Cardiac Rehabilitation Program details

What is Phase Two of cardiac rehabilitation?

Phase II Cardiac Rehab is supervised, outpatient program of exercise and education. Patients who need cardiac strengthening are referred by their physician and need not have completed Phase I, which is typically completed during an inpatient hospital stay. This phase lasts 12-18 weeks (36 visits) with hour-long medically supervised exercise conditioning three times a week.  You’ll receive patient education, nutritional guidance and advice on risk factor modification. Your physician is also advised of your progress. At the completion of this phase, another stress test is performed to measure your overall success. Our team of Certified Respiratory Therapists work closely with you and your physician to help you resume an active life.

What is Phase Three of cardiac rehabilitation?

Patients who have participated in Phase II are encouraged to maintain cardiac fitness by taking advantage of Phase III, which is free for all cardiac rehab patients. Exercise sessions are conducted much like those in Phase II with each patient now accepting further responsibility for self-monitoring and record keeping in the familiar surroundings of the Memorial Hospital Cardiac Rehabilitation program and under the supervision of our team of experts.
