ACEVEDO, Mónica et al. Exercise and cardiac rehabilitation in secondary cardiovascular prevention. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2013, vol.141, n.10, pp.1307-1314. ISSN 0034-9887.

Exercise and cardiac rehabilitation are indications with type I A evidence in most secondary cardiovascular prevention guidelines. Rehabilitation programs not only include exercise but also provide integral care and education about cardiovascular risk factors. However there is a paucity of such programs in Chile. Moreover there is a lack of awareness about the benefits of exercise and there is lack of knowledge about the details of exercise prescription in secondary prevention. Therefore, the divulgation of this knowledge is of utmost importance.
