The Lifestyle and Cardio-Pulmonary Rehabilitation centre offers comprehensive, medically supervised programs designed to teach people how to exercise safely and manage risk factors of heart disease, stroke, lung diseases and other lifestyle related disorders.
Rehabilitation does not essentially exercise training only; it also encompasses some teaching, both in diet and healthy lifestyle. It's shown to be of benefit for people that have had heart attacks that have had stents or angioplasty for chest pain, those that have had cardiac surgery. It really helps to decrease readmissions and improve quality of life and, most importantly, decrease mortality. When they are discharged from the hospital, they are given a referral for this. Unfortunately, rehabilitation does not happen as often as it should, probably less than 50% of the people who would benefit from it actually attend cardiac rehab. Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences, is the only hospital in states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh to have a dedicated team of experts running a successful Lifestyle and Cardio-Pulmonary Rehabilitation Centre.
