About Cardiovascular Rehabilitation

What is cardiovascular rehabilitation?

Cardiovascular rehabilitation is a medically monitored exercise program tailored to a patient’s specific needs. This program of exercise, education and diet can dramatically improve your health and the quality of your life.

The University of Toledo Medical Center’s (UTMC) cardiovascular rehabilitation staff will help you make lifestyle changes that can lead to a stronger and healthier heart.

Patients in UTMC’s cardiovascular rehabilitation program undergo therapy three times a week for 12 weeks. To ensure that your exercise program is safe and effective, you’ll perform a cardiopulmonary exercise (CPX) test at the beginning and the end of the program. This test assesses the ability of your heart, lungs, blood vessels and muscles to use oxygen efficiently.

What are the benefits of cardiovascular rehabilitation?

Cardiovascular rehabilitation helps you feel better and reduces your risk of future heart problems. Patients who participate in a cardiovascular rehabilitation program have a 50 percent lower risk of death and a 30 percent lower risk of a heart attack over four years, compared to patients who do not go through a cardiovascular rehabilitation program.

Who should go through a cardiovascular rehabilitation program?

Cardiovascular rehabilitation is recommended for a variety of heart-related procedures, surgeries and diagnoses:
