Phase one begins the moment you are admitted to hospital. During this phase you will receive information about managing cardiovascular disease, diet and exercise. You and your family will receive support, education and information about cardiac problems and risk factors.
Typically, within the month following your heart event or surgery, you will commence phase two. It occurs once discharged from hospital. This phase involves travelling from home to our cardiac rehabilitation unit. It comprises three key components:
