Cardiac Rehab Phases I, II, III
Cardiac Rehabilitation Phase I, II, III
Cardiac rehabilitation is conducted in three phases:
Phase I: Inpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation
Patients who are still in the hospital following a cardiac event or procedure will be seen by our cardiac rehabilitation staff. During evaluation, patients will learn about heart disease, including:
- Signs and symptoms
- Do's and Don'ts at home
- Medication instruction
Follow-up planning is provided for transition to outpatient care and Phase II: Early Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation.
Phase II: Early Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation
Phase II typically starts two weeks after a cardiac event or procedure and covers:
- Focused education
- Counseling - Managing stress is a major factor in successful recovery following a cardiac event or procedures. Our staff provides support and encouragement patients need for positive long-term outcomes.
- Exercise - Our state-of-the-art Center features advanced exercise equipment, including treadmills, exercise bikes, free weights and a multi-gym weight system.
Experienced cardiac nurses provide heart monitoring and personalized supervision during exercise in our outpatient facility.
Phase III: Maintenance and Prevention
Beginning two to three months following a cardiac event or procedure, patients have the option of a low-cost, safe alternative to traditional gyms to help with recovery. Rehabilitation staff manages member compliance with lifestyle changes during regularly scheduled follow-up appointments and continued education.
