Health Tip: Will Cardiac Rehab Help?

(HealthDay News) -- If you've recently had a heart attack, coronary bypass, heart failure or heart transplant, your doctor may have recommended cardiac rehabilitation.

The American Council on Exercise mentions these potential benefits of a cardiac rehab program:

  • Fewer cardiac symptoms.
  • Improved cardiac function and fitness.
  • Improved blood lipid levels.
  • Less depression and anxiety.
  • Reduced risk of re-hospitalization.
  • Support from peers.
