of the reasons that you had a cardiac event and also optimise your physical performance
after this life changing event.
The courses start with a preliminary assessment which includes a short exercise test and
consultation on your risk factors of heart disease.
You then offered the opportunity to work with a group or individually. From the exercise
test we will be able to start the exercise training at a level that suits you and allow
progression over the eight week programme.
At each session you will be supervised by a specialist cardiac physiotherapist and your
symptoms will be monitored accordingly. Blood pressure and heart rate are monitored
during each session.
We will correspond directly with your cardiologist and GP as you progress and inform them of any
changes over the duration of the programme.
