If you are recovering from a heart attack, coronary bypass surgery, angioplasty or other heart conditions, you can benefit from a cardiac rehabilitation program.
Research has shown that exercise improves cardiac patients' quality of life, both mentally and physically.
A monitored exercise program should begin four to six weeks after you leave the hospital. A registered nurse will watch what your heart is doing on a monitor and check your blood pressure while you exercise. You will come to our program and exercise three times per week. During this phase, which usually lasts for two or three months, you can also learn more about your heart disease risk factors and how to make lifestyle changes to prevent future cardiac events. The registered nurses at MidState will guide and support you during your rehabilitation. Your physician will be updated on your progress and direct your care.
