Working with our team of registered respiratory therapists (RRTs), physical therapists, and a medical director, Lifeline patients progress through a customized exercise program that involves telemetry-monitored aerobic exercise, resistance training, stretching, and practicing functional tasks. Consultations with a dietitian and social worker are available – as needed.
Our patients make remarkable strides in restoring their health and protecting their futures. Most experience lowered blood pressure and reduced cholesterol, increased endurance, greater physical strength, decreased depression, and an enhanced feeling of wellness. Best of all, by being well-educated by our staff, and maximizing their heart function and improving their health, our patients are better able to get back to their daily lives, stay active, and even participate in sports.
Our maintenance/follow up programs provide support so our patients can continue to progress after reaching their initial goals.
