The goal of our cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program is to provide education, exercise training, and counseling to help patients safely reach their maximum levels of wellness.
We start in the hospital with exercise training and education on cardiac and pulmonary risk factors.
After release from the hospital we begin cardiopulmonary rehabilitation on an outpatient basis. It is offered on the first floor of the hospital near the emergency room entrance.
The rehabilitation program usually lasts six to twelve weeks and consists of three exercise sessions per week with individual education and counseling at each session. Classes are offered covering stress management, nutrition, exercise, weight management, diabetes management, smoking cessation and medication review.
We also offer a wellness program through which exercise training continues to develop lifetime fitness habits. Education and counseling are offered in the areas in which the patient exhibits an ongoing need.
Any patient who has heart or lung disease such as angina, heart failure, a heart attack, balloon angioplasty, open heart surgery, heart transplant, pacemaker or internal defibrillator recipients, chronic bronchitis, asthma or emphysema can benefit from our cardiopulmonary rehab program. Patients with risk factors for cardiopulmonary disease, such as diabetes, sedentary lifestyle, high blood pressure, smoking, obesity, high cholesterol and stress, can also be evaluated for lifestyle modification to promote wellness. We are happy to answer any questions you might have about our programs. For more information please call (941) 342-8080.
