Cardiac and Vascular Rehabilitation
For many people, maintaining good heart and vascular health requires more than just living a healthy lifestyle. In fact, thousands of Americans require some form of surgical or non-surgical cardiac treatment each year. If you’re one of them, thinking about how to care for your heart and vascular system after your procedure is just as important as the procedure itself.
  • Cardiac rehabilitation is made up of a series of personalized, prescriptive activities related to critical functions of heart health, such as exercise, education, dieting and lifestyle modification. The goal is to help you restore and maintain optimal health while helping to reduce the risk of future heart problems.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, and 90 percent of women have one or more risk factors for a stroke or heart disease.

You might think you know what a heart attack looks like, but heart attacks don’t always stick to the script as they’re depicted in movies and television. Time is imperative when it comes to a heart attack. So knowing the classic symptoms of a heart attack, as well as less common symptoms, can help lessen damage and potentially save your life.

Classic heart attack symptoms include:

  • Chest discomfort or pain in the upper chest
  • Pressure in the chest. Many people describe it as something “sitting” on their chest.
  • Pain in the left arm or sometimes up the right arm
  • Pain between the shoulder blades
  • Unexplained sweating
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness.

It’s important to know that symptoms of a heart attack can be very different in men versus women. Learn more about the symptoms women experience most, so you can be prepared.

If you’re experiencing signs and symptoms of a heart attack, call 911 immediately.
