Cardiac rehabilitation, also known as cardiac revalidation, is a program of care and exercise specially designed to help people with heart disease regain their health, vitality and quality of life. Following a cardiac event such as a heart attack, angioplasty or heart surgery, cardiac rehabilitation plays a crucial role in the healing and recovery process.
The importance of cardiac revalidation lies in its ability to offer patients comprehensive and progressive support to restore their physical condition, reduce the risk of future complications and return to their daily activities with confidence. The program combines supervised exercise sessions, nutritional advice, education about heart disease and the lifestyle changes needed to promote long-term heart health.
This cardiac revalidation service is aimed at a wide range of people, including those who have recently suffered cardiac events, coronary interventions or heart surgery. It is also beneficial for people with high cardiovascular risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes and obesity. In addition, cardiac revalidation is suitable for patients of different age groups and fitness levels.
The benefits are many and significant. Firstly, the program is supervised by an experienced team of revalidation specialists, guaranteeing the safety and effectiveness of the exercises and care provided. Exercise sessions are tailored to each patient’s individual needs, ensuring proper progression while avoiding unnecessary risks.
What’s more, the CMC328 offers an exceptionally supportive environment. Patients are surrounded by people who share similar experiences, creating a support network essential to the healing process. Educational sessions help patients understand their condition, adopt healthy eating habits and integrate positive lifestyle changes, such as smoking cessation and stress management.
Cardiac revalidation is not just about physical recovery, but also has a positive impact on mental and emotional health. By regaining confidence in their bodies and learning to manage the stress associated with heart disease, patients can reduce anxiety and regain a better overall quality of life.
Cardiac revalidationis an essential service for people with heart disease, offering a pathway to health, vitality and confidence. At CMC328, we propose an active and optimized revalidation based on an effort test (based on recent Evidence Base Practice studies). The aim is not only to reintegrate patients into society and the workplace, but above all to improve their quality of life and independence. In the same vein, we also hope to prevent the risk of cardiovascular recurrence.
