Benefits of cardiac rehabilitation include a 20-30% reduction in all-cause mortality rates; decreased mortality up to 5 years following rehabilitation; reduced symptoms of dyspnea, angina, and fatigue; reduction in nonfatal recurrent myocardial infarction over follow-up period of 12 months; and increased exercise performance.
