DGRW Update: Rehabilitation in Cardiovascular Diseases. What's New in Cardiac Rehabilitation?

Summary of "DGRW Update: Rehabilitation in Cardiovascular Diseases. What's New in Cardiac Rehabilitation?"


BACKGROUND:
A quality goal of medical rehabilitation is ongoing and continuous development of service standards orientated by the patient and new research findings. Because of the stark increase of research findings in the field of rehabilitation, it becomes difficult for the responsible rehabilitation providers to keep up to date on new findings and to realize the transfer of knowledge. Hence, the aim was to establish a literature research which surveys current national and international results in cardiac rehabilitation.
METHODS:
The literature search was undertaken using the electronic databases OVID and includes publications from 2009 and the first 2 months of 2010. The selection of studies was performed in a team of experts based on the criteria of relevance, usefulness and methodological quality of research for rehabilitation.
RESULTS:
26 primary sources were selected, mainly focusing the fields "Cardiac rehabilitation: indications", "Risk factors and prevention", "Job-related reintegration", "Rehabilitation of specific medical disease patterns" and "New rehabilitation models".
CONCLUSION:
The studies examined show very clearly that cardiac patients can benefit from participation in cardiac rehabilitation treatment and that prevention represents a central task of medical care in the long-term treatment of coronary diseases. There is a need for further research, especially concerning the topics "New rehabilitation models" and "Job-related reintegration". The DGRW Update intends to depict current developments and to promote evidence-based medicine in rehabilitation.

Unexpected rapid natural death due to cardiovascular collapse within one hour of initial symptoms. It is usually caused by the worsening of existing heart diseases. The sudden onset of symptoms, such as CHEST PAIN and CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS, particularly VENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA, can lead to the loss of consciousness and cardiac arrest followed by biological death. (from Braunwald's Heart Disease: A Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, 7th ed., 2005)

A rehabilitation therapy for removal of copious mucus secretion from the lung of patients with diseases such as CHRONIC BRONCHITIS; BRONCHIECTASIS; PULMONARY ABSCESS; or CYSTIC FIBROSIS. The patient's head is placed in a downward incline (so the TRACHEA is inferior to the affected area) for 15- to 20-minute sessions.
