This Episode of Summit Cares Birdman talks to Dawn Marino RN and Julie Jackson RN about the Cardiac Pulmonary Rehabilitation and how it helps patients to recover and live better lives.

Help people who have a history of or are at risk for heart disease (cardiovascular disease) or are living with lung disease (pulmonary disease). People with heart disease can improve their health and reduce their risk of future cardiovascular disease, medical complications, and future hospitalizations. People with lung disease can learn to manage their disease well and reduce the risk of hospitalization.  The programs offered are designed to support a patient’s physical, emotional and social needs and include support for their families.

Summit Healthcare CardioPulmonary Rehabilitation programs serve Northeastern Arizona and use the guidelines of the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation. These programs include a specialized plan of care developed by our team of experienced, advanced life support certified, registered nurses and licensed respiratory therapists.

In the CardioPulmonary Rehabilitation Services department, cardiologists and pulmonologists work with a multidisciplinary team to manage your care. The team may include:

  • Registered Nurses
  • Respiratory Therapists
  • Nurse Educator
  • Pharmacist
  • Registered Dieticians/Diabetic Educators
  • Occupational Therapist
  • Social Worker
  • Medical Technician

Programs offered by Summit Healthcare CardioPulmonary Rehabilitation:

INPATIENT PROGRAM INTRODUCTION

Hospitalized patients receive a personal visit from one of our staff to explain the rehabilitation programs, their benefits, and how to get involved. Medicare and most other insurances cover the program for specific conditions.

PHASE II PROGRAMS

On your first visit a registered nurse or licensed respiratory therapist does an evaluation. Patients receive a six (6) minute walking or seated exercise test to assess fitness.  Together the patient and staff make a personalized plan of care that includes exercise and learning. This plan is updated throughout the program.  The program lasts up to 36 sessions of exercise and education.  Patients get a wide variety of classes about how to manage their disease including: managing stress; proper medication use; how to shop, cook, and eat healthy; how to relax for better heart and lung function; how to manage heart and lung emergencies; how to manage weight loss; understanding asthma, emphysema, and COPD; and how to do daily activity without getting too worn out.

CARDIAC PROGRAM

Designed for people who have suffered a heart attack, coronary bypass (CABG), heart valve replacement, coronary stent, heart failure, or have stable angina. The program requires a healthcare provider’s referral.  Surgical notes, an EKG, and and echocardiogram (if available) should be sent with the order.  Monitoring during exercise sessions includes continuous telemetry (heart monitoring), periodic oximetry (oxygen measurements), and blood pressure checks.  At the end of 36 sessions, patients will have a better understanding of heart problems and how to keep themselves in the best possible health.

PULMONARY PROGRAM

Is designed for people suffering with lung problems from COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) including: bronchiectasis, chronic persistent asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, and emphysema.  The program requires a health care provider’s referral, and the results of a Pulmonary Function Test (PFT) should be sent with the order.  Each session of monitored exercise includes periodic oximetry (oxygen measurements), and blood pressure checks.  Sessions also include staff instruction on use and cleaning of home equipment, oxygen use, and proper use of an inhaler.  Patients’ are taught “pursed lip breathing” to help them feel less winded.  At the end of 36 sessions, clients will have a better understanding of lung problems and how to keep themselves in the best possible health.

COMMUNITY HEALTH AND FITNESS MAINTENANCE PROGRAM

Is for patients who have completed Phase II and for members of the community who want to exercise in a group setting with nurses available.  This maintenance program is for independent exercise.  Blood pressure, pulse, and oxygen checks are available on request.  This is usually not covered by insurance (clients are self pay).

The CAPD (Cardiac and Pulmonary Discussion) group meets weekly to talk about ways of dealing with chronic heart and lung disease.  This casual meeting lets patients meet others with problems like theirs.  Spouse or one support person is welcome. It creates a support network for patients and family members. MEETINGS ARE FREE OF CHARGE.

To learn more about Summit Healthcare CardioPulmonary Rehabilitation Services call 928-532-1150.

This Episode Birdman chat with Lisa Horne about Route 66 White Mountain Geo Tour Grande Final Event.

 

Route 66 White Mountain GeoTour Presents

Free Grand Finale Event to the Public

 

SHOW LOW, ARIZONA— The Route 66 White Mountain GeoTour is hosting a free event to the public on Saturday, Oct. 8, from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m., at the Round Valley Dome in Eagar. Enjoy live music from Strange Brew, Planting Seedz, Fools Hollow Band and a live remote broadcast from Power 95.7. There will be a Kids’ Zone with a bounce house, rock wall and more! Plus, visit local booths from arts, crafts, food and market vendors. 

 

This free event is a culminating celebration of the Route 66 White Mountain GeoTour, a geocaching initiative to introduce desert dwellers, geocachers and tourists to OUR Arizona. But you need not be an out-of-towner to participate. Bring your passport with geocaches you have found from our GeoTour, and get an extra 20 points just for attending the Grand Finale Event! Each completed passport with at least 40 points will earn an official Route 66 White Mountain GeoTour trackable GeoCoin. Your completed passport will also be entered into a raffle drawing for an array of great prizes such as GPS devices, gift certificates and more!

 

Northeastern Arizona is a recreational gold mine. OUR Arizona is where outdoor enthusiasts experience the best of fishing, hunting, off-roading, skiing, tubing, sledding, camping and geocaching. OUR Arizona is a higher-elevation treasure trove full of history and Old West lore, encompassing the communities of Eagar, Navajo County, Pinetop-Lakeside, Show Low, Snowflake, Springerville, St. Johns, Taylor and Winslow. Arizona is known for its desert climate, cactus, hot summers and mild winters, but OUR Arizona is a unique contradiction.

 

What is Geocaching:

Geocaching is a free real-world outdoor treasure hunt. Players locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using a smartphone or GPS and can then share their experiences online.

 

What is a GeoTour:

GeoTours are a series of geocaches tied together by a common theme, such as the history, recreation or points of interest of a given area or region. There is no fixed itinerary, like on a traditional trail, but rather a series of points of interest in a self-guided, goal-oriented plan.

 

What is the Route 66 GeoTour Passport:

The Official Route 66 White Mountain GeoTour Passport functions as a logbook for you to track your progress as you hunt specially placed geocaches along the tour. This passport lets you record “special codes” from the geocaches you find in order to qualify for the Route 66 White Mountain GeoTour Special Edition GeoCoin. Earn extra cache dash points if you stay or eat at our participating sponsor lodgers and restaurants. Earn 20 points on your passport just for attending the GeoTour Grand Finale event!

 

What is a GeoCoin:

The Route 66 White Mountain GeoTour GeoCoin is a uniquely designed coin created to reward geocachers who complete our GeoTour Passport by collecting points for finding specific geocaches, as well as dining and lodging with our sponsors. Each GeoCoin is trackable on www.geocaching.com

 

# # # 

 

Northeastern Arizona is a recreational gold mine. Fishing, hunting, off-roading, skiing, tubing, sledding, camping, and geocaching are plentiful throughout OUR Arizona! The Route 66 White Mountain GeoTour brings our communities together to showcase all of this and more so that you can explore northeastern Arizona's small-town charm combined with great geocaching. Join us for an excellent sampling of the sights, sounds and experiences that make this expansive region special, and for the unique opportunity of a one-of-a-kind road trip and adventure that will be sure to have you coming back again and again! Welcome to OUR Arizona!
