If you have experienced a heart attack, heart surgery, or have congestive heart failure (CHF), Cardiac Rehab at Emerson is here to improve your heart’s future. Emerson uses a team approach to tackle some of the challenges that patients with cardiac issues face. Our rehabilitation team will focus on exercise and activity to get your heart pumping and your entire cardiovascular system working. Our nurse managers and our dietary team will assist with education to help reduce risk factors and promote healthy eating and good nutrition — according to the American Heart Association, heart-healthy living is a key component of Cardiac Rehab.
Stress is often a factor that goes unnoticed and untreated when dealing with cardiac disorders. At Emerson, our social work team works closely with our patients and families on counseling efforts designed to help reduce stress, as well as how to better cope with everyday stressors. Our cardiac protocols are overseen by a credentialed cardiology team that works hand-in-hand with our primary care physicians, as well as our nursing team to ensure the best possible outcomes.
