The Cardiac Rehabilitation program at Palomar Health is a hospital based, medically supervised program that provides comprehensive services for the management and prevention of heart disease. It is designed to help people recover from a cardiac event, surgery or procedure.
Cardiac Rehabilitation is an important part of the treatment plan for people who have heart disease including:
- Stable Angina (chest pain)
- Heart Attack
- Heart Surgery such as Coronary Bypass or valve surgery
- Heart Transplantation
- Coronary Artery Angioplasty or stents
- Heart failure/Ventricular Assist devices
- Peripheral Artery Disease
Cardiac Rehabilitation has four components:
- Medical evaluation/orientation
- Physical activity
- Lifestyle modification/education
As a participant of the program, you receive personalized evaluation, monitored physical activity, risk factor education and support. This customized program will be developed by the Exercise Physiologist and/or Registered Nurse, in conjunction with your physician. The program lasts from 4 to 12 weeks, depending on your specific risk factors and functional ability. We also offer a maintenance program after you have completed the early outpatient portion of cardiac rehab.
Cardiac Rehab is more than just an exercise program - it is an important step in adopting the lifestyle changes necessary to improve your cardiac wellness.
