Cardiovascular rehabilitation

The Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at Baylor Scott & White – Waxahachie has received national certification from the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). This certification means that our program has met high quality standards put in place by the AACVPR for providing cardiac rehabilitation services for our patients.

Have you been recently diagnosed with a heart problem? Have you just experienced a heart attack, angioplasty or bypass surgery? Are you and your family wondering about the next step in your recovery? Baylor can provide you with an answer. By participating in cardiac rehabilitation, you can start yourself on the road to recovery.

Cardiac rehabilitation's main goal is to assist you in developing a healthy lifestyle plan. Your plan will include major components of physical activity, education, stress management and nutrition counseling.

Monitored physical activity allows you to increase the efficiency of your heart and lungs, strengthen your body's muscles, and at the same time, help you gain the confidence you need to return to the daily activities you most enjoy. Activity sessions are designed to meet your personal needs, interests and abilities.

Based upon each individual's personal goals, the benefits received from cardiac rehabilitation may vary. Your benefits may include:

  • - Strengthening and conditioning of your heart and lungs
  • - Controlling your weight and lowering your total cholesterol levels
  • - Understanding your medications, the signs and symptoms of heart disease and when to seek medical attention
  • - Increase your self-confidence
  • - Laying the groundwork for the development of a healthier lifestyle
  • - Reducing your symptoms and chances of experiencing another cardiac event
  • - An earlier return to work and daily activities
  • - Developing coping and stress reduction skills, as well as relaxation techniques
  • - Providing emotional support for you and your family

Our program is carefully designed to accommodate the individual needs of every cardiac patient. Participants typically spend three to 12 weeks in cardiac rehabilitation, attending three sessions per week. The length of your program may depend upon your goals, the progress of your recovery or your physician's recommendation.

During the activity sessions, the cardiac rehabilitation program team will monitor you with an electrocardiograph (ECG) telemetry unit that will keep them informed of how you and your heart are reacting and adapting to activity. You'll also learn how to take your pulse, determine your exercise intensity and exercise at a level that allows you to receive maximum benefits.
