Cardiac Rehabilitation

Research shows that participation in medically-supervised physical activity after a cardiac event can lower a person’s future risk of a heart attack, as well as help them live longer than a patient who does not participate in cardiac rehab. The chances for survival improve for those who take part in these life-saving programs.

Appropriate candidates

A physician referral is required to participate in a cardiac rehab program. And your cardiologist or primary care provider can best determine if and when you are ready to begin. You may be a candidate if you have experienced any of the following:

  • Recent heart attack
  • Angioplasty and/or stent
  • Heart bypass | Transplant | Valve surgery
  • Stable angina | Chronic heart failure

Cardiac rehabilitation

The phases of cardiac rehabilitation at the CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Louis and Peaches Owen Heart Hospital – Tyler guide you on the road to recovery not only with the tools you need to lead a healthy and active lifestyle, but with the support of a team committed to your success.

Phase I | Inpatient cardiac rehab

Before leaving the heart hospital, you will receive nutritional information, heart health risk factor education, and home mobility/exercise instructions from your cardiac rehab team.

Phase II | Outpatient cardiac rehab

Upon returning home, in addition to team social support, each participant receives a personalized medically-supervised exercise program, that includes education on nutritional and lifestyle habits to help reduce risk factors associated with heart disease.
