Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation

Virtua Cardiopulmonary Rehab - New Jersey

Strengthening Your Heart after Leaving the Hospital

If you’ve had a heart attack or are dealing with heart disease, heart failure, peripheral artery disease (PAD), or stable angina, you may be eligible for cardiopulmonary rehabilitation. Cardiopulmonary rehab also may be a helpful option if you’re recovering from heart bypass surgery, angioplasty, stent implantation, heart transplant, or valve surgery. Talk with your cardiologist to see if you’re a candidate and to get a prescription for services.

Regain Independence

Our comprehensive cardiopulmonary rehab helps you increase your mobility, resume your normal activities, and prevent future cardiac events through carefully monitored exercise and education. Programs are customized for each person and paced according to your condition and capabilities. Family members are encouraged to attend the educational offerings to gain an understanding of their loved one’s safe range of activity, recommended goals, and need for follow-up care. 

Are You a Candidate?

If you have any of the following conditions and/or procedures, you are likely eligible for cardiopulmonary rehabilitation.

  • Heart attack
  • Stable angina
  • Congestive heart failure with low ejection fraction
  • Coronary artery bypass graft
  • Heart valve repair or replacement
  • Angioplasty (“balloon” procedure)
  • Cardiac stents
