Cardiac Rehabilitation Goals



Cardiac rehabilitation (rehab) is comprised of medical programs designed to restore the physical and psychological condition of patients who have recently experienced a cardiac event.

Cardiac rehabilitation targets patients who have experienced:

  • Heart failure;
  • Recent heart attack or some other cardiac event;
  • Heart surgery or angioplasty;
  • Arrhythmia or implantation of a pacemaker / defibrillator.

The benefits of cardiac rehabilitation

Cardiac rehabilitation programs are custom designed and involve a team of medical professionals (Cardiologist, nurses, family doctor, nutritionist, exercise specialist, psychologist) that create a plan to meet the patient’s needs.
