McCurtain Memorial Hospital’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program provides participants and families with an important resource in the battle of cardiovascular disease.
The purpose of Cardiac Rehabilitation or “Cardiac Conditioning” is to provide progressive exercise and education with supervision to the participant with cardiovascular disease. We want to enable and equip the participant and his/her family to make wise decisions concerning their future health. Working with your physicians, the program can help with weight loss, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes and smoking.
The program is geared toward gradually increasing the participants duration and intensity of exercise.
Individuals who have had a heart attack or myocardial infarction, or stable angina pectoris are candidates for cardiac rehabilitation, as are persons who have undergone coronary artery bypass grafts.
