Cardiovascular diseases are one of the majorcause of mortality globally. Coronary heart disease is the largest subset of cardiovascular disease. Although mortality rates decline during time, hospital discharge data as a measure of morbidity rates are stable, leading to larger pool of patients eligible to benefit from cardiac rehabilitation.
