The open heart companion : preparation and guidance for open-heart surgery recovery
This is the first book written with the focus on the four-to-eight week recuperation period with the goal of reducing fear and stress--and maximizing support options--by simply planning ahead. Not only does the book prepare and empower the patient and loved ones before the open-heart surgery date, Part Three provides supportive guidelines, plan-ahead exercises, resources, and checklists for the challenging recovery gap between hospital discharge and readiness for a cardiac rehab program. Original.
