Disability in Myocardial Infarction is due to:

  1. Recurrent Angina

  2. Reinfarction

  3. Heart Failure

  4. Arrhythmias

  5. Sudden Death

Psychological distress is a well-recognized comorbidity of a myocardial infarction and may initiate a vicious cycle for the patient, delaying or complicating recovery.

Clinical depression is well recognized after an AMI.

Numerous studies have shown a direct negative correlation between the severity of the Ml and return to work.

Increased hospital stay after myocardial infarction has subsequently been correlated with decreased return-to-work rates.

A direct intervention by cardiac rehabilitation programs has been shown in some studies to increase the percentage of patients returning to work and remaining at work long-term.
