Making Heart Health a Priority
Heart health is about more than just your heart. Blood pressure, cholesterol, family history and other factors all play important roles in keeping your heart strong. If you have questions about your heart health but aren’t quite sure where to begin, start with a heart health assessment and learn more about any risks you may have for heart-related conditions. Your journey to a stronger heart starts here.
Meadowview Regional's Heart Care Program
Serious cardiac problems used to mean traveling an hour or more for care. Not anymore. Now Meadowview Regional Medical Center can provide Maysville and the surrounding counties with the same kind of cardiac care that used to be available only in the bigger cities.
That's great news because in a cardiac emergency, every second counts.
Cardiac Rehabilitation is a physician supervised, nurse monitored program that meets 3 times per week for 8-12 weeks depending on diagnosis and participant's eligibility. Individual exercise prescriptions are determined based on participant's ability and condition.
Specially trained nurses monitor the participant's heart rhythm, heart rate and blood pressure during exercise therapy. In addition to exercise, participants are provided with individualized education sessions aimed at heart disease risk factor modification. The focus of this program is on preventing complications related to heart disease.
With a physician referral you are eligible for cardiac rehab if, in the preceding 12 months, you have had:
- heart attack (acute myocardial infarction)
- coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)
- chronic angina
- heart valve repair or replacement
- PTCA or coronary stenting
- heart or lung transplant
Heart care in our region just got much stronger.
