Cardiopulmonary Services offers programs that are aimed at better understanding and future prevention of serious cardiac and respiratory illnesses.
Cardiac Rehabilitation is comprised of two main phases – Phase I and Phase II. Following graduation from our Phase II program, patients are encouraged to continue their progress/recovery in the Medical Center’s wellness center.
Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation (Phase II)
Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation (Phase II) is a program designed to help patients live a healthy, active life after a cardiac event. Staff and patients work as a team to achieve this goal through exercise, counseling, and health education.
Individualized treatment plans for each patient using appropriate modalities including treadmills, stationary bicycles, recumbent steppers, and weights.
Heart rates and rhythms are continuously monitored and vital signs are frequently assessed throughout rehab sessions. This helps to ensure a safe path to recovery and return to your normal activities.
Sessions are led by a nurse, exercise physiologist or respiratory therapist.
