Cardiac Rehabilitation Following Acute Coronary Syndrome in Women

Cardiac Rehabilitation Following Acute Coronary Syndrome in Women Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is among the leading burdens of disease among women. It is a significant driver of morbidity and chronically undermines their quality of life. Cardiac rehabilitation (CR) is indicated for ACS patients in clinical practice guidelines, including those specifically for women. CR is a multi-component model of care, proven to reduce mortality and morbidity, including in women. However, women are significantly less likely to be referred to CR by providers, and if they are referred, to enroll and adhere to programs. Reasons include lack of physician encouragement, preference not to feel fatigue and pain, transportation barriers, comorbidities and caregiving obligations. Strategies to mitigate this under-use include systematic early inpatient referral, tailoring programs to meet women’s needs and preferences (e.g., offering dance, opportunities for social interaction), and offering non-supervised delivery models. Unfortunately, these strategies are not widely available to women. Given the greater longevity seen in women, the critical role CR plays in augmenting quality of life in this population must be recognized and care providers must do more to facilitate referral to and encourage participating in CR programs. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Current Treatment Options in Cardiovascular Medicine Springer Journals
