Rehabilitation of coronary patients and motor car driving

Rehabilitation of coronary patients and motor car driving

Annales de Readaptation et de Medecine Physique 30(4): 395-402

Motor car driving remains a distressing question for patients with coronary heart disease. This study of heart rate and electrocardiogram in 50 coronary patients, driving a motor car during the second period of their rehabilitation, indicates inocuity of this activity for the patients and their surroundings. Cardiac rehabilitation should also attempt to detect patients with high risk of sudden death, to lead them to a medical or surgical treatment and to guide their social and professional integration. These patients are potentially dangerous for other persons while driving a motor vehicle.
