New AHA, ACC, AACVPR Statement on Home-based Cardiac Rehab

For patients who need cardiac rehabilitation (CR) but find it difficult to go to a clinic that offers it, home-based, medically supervised CR may be an alternative, suggests a joint scientific statement from the American Heart Association (AHA), American College of Cardiology (ACC), and the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR).

The scientific statement on home-based CR was published May 13 in Circulation, the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, and published May 10 in the Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation and Prevention.

Home-based CR "may be a reasonable option for selected clinically stable low- to moderate-risk patients who are eligible for CR but cannot attend a traditional center-based CR program," concludes the writing group.
