Cardiac rehabilitation and pulmonary rehabilitation programs are strategic programs that are developed by your physical therapist. They are supervised programs to develop and implement exercise routines, utilizing charts and scales for self-monitoring for patients to gain confidence in their abilities to independently perform daily exercise and continue a healthy and active lifestyle. Cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation is more than walking or going onto a bike.
Our Phase III Cardiac Program is a supervised yet non-monitored telemetry program. Length of program is directly dependent on a patient's needs and goals, as well as their specific physician's recommendation. When patients complete Phase III, they are discharged with the knowledge and confidence to continue their home exercise program in a safe manner while utilizing charts and scales for independent self-monitoring.
