Our Cardiac Rehabilitation program offers a safe method of adapting to a new way of life for those who have suffered a heart attack, had cardiac procedures or undergone bypass surgery. Our program also offers people a controlled and safe way to learn their own exercise safety level. Participants enjoy involvement with people who have heart problems similar to their own and appreciate the special care given by Jan Pistole, RN, CEN, Rehab Coordinator. Each participant’s exercise intensity is monitored utilizing prescribed heart rates, blood pressures, signs, symptoms and perceived exertion. Patient education regarding Coronary Artery Disease and its risk factors is also part of the program. While the program is very structured, the atmosphere is friendly and informal.
Our Pulmonary Rehabilitation program is for persons with chronic lung diseases such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, asthma, brochiectasis or interstitial lung disease. Each patient’s exercise program is individualized with intensity, duration, frequency and mode and modified as the patient progresses. Oxymetry monitoring is provided during exercise periods.
Our Prevention and Wellness Exercise Program is designed to develop and maintain fitness through a program of aerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise is used to reduce the risks of diabetes, obesity, peripheral vascular disease, hypertension, high cholesterol and others. Personalized, supervised exercise sessions for aerobic conditioning are available on a scheduled basis. Each session consists of 20-30 minutes of aerobic activity. Patients learn how to measure their own blood pressure and pulse. The cost of these sessions is based upon the “package” chosen. Payment is received prior to beginning the program. Before you begin this program an evaluation will need to be completed, including a history and an assessment. An approval form, signed by your physician, is also required.
