OBJECTIVE: to establish the impact of heart rehabilitation in patients with heart failure of ischemic origin with ejection fraction <40% in terms of symptoms by subjective perception of the Borg scale, VO2, MET and distance in miles before and at the end of cardiovascular rehabilitation therapy. DESIGN: concurrent cohort study. POPULATION: 224 patients admitted to the Abood Shaio Clinic Foundation cardiac ehabilitation program in the period from December 10, 2004 to May 2, 2008. RESULTS: with regard to the impact of cardiac rehabilitation therapy at baseline, 63% of patients were in the modified one and two Borg scale and at the end, 85% of patients (p <0.001) was placed on the three and four scales; VO2 at baseline was 7.79 and to the end 19.04 (p <0.001); the METS at the beginning was 2.22 and at the end 5.44 (p <0.001) and distance in miles per hour at the beginning was 1, 33 and at the end 2.58 (p <0.001). CONCLUSIONS: it was found that cardiac rehabilitation had a significant impact in patients with ischemic heart failure with left ventricular ejection fraction <40% in terms of subjective perception of symptoms in the Borg scale, indirect VO2 , METS and distance in miles per hour.
