Cardiac Rehabilitation

……. an inexpensive treatment that saves lives, reduces disability, improves health related quality of life and helps people fight back against heart disease by becoming active self managers of their condition BHF 2008

The Evidence

Reduces Improves Supports • • • • • • • • All cause mortality by 11-26% Cardiac mortality by 26-36% Morbidity Unplanned admissions by 28-56% Heron et al 2011 Quality of Life Functional capacity Early return to work The development of self management skills

‘If there was a pill that cost very little, reduced cardiac deaths by 27% , improved quality of life, and reduced anxiety and depression, every cardiac patient in Europe would be expected to take it. There is no such pill but taking part in a Cardiac Rehabilitation Programme can provide all these benefits Prof Bob Lewin 2005

Comprehensive Cardiac Rehabilitation Options

Exercise: Gym based classes Low, Moderate or High intensity 1:1 Exercise Home Based instruction with low intensity diary Early referral to Active Lifestyles Education: Classes currently in CUH but hope to other venues.

NICE Guidelines 2013

• • • • • Offer a CCR programme that improves uptake within 10 days of discharge Offer advice re Mediterranean diet, smoking cessation and exercise Ensure appropriate drug therapy is prescribed and up-titrated Communication to you to include diagnosis and advice re secondary prevention Help ensure Echo’s are requested.

Future Local Guidelines

• • • • • • Identify and offer service early – all contacted in 4 days Central point of contact – already met See patients pre intervention Offer programmes in evenings and Saturdays Offer in Community settings – currently Active Lifestyles Offer separate programmes for HF and ICI patient once appropriate staffing levels agreed


• • • • • • • Early discharge – no time for reflection of chronic disease Increase in co –morbidities since 13% (2006) to 46% (2012) – increases need for case management post assessment Reduce waiting times for CCR and assessments Finding appropriate centres at an acceptable cost for nursing and physiotherapy assessment FCT and exercise out of office hours To see patients earlier and offer exercise advice to more people Improve uptake of CCR Maintaining National Database for Cardiac Rehab
