Lifestyle changes help heart attack patients
Simple lifestyle changes can help people who have had a
heart attack get their cardiovascular system into shape.
"Moderate exercise and proper nutrition strengthen the heart
and improve overall fitness too," said Dr. Ryan Neal,
director of cardiac rehabilitation at Baylor College of
Medicine and The Methodist Hospital in Houston.
A 12-week cardiac rehabilitation program might include
aerobic exercise, muscle toning, nutritional instruction,
counseling and medical monitoring, with patients exercising
three times a week on treadmills, stationary bikes and
rowing machines. Each patient should be prescribed a unique
rehabilitation program based on the patient's level of
Teaching patients how to manage their heart condition and
prevent recurring heart attacks and coronary-artery disease
is a critical part of rehabilitation.
"Our ultimate goal is to help patients develop a
home-exercise program and lifestyle modification, including
stress management," Neal said. "In many cases, they can
return to or surpass their prior level of activity."
Neal said patients in good cardiovascular health feel and
look better and have a greater sense of well-being. "They
realize that heart disease doesn't have to limit their
potential and that exercise is a stepping stone to improving
their quality of life."
