"They concluded that there is an "urgent need to implement interventions that increase physical activity after ACS." Exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation is one approach to counteracting traditional fears of exercise after heart attack, they suggested, though such programs don't get enough participation.
Alternatively, "objectively monitoring physical activity and providing real-time feedback to patients and clinicians may be a disseminable approach for increasing physical activity in ACS survivors," they stated."
