Were studied psychovegetative and somatic correlations in 115 patients with ischemic heart disease, having aortocoronary shunting operation and being at the sanatorium stage of the medical rehabilitation. To 70 patients was been carried out treatment with application of autogenous training (AT), to 45--without use of AT. The research has confirmed the presence in the patients psychological disadaptation, expressed essentially in asthenoneurotic and hypochondriac reactions. Is established, that estimation of expressiveness of emotional tension, investigated with the aid of Spilberger's psychometric scale, can be confirmed by parameters of peroxide oxidation of lipids and mathematical analysis of heart rythm. The use of variant of training modified by the authors has revealed improvement of clinical parameters, reflecting health state of the patients, which correlate with the data of the psychological test and the results of bicycle ergometry [correction of veloergometry].
