BACKGROUND Heart rate recovery (HRR) at predischarge exercise stress test predicts all-cause mortality in patients with myocardial infarction (MI), but the relationship between improvement in HRR with exercise training and clinical outcomes remains unclear. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of change in HRR after exercise training on clinical outcomes in MI patients. METHODS The study included 386 consecutive patients with recent MI who were enrolled into our… CONTINUE READING
