Abstract



Objective. The aim of this study is to determine the efficacy of the cardiac rehabilitation (CARE) program of Cardinal Santos Medical Center (CSMC) in patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and to determine their improvement in the core components (exercise habits and tolerance, weight, blood pressure, lipid profile, diabetes and tobacco cessation) of CARE.


Methodology. This is an observational, cross-sectional study and included patients who underwent PCI at CSMC who were enrolled in the CARE program and completed at least Phase 1 of the program. Matched PCI controls were also included. Baseline characteristics and improvements in CARE core components of the two groups were tabulated and compared.


Results. All patients included achieved good blood pressure control and had complete cessation of smoking. Improvement in lipid profile were not significantly different between groups. CARE patients showed greater improvement in physical activity, with an odds ratio of 7 (95% CI 1.73-28.17; p=0.004), showing a strong association between physical activity and CARE.
