  • Analyses adjusted for age, gender, number of comorbidities, duration of CR (days), BMI, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, smoking status, ethnicity, treatment, baseline fitness status.

  • OR, p value and 95% confidence intervals (CI).

  • BMI, body mass index; CR, cardiac rehabilitation; QoL, quality of life.
