|HR (95% CI)||p Value|
|% Age-sex predicted METs achieved∗||0.76 (0.64–0.90)||0.001|
|Abnormal heart rate recovery at 1 min in recovery||0.89 (0.82–0.97)||0.007|
Defibrillators were not included in this analysis because defibrillator discharge was one of the primary endpoints. Overall chi-square: 34; p < 0.001.

↵∗ Because % of age-gender predicted METs incorporated absolute METs achieved along with age and sex, it was used in stepwise multivariate model.
