Cardiac rehabilitation specialists


A cardiac rehabilitation specialist helps heart attack survivors improve their heart health. They make individual plans for each person to follow in a three-month program. A cardiac rehabilitation specialist will give you exercises to do slowly and then increase your exertion over time.

Why do you need to see them?

Cardiac rehabilitation has been shown to be beneficial for people who have had cardiovascular issues such as heart attacks or heart surgery. It can help with recovery and lower the risk of having another cardiac event or needing surgery again. If you have had chronic angina, heart failure, peripheral vascular disease, or valve and/or coronary artery disease, your doctor may recommend that you participate in cardiac rehabilitation.

What do they do?

Cardiac rehabilitation specialists are in the business of helping people heal their broken hearts- no, not literally. They provide a service that helps people improve their cardiovascular health through a supervised and individualized program that includes education and exercise.

They believe in the power of lifestyle changes to boost heart health and they are always eager to give out advice, like quitting smoking or eating healthier.

What else you should know?

Cardiac rehabilitation has been shown to be effective in reducing psychological problems such as depression, anger, and others that can follow a heart attack or surgery. Therefore, many cardiac programs have psychiatrists or social workers on staff to provide emotional support. A typical cardiac rehabilitation program lasts for around three months.

Physician consultation is a good opportunity and you should be prepared for it.

  • Carry all necessary medical records for the discussion. It helps in better understanding your heart condition and avoids repetition of diagnostic tests.
  • Make sure you discuss your past medical history, surgical history, family history, and medications that you are taking.
  • Discuss about your lifestyle habits, dietary habits and also about your profession. Your lifestyle and nature of job may be associated with the risk for cardiac diseases.
