If you have been diagnosed with heart disease or have suffered a cardiac event such as a heart attack, your physician may refer you to a cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program. Why? Because cardiac rehab allows you to exercise safely and learn how to live a heart-healthy lifestyle. The program includes monitoring by healthcare professionals to ensure your heart rate stays in a safe range.
