Cardiac & Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Overview

Oaklawn’s Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation programs offer a progressive education and exercise program for patients who have had heart attack, transplant, coronary stenting, or who suffer from chronic lung disease such as COPD, emphysema, asthma and chronic bronchitis.

While cardiac rehabilitation focuses on recovering heart patients and pulmonary rehabilitation focuses on helping you manage your lung disease; both are offered in an outpatient environment, supervised by our team, and designed to increase your confidence and quality of life through education, goal setting, strength and endurance conditioning.

How it works

Oaklawn offers two levels of cardiopulmonary rehabilitation:

Phase II is a 3-18 week outpatient program focused on educating you about your condition and placing you on a monitored exercise routine. Your supervised exercise program will help you increase your heart and lung efficiency, muscular strength, and stamina.

Phase III is a self-pay supervised exercise program designed to maintain the cardiovascular conditioning attaned in Phase II. Our staff will monitor your blood pressure and heart rate while providing encouragement to continue to build strength and endurance.

Start by scheduling your initial visit and orientation. At this visit we will obtain a medical history and baseline assessment, set personal goals and tour the facility.
