In addition to our comprehensive cardiac care offered in all of our branches, we offer a specialized cardiopulmonary program in some locations.
What Is Our Cardiopulmonary Program?
In addition to the cardiac services offered in each of our locations across the country, our cardiopulmonary program places additional focus on the management of symptoms for heart and lung-related conditions, such as:
- Heart failure
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
- Cardiac bypass surgery
- Heart attack
How Does It Work?
Our skilled nurses and therapists are experts in cardiopulmonary management. Care begins with a check on the status of your current health condition, your home environment and your understanding of your condition. They offer solutions and tools that fit your lifestyle, including a journal to chart day-to-day progress; how to make changes to your home environment; an exercise plan to build strength and increase ease of movement; and in-home monitoring by nursing professionals and telemonitoring devices.
