Cardiac Rehabilitation

BSA Cardiac Rehab logo

BSA Cardiac Rehab is a 12-week, EKG-monitored, nurse-supervised program designed for patients who have had heart attacks or cardiac procedures. After undergoing an initial assessment, patients will receive an individualized treatment plan administered by Registered Nurses with cardiovascular expertise. All nurses in the program are certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support.

A big part of Cardiac Rehab is exercising under monitored and controlled conditions so patients can improve their cardiovascular fitness while staying within safe exercise levels. Education is the other major component of Cardiac Rehab.

Some of the areas patients learn about during rehab are:

  • Stress management
  • Anatomy/electrical system of the heart
  • Coping with family and career issues
  • Maintaining a heart-healthy lifestyle
  • Issues related to diabetes in cardiac patients

BSA Cardiac Rehab, located in the BSA Outpatient Therapy building at 5111 Canyon Drive is accredited by the American Academy of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR).
