Cardiac Rehab Can Help You Return to a Productive Lifestyle
At Los Robles Regional Medical Center, our goal is to reduce the impact of cardiovascular disease within the communities we serve. Our cardiac rehabilitation program is designed to assist cardiac patients in their return to a productive lifestyle following a heart attack or surgery. Los Robles’ cardiac rehab program is carefully structured to meet each patient’s fitness level and accommodate his or her capabilities and limitations.
To find out more information about our cardiac rehabilitation program and to schedule an appointment with a cardiac specialist, please call our East Campus Facility at (805) 370-4006.
Our specialized team consists of a board-certified cardiologist, registered nurses specializing in cardiac care and a dietician. The team works to ensure that regular follow up information is sent to your personal physician.
There are 3 phases in our Cardiac Rehabilitation Program:
Phase I: Inpatient
The inpatient cardiac rehabilitation program begins when the patient is still in the hospital. As an inpatient, you will receive individualized education and counseling related to your diagnosis.
Phase II: Outpatient
The outpatient cardiac rehabilitation program begins when the patient's physician authorizes exercise to continue. As an outpatient, you will participate in a monitored exercise program that is designed for your individual needs. The 12-week program consists of one-hour sessions, three times a week.
Phase III: Maintenance
Upon completion of phase II, participants are challenged to utilize the knowledge and confidence they have gained to join our non-monitored program. Through this program, our cardiac rehabilitation team remains available to all graduates, offering information, guidance and on-going support. This includes periodic follow-up sessions to assess progress with exercise and dietary programs.
Cardiac Rehabilitation Information Series
In order to help you keep up with the latest information in heart health we have developed an Information Series that focuses on the management of heart disease, including risk factor modification. We encourage all Cardiac Rehabilitation patients and their families to attend. Classes are held once a week at our East Campus Facility.
