Randomized Clinical Trial by Conglomerates on the Efficacy of Maintenance of Physical Exercise in Myocardial Ischemia


Brief description of study

Main objective: To assess the efficacy of a phase III cardiac rehabilitation program (CRP), based on counseling in the maintenance of physical exercise (time of physical exercise per week) for patients with myocardial ischemia (MI), once the supervised physical exercise program of phase II of CRP is completed.

Secondary objectives: To assess the efficacy of a phase III program of CRP based on counseling in the maintenance of physical exercise for the patient with MI in: 1) the energy expenditure per week, 2) body mass index and abdominal perimeter, 3) control of cardiovascular risk factors (smoking, high blood pressure, dyslipidemia and diabetes mellitus), 4) quality of life related to health, 5) assess the adherence to cardiac pharmacological treatment.

Method: Randomized clinical trial in conglomerates, open and controlled. The intervention group will carry out phase III of CRP based on counseling in the maintenance of physical exercise. The control group will receive the usual care. The main outcome will be the physical exercise time per week after finish the supervised physical exercise program of phase II of CRP and at 6 and 12 month later according to the 7-day Physical Activity Recall.
