The cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program is for people diagnosed with heart disease, or who recently had heart surgery (stent, bypass, open heart). The program is also beneficial for those with COPD, asthma or symptomatic lung disease.
Our professional staff of nurses, exercise physiologists and respiratory therapists work with you to provide scheduled exercise and education sessions. You are monitored throughout your prescribed exercise times with the newest technology and computer programs to give feedback on your progress. In addition, you are educated on how your heart and lungs work, ways to decrease stress levels and how to choose healthy diets. If you have been diagnosed with cardiopulmonary disease, talk to your physician about how you can benefit from our program. Below is more information about cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation at Wise Health System.
Cardiac rehabilitation is an exercise and education program designed to improve your quality of life after you have experienced a heart attack or another heart problem. The program includes personalized exercise and educational programs to provide patients with the knowledge needed to make wise decisions about their health. Cardiac Rehab is divided into phases, with Phase I occurring during a patient’s hospital stay and the other phases beginning after a patient has been discharged from the hospital, or any time upon a physician’s referral. See below for more information of each phase.
Our Cardiac Rehab Team
The Cardiac Rehab team consists of registered nurses, a registered respiratory therapist, an exercise physiologist, a monitoring technician and insurance clerks. Registered dietitians, social workers, pharmacists and our medical director are also available to assist, when needed.
Pulmonary Rehabilitation is for people with lung conditions and diseases such as asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or experienced a lung transplant or other lung surgery. The goal of the program is to increase a person’s ability to complete normal, daily tasks using a lesser shortness of breath and to better manage their condition.
Pulmonary Rehab includes an individually tailored exercise and education program, and better equips a person with knowledge for making well-informed health decisions.
