About the Book

Cardiac rehabilitation programs improve outcomes but little is known on the influence of gender. As such, an analysis was conducted in a non-traditional cardiac rehabilitation program. Three hundred and ninety four patients were studied (94 F, 300 M). The initial LDL-C values did not differ between men and women (mean 2.80+/- 0.84 mmol/L), but HDL-C values were higher in women (1.3+/- 0.4 vs. 1.0 +/- 0.3 p = 0.001). At the 2 year follow up the LDL-C values did not differ (2.45 mmol/L +/- 0.72 vs. 2.49 mmol/L +/- 0.64 p = 0.284), nor was there a statistically significant difference in reduction in LDL- C (0.45+/- 0.78 vs. 0.28 +/- 0.9 mmol/L, mean change 0.33 +/- 0.87 p = 0.112). Women were less fit at entry into the program (baseline treadmill time 6.2 min +/-2.7 vs. 8.3 min +/-2.7, p < 0.001), however both sexes improved equally with respect to exercise time (mean improvement 1.2 +/- 2.2 min). In the 2 year follow-up, women had no difference compared to men with regard to LDL-C reduction and exercise tolerance, in a home based cardiac rehabilitation program.
