Blueprint for a Happy Life
Sunrise Hospital's Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Program provides education and support to patients as they transition to a healthier lifestyle. Our Cardiac Rehabilitation professionals work with you and your doctor in a team effort to provide you with a blueprint for a healthy life. Cardiac Rehabilitation is a monitored and supervised exercise and education program that allows patients who have been diagnosed with a heart condition to confidently resume their normal activities of daily living as quickly as possible. Some of the diagnoses that may benefit from Cardiac Rehab include:
- Myocardial infarction (heart attack)
- Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG)
- Chronic stable angina
- Congestive heart failure (CHF)
- Severe coronary artery disease (CAD)
- Coronary revascularization (angioplasty, stent)
- Pre-/postheart transplant
- Valve surgery
Licensed clinical professionals provide patients with a comprehensive medical management regimen, which includes exercise, nutrition, stress management, weight management and smoking cessation as well as medical and medication monitoring. Each patient's experience in the program is customized to his or her specific needs and disease history.
Our goal is to help improve your understanding of your disease, enhance your ability to control symptoms by making healthy choices and returning you to your highest level of activity. The program is tailored to a patient's specific disease history and needs. Throughout the program, rehabilitation professionals monitor and work with patients to decrease risk factors for disease through exercise and education, while keeping a patient's primary physician apprised of progress.
We're With You Every Step of the Way
Patients begin the program with an orientation process that includes a physical evaluation and the development of a personal treatment plan. The plan is designed to assist in achieving individual goals, while maintaining achievable lifestyle changes.
Your exercise prescription is based on your diagnosis and any special needs you may have. You will learn how to exercise safely in a monitored setting. Exercise goals are based on each patient's personal goals for his or her recovery. Individualized and group education based on patient needs is provided throughout the program so that each patient can learn more about heart disease and effective ways to manage cardiovascular and pulmonary risk factors.
The Cardiac Rehabilitation Team offers program participants a friendly and open environment that encourages and supports participants in the rehabilitation process. A family member/spouse is encouraged to participate in the educational sessions at no additional charge.
Patients should always discuss Cardiac Rehabilitation with their physician before starting this or any other exercise regimen. A physician's prescription is a requirement. Medicare and most insurance companies cover Phase ll Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation. Our staff can assist you with the insurance verification process prior to the start.
