Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation

What is Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation?

Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation also known as Cardiac Rehab is a medically supervised program designed to improve heart function after heart problems or surgery. It includes monitored exercise sessions, visits with a dietitian on nutrition, and education on heart healthy living, medications, risk factors and lifestyle changes. 

Why would I go to Cardiac Rehab?

Cardiac Rehab helps to strengthen your heart following a heart attack or surgery. It gives you tools you need to better manage your health including help controlling risk factors such as high blood pressure and cholesterol. Cardiac Rehab can lower the chances of having a 2nd heart attack or heart surgery and can reduce the overall risk of dying or having a future cardiac event.

How do I make an appointment?

A physician can refer you to cardiac rehab following a qualifying event including but not limited to a heart attack, stent, or open-heart surgery. 


I want to make an impact at Greater Regional Health by being a team player that goes the extra mile, being aware of tasks that need to be completed without being asked and always looking for ways to improve services.
