Virtual Rehab Benefits Cardiac Patients: Physical, Financial, and Emotional Health Improvements

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, and many cardiac patients require rehabilitation after a heart attack or other cardiac event. Now, new research shows that virtual rehab provides numerous benefits to cardiac patients, including improved physical health, less financial strain, and stronger emotional health.

Importance of Cardiac Rehabilitation

We all know that a healthy heart is the key to living life fully and avoiding future complications from cardiovascular disease. But rehab remains underutilized even when it can be so beneficial! The small number of women or minorities in cardiac rehabilitation is especially concerning since they have lower general wellness and higher cardiac death rates, according to data.


Cardiac rehabilitation helps you maintain your well-being by slowing down progression if not reversing course entirely. As mentioned before, rehab has tangible benefits, which include lessened risk. What does this mean for you?


Benefits of Cardiac Rehab for Patients

  1. It means that by following simple steps, your risk of dying from any heart-related cause is reduced by 25%.

  2. With the help of rehab, you can do everything better. You'll have an enhanced ability to perform daily living activities and reduce symptoms like angina or fatigue in your life!

  3. Exercise and program adherence can reduce your risk of mortality by up to 5 years.

With the Proven Benefits, What's Stopping Patients?

Cardiac rehabilitation is a chance to not just heal your heart, but also save your life. So, why aren't more doctors recommending rehab to their patients?

  1. Doctors are so busy that they cannot keep up with innovative technology and treatments.

  2. When patients can't afford adequate insurance, the options doctors can recommend are limited.

  3. Often doctors cannot find suitable cardiac rehab programs in the area that meet specific patient needs.
