After a cardiovascular event such as a heart attack, surgery or angioplasty or a diagnosis of asthma, bronchitis or emphysema, it is normal to be cautious, even a little afraid of losing some quality of life. It is at this point, and often in an apprehensive frame of mind, that patients are referred to our cardiovascular or pulmonary rehabilitation programs.
Our goals for cardiovascular care are to improve the quality of life and well-being of those who have experienced a cardiovascular event and to provide an atmosphere that promotes recovery, self-confidence and self-awareness.
Treatment teams for cardiovascular disease or lung disease could include physicians, nurses, therapists, dietitians, pharmacists, clinical educators, diabetes educators and / or social workers who put together a personal program designed to help you feel better through:
Regular monitoring keeps you on track working toward your goals.
