At North Alabama Medical Center – ECM, the Cardiac Rehab team facilitates four classes a day, three days a week, for patients who have recently undergone open heart surgery, had a valve replacement or received stents.
Most patients are on a 12-week program. Aside from the exercise treatment program, patients also hear from a nutritionist about healthy eating and reading labels.
Staff say the progress patients make after just 36 sessions is tremendous!
We are grateful for the NAMC-ECM cardiac rehab team and their patients, who are making positive changes, one beat at a time.
