A physician can refer you to cardiopulmonary rehab following a qualifying event or diagnosis.
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.
Cardiac Rehabilitation is a 2-3 day per week program which can last 4-12 weeks depending on your goals and abilities.
If you have one of the following diagnoses,
you may be eligible to participate:
Coronary artery angioplasty or stents
Open heart surgery such as coronary bypass or valve surgery
