Phases of Cardiac Rehabilitation

The rehabilitation program includes three distinct phases, all designed to allow the patient to better manage their health following their procedure or event.

Phase I (inpatient) helps the patient re-acquaint themselves with normal, everyday activities immediately following surgery - like walking and sitting up in bed.

Please print the following forms, complete them to the best of your ability, and bring them to your first appointment. After reviewing them with the staff, you will sign and date them. Thanks for your cooperation in advance.

Phase II This begins soon after discharge and includes a progressive, telemetry-monitored exercise session and education. An exercise session consists of large muscle group activities such as treadmill walking, biking, Nu-step exerciser and arm exercises for 30 to 60 minutes, three times per week. The intensity of the exercise is adjusted individually depending upon your heart rate, blood pressure, electrocardiogram (EKG) and perceived exertion. Group and/or individual education is provided on Benefits of Exercise, Heart Facts & Medications, Heart Healthy Diet, Smoking Cessation and Stress Management. Spouses and family members are encouraged to attend group education classes. The goal of this program is to strengthen your heart and increase your endurance. The security of being monitored will help reduce your anxiety about exercise and physical activity at home.

Phase III, when medically appropriate, allows the patient to train independently to help strengthen their body.
