Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The study presents data regarding the functional assessment and prognosis of acute myocardial infarction survivors resident in Prague 4 and an industrial region in north Bohemia. No demonstrable differences between the incidence of myocardial infarction in various professions were found. Acute myocardial infarction occurred in 0.52-0.73% of the total number of workers enrolled in the study. Rehabilitation programmes succeeded in significantly increasing working tolerance, overall performance, and in decreasing the heart rate/blood pressure index within the first six months after acute myocardial infarction. In patients resuming their original jobs, all these parameters were substantially more favourable than in those not seeking re-employment. Prognosis was assessed in 1072 patients. The 10-year mortality was 52.1%. Of the survivors, 30% of patients returned to work, and 24% and 46% remained in partial and full-time retirement, respectively.
