The Wockhardt Hospitals Cardiac Rehabilitation Centre

Thursday, February 26, 2009

At Wockhardt Hospitals we believe that a heart ailment is not cured until the patient walks out feeling as good as new.Which is why our 360 degree heart care is a combination of state of art surgery and world class port operative facilities. From Cardio workouts to monitoring we help you to get back on your feet as soon as possible. Because we don’t just perform surgeries, we put people back in their lives.

The Wockhardt Cardiac Rehabilitation center is exclusively meant for post operative care to heart patients. We believe in exercise programs that are tailor made to suit the patients’ medical conditions. You are requested to contact doctors at wockhardt or your GP before beginning any exercise program.

Poor breathing robs energy and negatively affects mental alertness. Unless breathing is exercised, aging affects the respiratory system as follows:

Stiffness: The rib cage and surrounding muscles get stiff causing inhalation to become difficult.

Less elasticity and weak muscles leave stale air in the tissues of the lungs and prevents fresh oxygen from reaching the blood stream.

Rapid, Shallow Breathing: This type of breathing, often caused by poor posture and weak or stiff muscles, leads to poor oxygen supply, respiratory disease, sluggishness, or heart disease.

The following exercises are simple ways to deepen breathing and to cleanse the lungs. These exercises will also increase energy and decrease tension.

Lie flat on your back on a reclined bed and get a proper sense of deep breathing. (You can use pillows ) You also need to support the site of surgery with a cushion. The natural course of breathing in that position will create a slight rise in the stomach upon inhaling and a slight fall upon exhaling.)
