Course Summary

Just as a serious limb injury requires rehabilitation to return to optimal performance, the heart also requires serious rehab in order to function at its best after a trauma. Additionally, when a cardiac event occurs, the patient may suffer emotional difficulties and challenges to accept and overcome events that caused the condition. Cardiac rehabilitation is a whole-body approach to restore health that incorporates a multi-dimensional methodology to address body, mind, and spirit. Exercise, counseling, and physical therapy combine with medical management to ensure that as much normal function as possible is restored, and that every patient is able to adapt to lifestyle changes that reduce the risk of a repeat occurrence. The cardiac rehabilitation team and program goals for various cardiac diagnoses and interventions are discussed in a two part series with helpful tables and references to support further studies and to implement knowledge in everyday practice.
