Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation

Cardiac rehabilitation is a comprehensive, individualized program that includes supervised exercise training, nutritional counseling, stress management, and risk factor reduction. Outcomes such as returning to an active lifestyle, adjusting to new eating habits, reducing the number of and/or amount of medications you need to take or simply having more energy for daily activities are some of the individual goals that are emphasized.

The rehabilitation staff includes nurses, exercise physiologists, and respiratory therapists. Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation is covered by most types of health insurance for a wide variety of heart conditions and procedures. For more information speak with your doctor or call the Cardiovascular Nurse Navigator @ 610-220-0432.
