Abstract
The aim of this retrospective study was to compare the appropriateness of cardiac risk factors (CV-RF) management in a Swiss cardiac rehabilitation center. The comparison of the control of CV-RF among 342 patients with coronary artery disease (CHD) aged > or =65 years was improved. The CV-RF management has globally improved during the two periods of observation (1994-95 and 1999-2000). Nevertheless, according to the recommendations published between 1994 and 1999, an underuse of the cardioprotective agents was still observed. Using a standardized protocol for the management of CHD which allows the benchmarking among the network of cardiac rehabilitation centers network could increase the quality of care for such high risk patients.
