Cardiac Rehabilitation FAQ

What Are The 4 Phases Of Cardiac Rehabilitation?

The 4 phases of cardiac rehabilitation are:

Phase 1: Hospital – The aim of phase 1 is to stabilise your condition and help you leave hospital

Phase 2: Outpatient – The aim of phase 2 is to monitor your recovery and rebuild independence

Phase 3: Exercise & Education – The aim of phase 3 is to rebuild your stamina and start healthier habits

Phase 4: Maintenance – The aim of phase 4 is to continue your rehabilitation once discharged from NHS primary care

What is Phase 4 Cardiac Rehabilitation?

Phase 4 cardiac rehabilitation is the maintenance phase of cardiac rehabilitation.

It is designed to help individuals who have completed Phases 1-3 of NHS guided cardiac rehabilitation to maintain their progress and continue to live a heart-healthy lifestyle.

Phase 4 cardiac rehabilitation should include appropriate exercise sessions, ongoing education and support, risk factor management, psychological support, and regular monitoring and follow-up by a healthcare professional.

Is Walking Good For Cardiac Rehab?

Walking is an excellent form of exercise for cardiac rehabilitation as it offers lots of benefits for the heart and cardiovascular system.

Here are some reasons why walking is helpful for cardiac rehab:

  1. Walking increases the heart rate, which helps to improve cardiovascular function, strength and endurance.
  2. It is a low-impact exercise and that means it is easy on the joints, which means it is ideal for those with cardiac conditions as it allows them to exercise without stressing their bodies too much.
  3. Regular walking is known to lower blood pressure, which is a known risk factor for heart disease.
  4. Walking burns calories and can help achieve a healthy weight, reducing weight can lower the risk of heart disease.
  5. Walking lifts your mood and that helps to reduce stress and anxiety, this alone helps reduce the risk factors that cause heart disease.
  6. Walking has been shown to improve cholesterol levels by increasing HDL (good) cholesterol and reducing LDL (bad) cholesterol.
  7. Walking is an aerobic exercise and this improves circulation, improves sleep patterns, increases energy levels and improves mental health.
  8. Walking is also weight baring exercise which helps prevent osteoporosis, therefore keeping your bones strong.

In summary, walking is an excellent form of exercise for cardiac rehab because it is low impact, improves heart function, lowers blood pressure, improves cholesterol levels, helps with weight management, reduces stress and improves overall health.

Walking should form a part of a weekly exercise regime where going out for a walk happens on the days when you are not participating in a formal exercise session. This is because using walking as the only exercise you participate in is not going to provide good overall muscle health since it just uses the lower muscle groups.

Formal exercise is planned and structured exercise that includes both upper and lower-body resistance training as well as a higher-intensity cardiovascular workout than walking can provide. This is where participating in the variety of Cardiac Lauren videos complements going for a walk.

It is important to speak with a doctor before starting any exercise program, especially if you have a cardiac condition.

Yes, with Cardiac Lauren, you can do cardiac rehab at home, whenever it suits you. You don’t even need any special equipment. Lauren often uses every day household items in place of expensive weight sets, as you can see in this video.

At Cardiac Lauren, we offer a range of exercises designed to cater for people at all stages of rehabilitation. From seated exercises to high-intensity aerobics, we can help you progress back to your best health.

Here is a sample from one of our non-stop classes, showing some exercises for cardiac rehab.

What If There Are No Cardiac Rehab Classes Near Me?

A common complaint we hear is “there are no cardiac rehab classes near me!”

As a result, people are faced with the prospect of factoring in travel time to their exercise schedule. And nobody really wants to wait for a bus in the dark or have to arrive early to find a parking spot.

Thing is, if getting to classes is a chore, or the whole thing takes up hours of your day, you’ll end up getting demotivated and skipping your classes.

Cardiac Lauren solves this problem! Our online classes mean you can exercise from the comfort of home. No more wasting precious time travelling across town to a class.

You simply login, select your class and away you go!

When Should Cardiac Rehabilitation Start?

Cardiac rehabilitation should start the moment you are admitted to hospital, as the primary medical team begin to stabilise your condition and provide you the assistance and education you need to get mobile again.

The level of exercise and education increases through Phases 2 and 3, so that by the time you are discharged from primary NHS care, you have rebuilt your stamina and understand what you need to do prevent another heart event.

That’s where many patients feel at a loss.

You know what you need to do, but you don’t have an easy, structured programme laid out for you any more.

And finding a local exercise class that fits around you can be tough.

That’s where Cardiac Lauren comes in.

We make it super easy for you to get the exercise you need to stay heart-healthy at home, when it suits you.

You just login, pick the class style and duration you fancy, and away you go.

(Or if you struggle to choose, just do both of the classes we release every week!)

You also get information on subjects such as relaxation & stretching techniques, nutrition advice, the latest medical research.

And a WhatsApp group where you can ask questions, chat to fellow members, and keep your motivation strong.

In short, it’s the easiest, most convenient way to ensure you stay heart-healthy and avoid another heart event.
