Coffeyville Regional Medical Center offers a variety of services on an outpatient basis.
The Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation program at Coffeyville Regional Medical Center is designed to help individuals achieve an optimal level of physical, psychological, vocational and social health. Cardiac Rehabilitation Services are designed to help people with heart disease recover faster and return to full and productive lives. This is accomplished by the patient working closely with the Cardiac Rehab team.
An individual can get started on the road to recovery through individualized attention and compassionate care. A recovery map is created to meet each individuals needs.It may consist of any or all of the following segments:
Individuals who have these conditions are ideal candidates for the program:
Congestive heart failure (CHF), or heart failure, is a condition in which the heart can't pump enough blood to the body's other organs. The "failing" heart keeps working but not as efficiently as it should. People with heart failure can't exert themselves because they become short of breath and tired.
As blood flow out of the heart slows, blood returning to the heart through the veins backs up, causing congestion in the tissues. Often swelling (edema) results. Most often there's swelling in the legs and ankles, but it can happen in other parts of the body, too. Sometimes fluid collects in the lungs and interferes with breathing, causing shortness of breath, especially when a person is lying down.
At Coffeyville Regional Medical Center, a regimine that consists of various drugs, along with rest, proper diet, and modified daily activities is prescribed by your cardiologist. A registered dietitian can work with the CHF patient to improve diet, and an exercise program is often prescribed.
