of the Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiosurgery of the Ministry of Health of Vietnam in the 2016 and 2017 years. The analysis of the physical development indicators of the children with functionally single heart’ ventricle allowed to establish a more pronounced lagging in the physical development by dividing the length and body mass index into the centile corridors and Roerre’s index, comparing with children with other congenital heart disease, determining the need for development for patients with functionally single heart’ ventricle special physical rehabilitation technology. The physical rehabilitation technology of the children with functionally single heart’ ventricle after a hemodynamic correction should include the principles of physical rehabilitation, pedagogical principles, age characteristics of children, the indicators of physical development, the quantitative indicators of the biogeometrical posture profile, features of hemodynamics, functional condition of cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
