Cardiac Rehabilitation Goals and Benefits

Getting the Most Out of Cardiac Rehab

Heart disease research studies show that controlling your risk factors for heart disease can help you lead a healthier life. So make sure your planned cardiac rehabilitation goals and benefits work for you by doing the following:
 
  • Plan. Work with your healthcare team to design or change your program to meet your needs.
  • Communicate. Report any changes in your feelings or symptoms to the cardiac rehab team, no matter how small.
  • Ask questions. If you don't understand the answers, keep asking until you do.
  • Take charge of your recovery. No one else can do it for you. Your new lifestyle is healthy for your heart, so stick with it -- for life.
     
To gain more control over your cardiac rehab, remember your goals and keep important information where you can find it. You may want to have a special calendar just for your rehab activities or keep a notebook.
