Return to work after stroke should consider whether from a functional point of view these workers could be incorporated or not his work, something that in many cases, it is possible. However, it does not occur, since, when it comes to life on others, the law is much more demanding. For example, in the event that a worker suffered an (ischemic heart disease is the leading cause of death in developed countries), once treated and stabilized it has to be done is to measure their functional capacity by a risk assessment, check if you can reinstate the previously developed activity or whether it is appropriate to change trabajo.Dicha type evaluation is done through a series of tables that stratify the level of effort and energy consumption in METS (amount of oxygen consuming to make an effort) based on performance in a stress test or stress test. These tables quantify the consumption required by each work activity. For example, a work office has a two METS consumption, driving a truck is a consumption of between three and four METS, work with a spade seven METS four kilos, and so on. Return to work after suffering a heart attack Group I, low risk: typically may reinstate a period of about two months to work minimal or mild stress and three months for moderately intense efforts. Group II, medium risk: these patients meet criteria for permanent incapacity to work with responsibility for others. The rest could continue his work provided it does not exceed the capacity achieved with exercise testing. Group III, high risk: they should never join a job that requires effort at moderate or high if you can not provide a solution to your problem and are therefore candidates to be assessed for permanent disability.
