Abstract

Background Using data from the Italian SurveY on carDiac rEhabilitation (ISYDE-2008), this study provides insight into the level of implementation of cardiac rehabilitation in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). Methods Data from 165 Italian cardiac rehabilitation units were collected online from 28 January to 10 February 2008. Results The study cohort consisted of 2281 patients (66.9W±11.8 years): 285 (71.3±12.2 years, 66% male) CHF patients and 1996 (66.3±11.6 years, 74% male) non-CHF patients. Compared with non-CHF, CHF patients were older, showed more comorbidity, had lower left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction and reduced access to functional evaluation, underwent more complications during cardiac rehabilitation, and had longer length of in-hospital stay. CHF patients were also more likely to be transferred to ICU (9 versus 3%, P
