The Outpatient Cardiopulmonary Rehab program at St. Vincent’s East helps you gain strength and return to your regular routine as quickly as possible. The program is designed for patients with various cardiac and/or pulmonary problems. A staff of cardiologist, registered nurses, respiratory therapists, dietitians and counselors coordinate programs to meet your physical, emotional, spiritual,
and psychological needs. This combined cardiovascular exercise, monitoring, and education is provided in a fun, casual environment.
The program is provided three or four days a week with multiple times during the day to fit your schedule. An individual exercise plan is based on your personal goals and your own fitness level. During each exercise session you will wear a heart monitor that provides continuous EKG monitoring. Pulmonary rehab participants’ oxygen saturation will also be monitored. Classes consist of a warm up, cardiovascular exercise and a cool down period. The length of the program varies from six to 18 weeks.
Our Cardiac Rehab program is certified through the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR), which means the program is recognized for providing best practices and meeting the standards put forth in their published guidelines.
