HealthAdvance offers two separate components of cardiovascular disease management:

Cardiac Rehabilitation

With a physician referral you are eligible for this component (cardiac rehab) if, in the preceding 12 months, you have had:

  • heart attack (acute myocardial infarction)
  • coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)
  • chronic angina
  • heart valve repair or replacement
  • PTCA or coronary stenting
  • heart or lung transplant

Cardiac Rehabilitation is a physician supervised, nurse monitored program that meets 3 times per week for 8-12 weeks depending on diagnosis and participant's eligibility. Individual exercise prescriptions are determined based on participant's ability and condition.

Specially trained nurses monitor the participant's heart rhythm, heart rate and blood pressure during exercise therapy. In addition to exercise, participants are provided with individualized education sessions aimed at heart disease risk factor modification. The focus of this program is on preventing complications related to heart disease.
