In brief: The patient!
The most important predictor of success in cardiac rehab is the consistency of attendance at the sessions.
Usually rehab is scheduled for three hours per week for 12 weeks. The intensity of the exercise performed is a major factor in achieving improved conditioning. Attention to the educational component is important to achieve lifestyle changes which help control risk factors for heart disease.
