We have always thought that patients with cardiac disease are depressed and anxious. The plan for cardiac rehab begins with exercise 3 times a week for 12 weeks. Patients are usually elderly. Typical patients are 60+ years old, inactive but stable, smoke cigarettes, are stressed, hypertensive, and anxious. After several visits the staff for the program report that patients are confident with decreased anxiety and improved exercise ability. Challenges for a rehab program are parking, education and frailness. At present we have no data on outcome (mortality, morbidity) but most measurements are improved after rehab. Outcome data after discharge for rehab program must be obtained.
