With the widespread news coverage of EBOLA Pershing Health System would like to pass along the following information from the CDC.


How do I protect myself against Ebola?

If you must travel to an area affected by the 2014 Ebola outbreak, protect yourself by doing the following:
    Wash hands frequently or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
    Avoid contact with blood and body fluids of any person, particularly someone who is sick.
    Do not handle items that may have come in contact with an infected person’s blood or body fluids.
    Do not touch the body of someone who has died from Ebola.
    Do not touch bats and nonhuman primates or their blood and fluids and do not touch or eat raw meat prepared from these animals.
    Avoid hospitals in West Africa where Ebola patients are being treated. The U.S. Embassy or consulate is often able to provide advice on medical facilities.
    Seek medical care immediately if you develop fever (temperature of 101.5°F/ 38.6°C) and any of the other following symptoms: headache, muscle pain, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain, or unexplained bruising or bleeding.
        Limit your contact with other people until and when you go to the doctor. Do not travel anywhere else besides a healthcare facility.

CDC has issued a Warning, Level 3 travel notice for U.S. citizens to avoid nonessential travel to Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. CDC has downgraded the travel notice for Nigeria to a Watch, Level 1 because of the decreased risk of Ebola in Nigeria. Travelers to Nigeria should practice usual precautions. CDC has also issued an Alert, Level 2 travel notice for the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). A small number of Ebola cases have been reported in the DRC, though current information indicates that this outbreak is not related to the ongoing Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

Our Services

 
Department Spotlight
Cardiac Rehab


Valerie Peavler, Exercise Physiologist
Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehab Coordinator

 

One of my cardiac rehab patients once told me, “If I had known I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself.” While we cannot choose our family, and we have no control over the risk factors we may inherit for cardiovascular diseases, there are many ways in which we can take better care of ourselves. No one can change heredity, but we can all take our prescribed medications, abstain from tobacco and caffeine, increase activity levels, and work hard to lose weight, lower cholesterol, and control diabetes.
While prevention is the ultimate goal, the American Heart Association states that one in three American adults suffers from some type of cardiovascular disease. We have learned that when a cardiac event is not prevented, only thirty percent of those patients who are eligible for cardiac rehab are getting enrolled in the program. The AHA advises physicians to aggressively encourage patients to exercise and follow cardiac rehabilitation and secondary prevention to prevent recurrent heart attacks.  Patients only need a doctor’s written prescription to get started. Anyone who has suffered from heart attack, angina, bypass surgery, stent placement, heart valve repair/replacement, or a heart/lung transplant is eligible for cardiac rehab.
Cardiac rehab patients are allowed a safe environment for physical activity in which they are in control of the intensity and duration of their workouts.  Patients are not pushed to stress their hearts or bodies beyond what they wish to do.  There are no strict requirements, only general guidelines that are modified to meet each patient’s need.  The monitored activity along with peer support from other patients with a similar background provides an experience that cannot be duplicated in your average gym. 

Pershing Memorial Hospital is dedicated to providing healthcare services for our local community. Cardiac Rehab is a service vital to improving the quality of life for our local heart patients.   
My hope is that you and I will never need cardiac rehab. I hope we all take the time to take better care of ourselves and make exercise a priority in our daily lives. John Wooden said, “If you do not have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?” If you are unable to prevent a cardiac event, and you need to have a do over, please take comfort in the knowledge that there is a program to help with the recuperation process. Talk to your doctor to find out how Cardiac Rehab can help in your recovery.  We would like to thank all of our patients, past and present, for allowing us to participate in meeting your healthcare needs. Your heart matters at Pershing Cardiac Rehab.
