Shore Medical Center's certified cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program provides a monitored, medically supervised program to meet the needs of the cardiovascular and pulmonary patient. The highly trained multidisciplinary staff including a registered nurse and exercise physiologists create customized programs to meet the physical, psychological and nutritional needs of patients diagnosed with cardiovascular or pulmonary disease.
The primary goals for each patient are to regain strength, confidence, to improve their quality of life and reduce risk factors. Another goal is to prevent the progression of the disease.
Aside from the physical elements of the program, emphasis is also placed on the nutritional and psychological components of rehabilitation. A patient's mental outlook may have suffered as a result of trauma. Counseling on modifying risk factors during exercise sessions will help restore confidence and overcome fear of further illness. Patients given nutritional guidance as well, tips on how to reduce your fat intake and cut down on calories are provided during the course of the program.

The average patient regimen calls for 60 to 90 minutes of supervised exercise three times per week for 10 to 12 weeks. Once you’re showing progress, you’ll be encouraged to move on and work out independently. Our staff will even make arrangements with local health clubs to ensure you have a place to train on your own once you’ve completed our program.
