The role of rehabilitation as an adjunct to medication in acute coronary syndromes
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractPurpose: The aim of this paper is to assess the impact of cardiac rehabilitation through a systematic review comparing cardiac rehabilitation to pharmacological treatment assessing the benefits and risks associated with it. Through examining cardiac rehabilitation, this dissertation clarifies the importance behind such strategies by summarising the evidence of benefit. Method: The types of evidence used for this research include both primary and secondary sources. The question of the effectiveness of cardiac rehabilitation is addressed by arguing that if the implementation of cardiac rehabilitation were improved the benefits would be higher. This study combines the findings of several studies to draw reliable conclusions supported by evidence than the component studies alone. Findings: Considering the evidence, area‟s, which require questioning, include the introduction of an online programme for patients to conduct the programme in the comfort of their own home compensating for the time used when attending appointments. Other areas include educating patients on the benefits of cardiac rehabilitation to motivate patients to attend. Conclusion: Despite the evidence, cardiac rehabilitation remains questioned; areas that require exposal include improving attendance, referral rates and introducing new areas of delivery.
