The Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Program provides monitored, supervised exercise and risk reduction programs to patients who have cardiac and pulmonary medical conditions. Objectives for cardiac patients include: risk reduction for coronary artery disease including stress management, dietary counseling, exercise instruction and medication review. Objectives for patients with chronic lung disease include improved exercise capacity through overall conditioning, decreased hospitalizations due to improved knowledge of pulmonary hygiene, signs and symptoms of infections and proper medication use.
