The purpose of Cardiac Rehabilitation is to provide exercise and education during medical supervision to individuals with coronary atherosclerotic disease, whether they are post myocardial infraction, post coronary artery by pass, or angina. the objectives include improving the patient's cardiovascular fitness without exceeding safe limits of exercise, to educate concerning cardiovascular disease, to aid in risk factor reduction, to assist in return to work, and to promote psychological adjustment.
The Cardiac Rehabilitation Program generally begins immediately post discharge from the hospital lasting for approximately 12 weeks or 36 sessions and at 3 sessions per week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday). The length of each session is approximately one hour. Patients must be referred into the program by a physician and meet documented entry requirements. Nurses with the aid of telemetry monitors watch patients closely during exercises. Blood pressures are monitored on each patient pre and post exercise and based on the individual's need.
