  • Cardiac Rehabilitation is effective in managing Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), Ischemic Heart Disease (IHD), and Cardiomyopathy. Cardiac Rehabilitation is also effective in managing post-surgical heart valve surgery, Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery (CABG), Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) implantation, and heart transplants.

    Pulmonary Rehabilitation is used to manage Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Interstitial Lung Disease (i.e. pulmonary fibrosis, asbestosis, etc.), and Pulmonary Hypertension. It also aides in post-surgical lung resection, pneumonectomy and lung transplantation.

    The majority of our patients in Cardiac Rehabilitation are CHF and IHD patients. In our Pulmonary Rehabilitation program, most of our patients have COPD. Also, many of our patients have co-morbid conditions (COPD and CHF).

    The cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program features a multidiscipline approach to manage medically complex patients. The featured components of our program includes:

    Patient Assessment

     

    Evaluation:

    • Medical History: including cardiovascular (including peripheral vascular and cerebrovascular) and pulmonary diagnoses, prior cardiovascular procedures (including assessment of left ventricular function)symptoms, and co-morbidities
    • Medical assessments by our board – certified cardiologists and pulmonologists
    • Physical assessment by our highly skilled nursing and therapeutic staff

     

    Interventions:

    • Individual Treatment Plans which reflect the patient evaluation with detailed priorities for risk reduction and rehabilitation
    • Development and implementation of short-term and long-term goals and strategies to reduce disability and subsequent cardiovascular disease risk

     

    Nutritional Counseling

     

    Evaluation:

    • Obtain estimates of daily caloric intake and dietary content (fats, carbohydrates, protein)
    • Assess eating habits and alcohol consumption

     

    Interventions:

    • Individualize diet plan and educate patient and family/caregivers regarding dietary goals and how to attain them
    • Prescribe specific dietary modifications to improve lipid levels

     

    Hypertension

    • Assess treatment and compliance

     

    Smoking Cessation

     

    Evaluation:

    • Assessment of smoking status
    • Assess for confounding psychosocial issues

     

    Interventions:

    • Encourage physician, staff, and family support
    • Provide individual education and counseling by program staff, supplemented by self – learning materials
    Weight Management
    Diabetes Management
    Psychosocial Management
    Physical Activity Counseling

     

    Evaluation:

    • Assess current activity levels and determine domestic, occupational, and recreational needs

     

    Interventions:

    • Develop exercise program to meet individual needs and provide educational counseling
    • Advise low-impact aerobic activity to minimize risk of injury
    • Set goals to increase physical activity

     

    Exercise Training

     

    Evaluation:

    • Exercise evaluation, including assessment of heart rate and rhythm, signs, symptoms, ST segment changes and exercise capacity
    • Structured exercise program which may include EKG monitoring as deemed necessary
