The schedules and operative times of early rehabilitation after acute myocardial infarction are discussed. The study includes 173 cases of male patients with acute transmural myocardial infarction undergoing controlled rehabilitation by Centro Medico di Riabilitazione di Montescano with spiroergometric evaluation in both initial and final phases and subsequent follow-up at 3, 6 and 12 months after discharge. The course of some physiological parameters (TW, HR, VO2, AP) has been examined during controlled rehabilitation and the follow-up, together with clinical parameters such as mortality, overall complications, smoking habits, compliance to the training program and return to work within the year following discharge. The results suggest the usefulness of controlled rehabilitation r184w4 =A = 90±30 and satisfactory compliance to training in the follow-up. Considering, however, that phase 4 rehabilitation should be continued indefinitely, the authors suggest that, in order to maintain the results obtained in the early phase, Sport Medicine, for its intrinsic social function and not only at agonistic sport service, should be regarded as the logical progression of the rehabilitation of the ischemic patient both concerning the training procedures and the basic clinical control.
