What are the benefits of Cardiac Rehab? 

Those who participate in Cardiac Rehab live longer and lessen their chances of suffering another heart attack, control their heart attack symptoms such as chest pain or shortness of breath, stop or reverse damage to the blood vessels of their heart, lessen the physical and emotional effects of heart disease, improve their confidence and well-being, and improve their stamina and strength which allows them to return to their usual daily activities faster. 

What are the benefits of Pulmonary Rehab? 

Those who participate in Pulmonary Rehab improve their quality of life by reducing the symptoms of their lung disease, improving their physical functioning, increasing their ability to exercise, and better managing anxiety and depression – helping them to live each day to their very fullest!

Citizens Memorial Hospital offers pulmonary rehabilitation for individuals healing from long-term effects of COVID, also called long COVID-19 or long-haul COVID-19. Due to the nature of the virus, many patients experience difficulty breathing, even after the virus has left the body. Patients that require ventilators are at an even higher risk of long-term effects. Post COVID-19 symptoms are conditions that persist for more than four weeks after diagnosis. Individuals may experience symptoms for weeks and even months following a COVID-19 diagnosis.
