 What to Expect

There are three phases of cardiac rehab: 

Phase 1 - Rehabilitation takes place in the hospital, immediately following a procedure or event.

Phase 2 - Begins after hospital discharge and focuses on aerobic exercise, education, and counseling for 12 – 36 weeks. Phase 2 is staffed by our cardiac nurses who monitor patients via telemetry, take vitals, and instruct in safe exercise progression utilizing the rehab department equipment.

Phase 3 - Supervised cardiac weight training and aerobic exercise following Phase 2, with vitals monitored throughout exercise.
