What is cardiac rehabilitation?
You will usually be referred for cardiac rehabilitation following a heart attack, cardiac surgery or stenting by your Cardiologist or GP. You will be seen by a Specialist Nurse and given information on what to do and not to do following your heart event. This information includes advice on diet, medication, exercise and risk factor management. You can be seen at home or in clinic in the Cardiology dept. You will also be invited to take part in an exercise programme.
