The interventional method was EECP and medical records and frequencies of self-reported chest pain were the research instruments. Frequencies of pain in both diabetic and nondiabetic groups during 7 weeks had linear reduction, but this reduction was significant only among nondiabetic patients (P< 0.0005).
