FACT: According to the American Heart Association (AHA), people who participate in a cardiac rehabilitation program following a cardiac event significantly reduce their risk of future cardiac events. The Elliot Hospital's Cardiac Rehabilitation Program can help individuals identify and modify their risk for heart disease.
Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation is a hospital-based, medically supervised, lifestyle modification and exercise program. Beginning after discharge from the hospital, participants attend cardiac rehabilitation three days a week for a minimum of six weeks.
Our experienced and caring healthcare professionals provide support to alleviate any fear or anxiety patients may experience about their condition, increasing activity and exercise or returning to work.
Exercise conditioning improves the heart's ability to do its work and helps individuals achieve a healthy and enjoyable way of life.
Through education, patients can better understand heart disease, learn how to prevent future complications, and make positive lifestyle choices.
A personal exercise plan will be developed for each patient, based on his or her needs, abilities and goals. A nurse and exercise specialist closely monitor blood pressure, heart rate and heart rhythm during exercise sessions. Patients are taught how to exercise safely on a variety of cardiovascular equipment (treadmills, cycles, rowers).
Education classes provide information about living with heart disease and include:
Family and friends are invited to attend sessions
The Elliot Cardiac Rehabilitation Team is comprised of a variety of healthcare professionals, including:
A physician referral is required. Most insurance carriers, as well as Medicare, cover Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation. The Cardiac Rehab staff will assist patients with the insurance process.
