Bio: I am a clinical exercise physiologist who has worked with cardiac patients for 20 years. I live in Traverse City, MIchigan. My background includes working with state and national committees to help in the delivery of cardiac rehabilitation to those who need it. Many patients however do get followup cardiac rehabilitation post a heart event. Research shows as few as 30% of eligible patients attend outpatient cardiac rehabilitation. If you are one of these who can't attend but would like to take of your heart following a heart attack, open heart surgery, angioplasty or stent I hope to help you get started with the information that is necessary for you or your family to make a healthy recovery.
