In this study, called EMMACE-3, 4,570 patients admitted to 48 hospitals in England with a suspected heart attack from 2011 to 2013 were included. The participants filled in questionnaires during their stay at the hospital and 1,6, and 12 months after discharge. The questionnaire included questions concerning cardiac rehabilitation visits, the possibility to notice the quality of life, and physical activity.

Study author Dr. Ben Hurdus says: “Cardiac rehabilitation involves not only exercise but also advice on lifestyle and medications which likely all contribute to making people feel better. There are also the added social benefits such as being around other people in a similar situation and having that shared sense of community. People who also do more than the recommended minimum of 150 minutes of activity per week report even higher quality of life.”
