Cardiac Rehabilitation in Mauston
You Can Have a Happier, Healthier Heart!
Cardiac rehabilitation provides monitored exercise, education and support
to individuals with heart failure, as well as to those who have experiences
a heart attack, heart surgery and/or other cardiac procedures. Staff members
work closely with primary care providers and cardiac specialists to meet
the needs of each individual.
What to Expect
Cardiac rehabilitation participants generally meet three times a week for
up to 36 sessions. During that time, they benefit from individual assessment
and cardiac monitoring at each session. There is ongoing communication
between all members of the team - both routinely and when concerns arise
- to assure that patients are on their way to recovery.
The cardiac rehabilitation team provides counseling, education, and support
to participants and their loved ones, as they make lifestyle changes to
modify their risk factors for heart disease. This may include assistance with:
- Managing stress
- Getting blood pressure under control
- Losing weight
- Quitting smoking
- Controlling diabetes
- Starting an exercise program
- Making informed nutrition choices
