Considering the high mortality and morbidity rate associated with cardiovascular diseases, Cardiac rehabilitation (CR) is regarded for prevention and management of cardiovascular diseases. CR services are generally provided in an outpatient as comprehensive, long-term programs involving medical evaluation, prescribed exercise, cardiac risk factor modification, education and counseling. This includes nutritional therapies, weight loss program management of lipid abnormalities with diet and medication, blood pressure control, diabetes management and stress management. The exercise component of a total approach to rehabilitation helps to overcome the fears and anxieties that so many people experience after a heart attack. Aerobic exercise training program improves cardiovascular fitness in both healthy individual and cardiac patients. Cardiac rehabilitation prevents and treat cardiovascular disease, reduces cardiac risk factors, improving patient’s exercise capacity and enhancing quality of life. Aerobic exercise with intensity of approximately 60 to 70% of the maximal heart rate for 30 to 60 minutes, 3 to 4 times a week, for 4 to 6 weeks enhances exercise capacity.
