Cardiopulmonary Rehab

MAKING YOUR CARDIAC COMEBACK

Heart disease impacts patients and their families, and prompts some of life’s biggest challenges and changes. Making a cardiac comeback after heart surgery and coping with chronic respiratory disease require individual determination backed by a supportive team. That’s why The Outer Banks Hospital now offers Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation.
 
Participating in cardiopulmonary rehab helps you to regain physical strength, cardiovascular capacity and pulmonary function. These are important outcomes from “Cardiac Rehab,” however, one of the most important outcomes is overcoming the fear that often lingers after a cardiac event. Many cardiac patients have concerns about returning to a life that includes all of the activities that they once enjoyed. Cardiac rehab helps patients achieve the confidence they need to return to a full, active and hopeful life.
 
Outer Banks Hospital Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation is located on the second floor of the Medical Office Building behind the hospital. Physician referral is required to participate in the state-licensed, Medicare-approved program.
