After cardiac surgery or a heart attack, starting cardiac rehabilitation
in a monitored and supportive environment is the first step toward life-long
strategies for improved health.
At Good Sam, rehab starts even before patients leave the hospital. Phase
I Cardiac Rehab includes nutrition information, stress management techniques,
and recommendations about beginning a personal fitness program based on
each patient's individual circumstances.
Physicians may prescribe our Phase II 12-week program of progressive exercise
with monitoring by Registered Nurses. The program includes planning for
the patient's transition to self-managed fitness, risk reduction,
and support services in the community.
