4 months of supervised physical training carried out by 70 male postinfarction patients resulted in a 30% statistically significant increase in the total work load achieved, an increased VO<sub>2</sub> and O<sub>2</sub> pulse, with an equally significant double-product (DP) decrease. Follow-up ergometric tests performed by 35 patients 24 months after rehabilitation exhibited DP comparable to those found at the end of the program. R wave change during exercise ECG, ejection fraction detected by a nuclear probe, echocardiographic assessment of left ventricular performance were compared with training results. The CPI and IPAT tests were used for psychological evaluation. After rehabilitation, the 50% Sten score drop shows that the patients reached almost normal anxiety levels.
