Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac Rehab is a comprehensive, medically supervised program that should be done after a patient has had cardiac surgery or treatment for a heart issue such as a heart attack or congestive heart failure. Cardiac Rehab helps your heart recover and become stronger. Cardiac Rehab programs include 36 sessions completed at a rate of 2 to 3 times per week but can vary depending on your doctor’s recommendations. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men, women, and people of most racial and ethnic groups in the United States. Individuals who attend 36 sessions have a 47% lower risk of death.

A Cardiac Rehab program combines:

– Exercise training
– Cardiac risk factor changes
– Heart health education
– Diet and nutrition counseling
– Emotional support

Cardiac Rehab is vital for people that have had issues with their heart:

– Heart attack (myocardial infarction)
– Congestive heart failure
– Coronary artery disease
– Use of a ventricular assist device
– Stable angina
– Heart or heart-lung transplant
– Heart valve repair or replacement
– Pacemaker or implantable cardioverter defibrillator
– Coronary artery angioplasty with or without a stent

Outcome or Cardiac Rehab:

– Decrease risk of future cardiac event
– Improved strength
– Learning and implementing a heart-healthy diet
– Modifying risk factors like obesity and help with smoking cessation
– Improvement in stress management skills
