Join us as Master of Science in Applied Life Sciences student Savannah Creel speaks about “A Retrospective Analysis of the Efficacy of Clinical Cardiac Rehabilitation for Patients with Concurrent Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Atrial Fibrillation (AF) at Kaiser Permanente – Riverside.”
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the number one leading cause of death in the United States and around the world. Since its inception in the late 1960’s, Cardiac rehabilitation globally has decreased CVD mortality by 26% over three years and repeat hospitalizations by 31% in the year after an acute coronary event. Studies show that this intervention is important for the full recovery of cardiovascular patients, reducing all-cause readmission rates and mortality. This study will evaluate any benefit conferred to patients who underwent CR for a diagnosis of CAD with concurrent AF at Kaiser Permanente – Riverside’s Clinical Cardiac Rehabilitation Center.
