Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation is essential post a heart health incident like a heart attack, CABG heart surgery, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, heart failure or angioplasty
Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation is a multifaceted program that makes breathing easier by strengthening the heart as well as ensuring adequate muscle strength for performing daily tasks with ease.
Shortness of breath experienced post a heart health issue or with COPD becomes a barrier for performing adequate exercise. Lack of exercise, in turn, has harmful effects on health.
Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation helps by:
- Building heart health as well as overall physical strength
- Reducing stress levels
- Improving mood
- Increasing your energy levels to perform daily tasks with ease
- Creating space for daily physical activity in your routine
- Inducing habits like daily medication adherence
- Reducing your risk of future heart health incidents.
Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation can go a long way in improving your quality of life as well as reducing your chances of a repeated hearth health problem, significantly.
