Questions to ask Your Doctor or Nurse

  • How much should I exercise?
  • What type of exercise is best for me?
  • Should I avoid any exercises?
  • Do I need to take my pulse when I exercise?
  • Do I need to take my medications at a certain time on the days I exercise? Always check with your doctor or nurse about exercise if you have any changes to your medications!
  • Should I start a cardiac rehabilitation (rehab) program? These programs include education and a custom exercise program. They are led by healthcare providers trained to monitor your heart health.
