What Is Cardiac Rehabilitation?
A cardiac rehabilitation program takes place in a hospital or in the community. "Cardiac Rehab" is for patients who are recovering from a heart attack, heart surgery, angioplasty/stent, angina or diagnosed coronary artery disease and individuals who are at high risk of developing heart disease. One of the best things you can do for yourself is to get in a cardiac rehab program. At Bayonne Medical Center, everything you need to get and stay heart healthy is in one place and the medical staff is on hand at all times.
Cardiac Rehabilitation programs can help you change your lifestyle habits. These programs often take place at a hospital with a rehabilitation team or with the help of your doctor, nurse or other health care professionals.
Many people find that cardiac rehab programs are very helpful after getting out of a hospital. They allow people to join a group to exercise and to get special help in making lifestyle changes.
What happens in a cardiac rehabilitation program?
During your cardiac rehabilitation program you'll:
Exercise using a treadmill, bike, or rowing machine
Be monitored by a nurse or another health care professional for a change in symptoms
Start slowly, following a safe exercise program that gradually helps you to become stronger.
Gradually move into a more intensive program that lets you work longer and harder.
Possibly begin strength training if your doctor says you can.
Have your heart rate, blood pressure and EKG monitored
After you've completed the program, you may feel better than ever. Make these lifestyle changes a part of your everyday life!
