How many stages of cardiac rehabilitation?

Cardiorehabilitation consists of three phases (stages).

Phase I refers to work with patients inside the hospital during their hospitalization (including intensive care and resuscitation wards) and is aimed at reducing the length of a person’s stay in the hospital.

Phase II includes physical activity under the supervision of a physician and outpatient supervision for four months after discharge. Patients typically complete up to 36 sessions of a gradual exercise program.

After that, patients can move on to phase III, which is a long-term, unsupervised exercise program. Throughout the rehabilitation process, the individual is provided with counseling on nutrition, mental health, and smoking cessation. Also, the attending physician monitors the level of lipids and blood pressure in the patient.
