National Cardiac Rehabilitation Week at LCMH

  • February 10th through the 16th is National Cardiac Rehabilitation Week and at Lawrence County Memorial Hospital, they know returning to full activity after a heart attack or other heart problem isn’t easy.
  • Their Cardiac Rehab program is under the physician’s medical direction and offers medically supervised and EKG monitored exercise to ensure patient safety. This program also involves more than one phase for best results…
  • Phase I: Cardiac Rehab often begins in the hospital after a heart attack, angina, heart failure or a cardiac condition/disease which requires close monitoring. An evaluation of the patient’s cardiac status and exercise potential determines activities of daily living and educational goals.
  • Phase II: As you continue your recovery, it is important that you increase your activity level under careful supervision. The second phase of Cardiac Rehabilitation is a customized program based on your individual needs. It generally begins two to four weeks after discharge and consists of three exercise sessions per week.
