MONITORED EXERCISE PROGRAM FOR HEART PATIENTS
For individuals recovering from a
recent heart attack, heart surgery , or those with
angina, we continuously monitor their heart rate and
electrocardiogram while they follow their individualized
exercise prescription in a safe and supervised setting,
thrice in a week for 2 months. Patients are usually
given exercise sessions on tread-mill machines and
We also provide a long term maintenance
program for our exercise graduates, or anyone with
heart problems. Exercise sessions are available daily.
UNO EDUCATION PROGRAM :-
CARDIO UNO educational programs answer
questions about restoring cardiovascular health and
preventing disease, lifestyle changes, exercise, weight
management, stress reduction, controlling diabetes,
reducing blood pressure, and lowering cholesterol.
Patients and their relatives are educated regarding
these issues with the help of weekly slide shows,
video cassettes, group discussions, booklets and brochures.
They are also trained in performing CPR cardio pulmonary
resuscitation by our centre.
UNO COUNSELLING SERVICES
Dietary guidelines are an extremely
important primary step in the management of heart
disease, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and many
other diseases. Our qualified, experienced dietitian
provides individualized diet plan for the patients
and other many essential information regarding diet,
cooking, calorie counting, exchange diets, differentiation
of fats/carbohydrates/proteins, etc.
We analyze your diet in terms of
fat, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals.
The results provide a scientific basis for making
changes in eating habits for weight loss, lowering
blood cholesterol, blood pressure, and controlling
diabetes. A balance – sheet of calorie intake and
calorie expenditure by way of daily activities gives
the patient a clear understanding of weight losing
ANALYSIS /COUNSELLING / YOGA :
Anxiety, fear, loss of confidence,
depression, denial, etc. are very common in patients
suffering from heart disease and they adversely affect
the long term outcome of the disease resulting in
treatment failures and increase the overall morbidity
and mortality. Our psychologist and yoga experts help
the patients to cope with their stress and psychological
problems more effectively and significantly improve
the treatment outcomes.
STRESS TEST :
Doctors usually recommend exercise
ECG test to heart patients to determine the severity
of their problem and also before starting an exercise
program. We conduct this stress tests and make its
results available to the doctors. The results are
used to design an exercise prescription appropriate
to the patient's exercise capacity for an effective
yet safe exercise program
MONITOR – 24 HOUR AMBULATORY ECG MONITORING :
In this test a recorder
(like a walkman) is applied to chest with ECG Electrodes.
While the patient is doing his routine activities,
this monitor continuously keeps on recording and analyzing
the ECG and whatever abnormality occurs, is reported
in the 24 - hours computerized ECG report. With this
test ECG changes during chest pain episodes, episodes
of silent ischemia and rhythm disturbances can be
recorded and can be co-related with patient's symptoms.
AMBULATORY BLOOD PRESSURE MONITORING :
Many patients become tense when they
visit doctor's office and their blood pressure increases
significantly. Also many patients have fluctuating
blood pressure levels during different times of the
day. The response of blood pressure control to the
medicines also varies from person to person. Due to
all these reasons, it is important to know the trend
of blood pressure levels through out the 24 hours
day. This helps in selecting the right kind of medicine
and the right dosage of medicine with minimum side
effect and this helps in maintaining smooth and effective
control of blood pressure through out the day.
24-HOUR AMBULATORY BLOOD PRESSURE
MONITORING is therefore a very useful test.
LUNG FUNCTION TEST :
Our Computerized lung function test
will assess your lung function capacity with the help
of latest software developed by reputed Schiller international
medical instrument company. With increasing age and
due to air pollution it is very likely that lung functions
might deteriorate and it might contribute to your
shortness of breath on exertion. Hence this test is
important for your annual checkup.
COMOSITION ANALYSIS :
This computerized system determines
total and regional body composition % body fat,
% lean tissue. It also compares them
against “ideal” and “normal” values and gives the
participants exercise guidelines to improve their
overall body composition.
