It takes hard work and dedication, but each day we see the benefit of cardiac rehabilitation at Tri Valley Health System. We utilize the treadmills, NuStep and weights for cardiac rehabilitation. Each rehab session includes exercise with cardiac monitoring, heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation checks as well as nutrition and other education.
