Why Do I Need Cardiac Rehab?

    Research has shown that "cardiac death was 26% lower in rehabilitation patients who were exercise-trained compared with those who received 'usual care.' There were also 21% fewer nonfatal heart attacks, 13% fewer bypass surgeries and 19% fewer angioplasties in the exercise-trained people".


    "The specific benefits of the exercise training component are:  improved functional capacity for the patient, improved blood vessel function, improvement in cardiovascular risk factors, improved coronary blood flow, improved electrical stability of the heart muscle (thus reducing the risk of fatal heart rhythm disturbance), reduced risk of blood clots and reduced cardiac work and oxygen requirements."
