dc.description.abstractThe Effects of Cardiac Rehabilitation on Medical and Surgical Patients The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of cardiac rehabilitation on self-esteem, exercise capacity, and perceived exercise capacity of ·medical and surgical patients. The sample consisted of 11 men and 6 women between the ages of 32-81 years with a mean age of 56.5 years. All subjects participated in 12 weeks of cardiac rehabilitation. Chi square analysis revealed no significant difference in the groups based upon demographic data. Paired I-tests revealed' that cardiac patients have increased self-esteem (p.=.002); perceived exercise capacity (p = .001), and actual exercise capacity (p = .01) after completing a cardiac rehabilitation program. Analysis of ' covariance indicated that surgical patients do not differ significantly from medical patients in levels of self-esteem, perceived exercise capacity, or actual exercise capacity. Spearman rank order correlation revealed that there was a ' I positive correlation between : self-esteem as measured by the Rosenberg Self- Esteem Scale (RSE) and perceived exercise capacity as measured by the Ference-Gueldner Picture Form of the Ference Field Motion Tool (FGPFFM). Results of the study demonstrated that although medical and surgical patients did not differ significantly in self-esteem and exercise capacity, cardiac rehabilitation programs assist all cardiac patients tested to restore physical capacity and psychosocial functioning.en_US
