Cardiac Rehab

You may be one of hundreds of people in the North County area, including Carlsbad, Oceanside and Encinitas, who are recovering from a heart attack, coronary artery bypass surgery, suffering from angina, or have been diagnosed with heart failure, or simply afraid to exercise in an unsupervised area.  If so, you may be questioning whether a rewarding lifestyle is possible under such conditions.  The answer is yes!  The Cardiac Wellness Center at Tri-City Medical Center can help you return to a productive and active life.

Since 1984, Tri-City Medical center has offered a Cardiac Rehabilitation program for patients recovering from open heart surgery, heart attack or interventional cardiac procedures.  The 12-week program includes educational classes on risk factor modification, nutrition m stress management as well as supervised, monitored exercise.  Our program is designed to help patients and their families better understand coronary artery disease and provide invaluable emotional, psychological and physical support.

Our multidisciplinary team of health professionals is dedicated to improving the quality of your life. We are prepared to address concerns about your activity level, diet, medications and lifestyle changes.

A Candidate for Success

The Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at the Wellness Center is designed primarily for individuals with known coronary artery disease who need or desire to improve their physical fitness

If you fall into one of these categories your insurance may cover your cardiac rehabilitation program:

  • Recent heart attack
  • Recent coronary  artery bypass surgery , angioplasty or stenting
  • Newly diagnosed  stable angina
  • Other types of heart  disease such as valvular heart disease or cardiomyopathy

Our center offers up to a three-month medically supervised, monitored exercise program in conjunction with nutritional counseling and health education classes.  These sessions meet three times per week. As a participant you will benefit from the teamwork and clinical exercise physiologist, a psychologist and registered dietician.

Our Complete Approach

Program participants are monitored with state-of-the art telemetry equipment and instructed in the use of fitness equipment including stationary upright and recumbent bicycles, recumbent steppers, elliptical cross trainers, treadmills and rowing machines.  In addition, group strength training classes are offered up to three times daily.  Weekly health risk management education classes are held to assist individuals to develop and maintain healthy lifestyles habits. These are taught by physicians, psychologists, registered nurses, exercise physiologists and dieticians.

The best news is – when you have finished with our program you may continue your journey toward health and fitness by remaining in our Maintenance Exercise Program. This Maintenance Program is open to anyone with a physician referral.
