Phelps’ Cardiac Rehab Program Receives Certification
Phelps Cardiovascular Services has received certification for its cardiac rehabilitation program from the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). AACVPR-certified programs are recognized as leaders in the field of cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation because they offer the most advanced practices available. Certification is valid for three years.
Cardiovascular rehabilitation programs are designed to help people with cardiac disease improve their cardiovascular health and their quality of life. The programs include medically supervised exercise, education, counseling and support for patients and their families, with the goal of maximizing a patient’s aerobic capacity through regular exercise.
This is the fourth program certification achieved by Phelps Cardiovascular Services in the past year. The other three were for peripheral arterial testing, peripheral venous testing and extracranial cerebrovascular studies (carotid artery studies).
