Our cardiac rehabilitation program is designed to reduce the risk of future heart problems by helping patients understand heart disease and develop a healthy lifestyle.
You need your doctor's approval to get started in cardiac rehab. Tell your doctor or nurse that you're interested in cardiac rehab and ask which rehab services or plans are best for you.
Cardiac rehab services can involve many healthcare providers. Your team may include: Doctors (your family doctor, a heart specialist, perhaps a surgeon), physician assistants/nurse practitioners, nurses, exercise specialists, respiratory therapists, physical and occupational therapists, dietitians, psychologists or other behavior therapists.
A support network can help you. Your support network may be family, friends, or a group of other people with heart problems.
Family members and friends can make a difference. They may want to learn more about heart problems so their help can be even more valuable. For example, family members may have to learn to let you do things for yourself. Or they may want to learn about preparing heart-healthy meals. Your family and friends can give you emotional support as you adjust to a new, healthier lifestyle.
You may also want the support of other people who have heart disease. Ask your cardiac rehab team if they know of a support group you can join.
Sanford's cardiac rehabilitation program is certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR).
Sanford's cardiac rehab is a medically supervised program designed to help heart patients recover more quickly and to improve their overall physical, mental and social functioning. Cardiac rehab also helps patients decrease their risk for another cardiac event. National research shows that cardiac death is 26 percent lower in patients who participated in a certified rehabilitation program, compared with those who did not.
