Cardiac Rehabilitation

Phase I Cardiac Rehabilitation

Phase I cardiac rehabilitation takes place within the hospital setting, once prescribed by the patient's physician. A physical therapist will start a light individualized exercise program with the patient. This may include, but is not limited to, simple activities such as getting out of bed, marching in place, and walking in the hospital halls.

The physical therapist will monitor the patient's heart rate, blood pressure, and exertion level with the exercise. With each visit, the goal is to increase exercise tolerance. Education also plays a role in phase I cardiac rehabilitation. The therapist may educate the patient on ways to modify cardiac risk factors and disease processes.
