What is Cardiac Rehabilitation?

Experiencing a cardiac event, such as angina, heart attack or open heart surgery can have a major impact on you and your family. Often there is a fear of being unable to resume normal activities.

Cardiac Rehabilitation is the process by which persons with or at risk of cardiovascular disease, may be restored to and maintained at their best physical, emotional, social, and vocational levels.

Atrium Health Navicent Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation, a service of Atrium Health Navicent, offers a cardiac rehabilitation program with a supportive medical and allied health staff. Our program incorporates education, counseling and exercise to help you reach your optimal level of well-being and self- sufficiency.

Early outpatient rehabilitation is designed for individuals who have recently experienced a cardiac event and have been discharged from the hospital. Most patients exercise three days a week for a period up to 12 weeks. All exercising patients are supervised and monitored for ECG, blood pressure, and heart rate, exercise is adjusted as needed.

A Disease Management program is available to participants who are at risk for Heart Disease, but have not experienced a cardiac event.
