    Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation

Your heart is a muscle that demands the same attention as any other muscle in your body-take care of it, and it will take care of you. Galesburg Cottage Hospital's cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program is dedicated to helping patients with a history of cardiac and pulmonary issues get the information, motivation, encouragement and guidance they need to help their hearts-and lifestyles-be healthier. 

Galesburg Cottage Hospital's Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation program offers a wide range of services close to home. If you've had a recent valve repair or replacement, heart transplant, stenting, angioplasty, open heart surgery, heart attack, angina, or congestive heart failure, our cardiopulmonary rehabilitation specialists will work with you to develop a program that works for you. 

Our cardiac rehabilitation professionals (including a medical doctor, registered nurses, respiratory therapists and registered dieticians) provide customized care for all our cardiac patients in all phases of recovery. 

Program goals include:

  • Preventing negative physical and psychological effects of inactivity
  • Incorporating cardiovascular fitness in a patient's lifestyle
  • Reducing risk factors for coronary disease
  • Getting the patient back to a normal or near-normal lifestyle and optimal activity

The cardiac rehabilitation staff educates participants on heart-related topics, such as:

  • Guidelines for home activities
  • Heart attack warning signs
  • Stroke warning signss
  • Heart disease basics
  • Healthy nutrition
  • Risk factor reduction
  • Safety precautions with activity

Participation in Galesburg Cottage Hospital's cardiac rehabilitation program requires an order from the admitting or consulting doctor.
