Cardiac Rehabilitation

Infirmary Health’s cardiac rehabilitation program offers medically supervised exercise, education, and counseling to patients with cardiovascular diseases. The program assists them in leading productive and active lives. 

Patients of all ages and with many forms of heart disease benefit from the program, particularly if your medical history includes:

  • Heart attack
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Heart failure
  • Chest pain (angina)
  • Cardiomyopathy (heart muscle disease)
  • Certain congenital heart diseases
  • Coronary artery bypass surgery
  • Angioplasty and stents
  • Heart transplant
  • Heart valve replacements
  • Peripheral arterial disease

Patients attend three exercise sessions a week. Depending on the prescribed routine, these sessions may include walking, workouts in the exercise room or supervised classes. Patients receive information on nutrition, smoking, stress, obesity and other risk factors.

Benefits of cardiac rehabilitation include:

  • Decreased blood pressure
  • Reduced shortness of breath and fatigue in people with heart failure
  • Increased endurance
  • Lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Decreased emotional stress, depression and anxiety
  • Increased quality of life
