Cardiac rehabilitation

Whether you are recovering from an episode of chest pain or major heart surgery, Shannon Cardiac Rehabilitation is there to help!

Cardiac rehabilitation is a multifaceted, individualized team approach to recovery from heart disease. The cardiac rehab team is a group of professionals, including physicians, registered nurses, fitness specialists, registered dietitians and pharmacists. The cardiac rehab team has four basic goals for each patient:

  • Monitor and improve a patient's physical condition to ensure a safe recovery.
  • Promote healthy lifestyle changes to avoid future heart problems.
  • Improve a patient's psychological well-being.
  • Increase a patient's knowledge and understanding of cardiovascular disease.

Cardiac rehabilitation requires a physician's referral and a primary evaluation.
