Cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation programs are designed to help people with cardiovascular conditions (e.g. heart attacks, coronary artery bypass graft surgery, etc.) and pulmonary conditions (e.g. chronic obstructive pulmonary disease – COPD, respiratory symptoms, etc.) recover faster and improve their quality of life. Both programs include exercise, education, counseling and support for patients and their families.
