Women and Cardiac Rehab

Posted:

CANADA- A new study led by researchers at York University and published in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology, finds women may be less likely than men to stick to cardiac rehab programs, after suffering a heart attack or surgery.
Canadian researchers followed about eight-thousand people in rehab programs. Overall, patients took part in two-thirds of the prescribed sessions, but men had better attendance than women. Experts say these findings are concerning, because completing each rehab session helps lower the risk of death among heart patients.
Cardiac rehab programs offer exercise, education, counseling and plans for risk reduction.
