The Cardiopulmonary Rehab Program at the Mercy Hospital in Ardmore, OK gives patients the opportunity to participate in their own recovery toward a healthy, more active lifestyle. The program is for those who have chronic respiratory issues and/or coronary artery disease.

Cardiopulmoanry Rehab has three phases – the first while you are hospitalized, the second as an outpatient and the third as an ongoing program to maintain your health.

We offer a unique, patient-centered cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program that takes a personalized approach to patient recovery through a focus on three key areas: exercise, education and encouragement.

Our heart care services include:

  • Individualized exercise programs
  • Closely monitored exercise sessions
  • Support groups and classes
  • Individual consultations
  • Group seminars that focus on management of heart disease, diet changes, risk factors (e.g., cholesterol, stress, smoking, high blood pressure) and exercise

Cardiac Rehab Phases

  • Phase I begins while you are in the hospital with low-level exercise and education about what activity you can do safely. This might include getting up and walking around your room or down the hallway with your physical therapist.

  • Phase II lasts for 12 weeks and begins four weeks after you return home. Your doctor will refer you to this outpatient program and stay in touch with your rehab team for updates on your progress. Your health insurance usually covers this phase of cardiopulmonary rehab.

  • Phase III is an ongoing, supervised exercise program in the cardiopulmonary gym. You’ll receive supervision but won’t be monitored as closely. You can participate in the gym, or a home exercise program can be designed for you. You’ll pay for this program as you would for a regular exercise program in a gym.

Qualified rehabilitation professionals will closely supervise your progress and send regular reports to your doctor. We’ll also watch for any complications that might need medical treatment. Our team consists of registered nurses, exercise physiologists and respiratory therapists.
