BACR Guidelines for Cardiac Rehabilitation Summary

BACR Guidelines for Cardiac Rehabilitation by Andrew Coats

The last three years have seen tremendous advances in the growth of cardiac rehabilitation programmes within the UK and throughout Europe. The formation of the British Association for Cardiac Rehabilitation (BACR) has been a milestone in the development of a professional network which aims to improve the safety and standards of programmes throughout the UK. This volume should be a useful tool for practitioners working in cardiac rehabilitation, not only for those looking for guidance in setting up a new scheme, but also for those already running programmes. It provides an overview of research findings, and areas covered include the structure, content, personnel, administration and funding of a programme, as well as detailed information on exercise testing and prescription, motivating adults to exercise and other psycho-social aspects of cardiac rehabilitation.

About Andrew Coats

Andrew Justin Stewart Coats was born February 1, 1958 in Melbourne. He is an Australian-British academic cardiologist who has particular interest in the management of heart failure. His research turned established teaching on its head and promoted exercise training (rather than bed rest) as a treatment for chronic heart failure. He was instrumental in describing the "muscle hypothesis" of heart failure. In addition to this, Coats is also a successful fundraiser, university administrator, and inventor. His Imperial College patents have formed the basis of companies specialising in the treatment of cachexia (Myotec and PsiOxus).

Stewart Coats was educated at Melbourne Grammar School, where he was proxime accessit Head of School and a School Officer; St Catherine's College, Oxford, where he graduated with a B.A. in Physiological Sciences with First-Class Honours and won the Rose Prize; and Clare College, Cambridge, where he read medicine, earning a M.B. B.Chir., and was top of his year with two distinctions.
