Outpatient Cardiac Tele-Rehabilitation in a Public Sports Center

2019-10-16 10:39:38 | BioPortfolio


The aim of this study is to establish an innovative Cardiac Tele-Rehabilitation (CTR) model. It could expands assistance resources through coordination with public administrations, developing a physical exercise program (PEP) assistance model in phase II that resolves the current situation of lack of adherence in the PEP due in part to the long waiting time to start it. To sum up this study could improve adherence in Cardiac Rehabilitation Phase III. It represents an opportunity to validate an innovative model for the realization of the PEP for phase II that could be expanded to other centres.


Cardiac Rehabilitation (CR) programs show benefits in cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, exercise capacity, risk factors and quality of life. The use of new information and communication technologies (ICT) allows remote monitoring of activity and rhythm, defining a new model of cardiac tele-rehabilitation (CTR) and proving to be safe.

The investigators intend to evaluate a new model of CR in Phase II in acute coronary syndrome (ACS), based on the implementation of the physical exercise program (PEP) in a public sports centre (PSC) with tele-monitoring by means of a wearable electronic device, S-PATCH3-Cardio, to compare the adherence of a PEP based on a CTR-PSC model with the traditional in-hospital program (PEP-H) maintaining the efficacy and safety of the CR program.

Patients with recent stratified ACS of low and / or moderate risk will be included who will be randomly assigned to the PEP-H group who will perform 18 PEP sessions with strength training and cardiorespiratory resistance in a hospital, or a CTR-PSC group that performs the 18 sessions of the PEP with strength training and cardiorespiratory resistance in the PSC.

All patients will perform the rest of the CR program at the hospital that it includes: functional tests, consultations with nurse, cardiologist, rehabilitation doctor, and the educational program, with 10 Workshops in a Cardio-healthy Classroom.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A disorder of cardiac function secondary to hypersensitivity reactions. It is characterized by coexistence of acute coronary syndromes and cardiac MAST CELL and PLATELET ACTIVATION. It may be induced by exposure to drugs (e.g., antibiotics, anesthetics, contrast media), food, and environmental triggers (e.g., insect bites and stings, poison ivy).


The hospital unit in which patients with acute cardiac disorders receive intensive care.

A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries (CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE), to obstruction by a thrombus (CORONARY THROMBOSIS), or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart. Severe interruption of the blood supply to the myocardial tissue may result in necrosis of cardiac muscle (MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).

A malformation that is characterized by a muscle bridge over a segment of the CORONARY ARTERIES. Systolic contractions of the muscle bridge can lead to narrowing of coronary artery; coronary compression; MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATH.
