Our Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation program is focused on helping cardiac and pulmonary patients build physical strength and stamina through exercise while enhancing quality of life. Education is provided on topics such as risk factors, stress management, exercise principles, nutrition, medications, and smoking cessation. Participants will attend rehab 2-3 times per week. The program consists of 3 phases, Cardiac Rehabilitation Phase II, Pulmonary Rehabilitation Phase II, and Cardiac Wellness.
Cardiac Rehab Phase II is appropriate for patients who have undergone bypass surgery, stent placement, valve replacement, heart transplant, heart attack in the last 12 months, stable angina, or congestive heart failure. Patients blood pressure, heart rate and rhythm will be monitored.
Pulmonary Rehab Phase II is appropriate for those who have a diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Patients oxygen saturation and blood pressure will be monitored.
Cardiac Wellness is a program for patients who wish to continue with their exercise after either Phase II is complete. It is also appropriate for those with stable coronary disease, congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and anyone at risk for heart disease who would benefit from exercise. This program is not covered by insurance therefore a fee will be charged.
