Abstract

Coronary heart disease is a serious threat to human health. In China, medical care for the population has been focused on therapy with little follow-up of treated patients. The efficacy of therapy; however, is highly dependent on post-therapy recovery. Cardiac rehabilitation can significantly enhance patient physical strength and help delay and prevent the development of coronary atherosclerosis. Although the clinical significance of cardiac rehabilitation has been established, the compliance of patients is generally low. In efforts to improve patient compliance, domestic and foreign researchers have extensively studied and applied treatment models of cardiac rehabilitation according to the specific conditions and cultural background of each country. This study aimed to review the treatment models of cardiac rehabilitation in patients with coronary heart disease and related factors affecting patient compliance to provide a better perspective of how patients with coronary heart disease can benefit from cardiac rehabilitation.
