People who undergo heart surgery or suffer a cardiac event are typically prescribed a cardiac rehabilitation program as part of their recovery process, but less than 13 percent of those who are eligible to participate actually do.

According to Cleveland Clinic cardiologist Dr. Leslie Cho, cardiac rehab is one of the best things that heart patients can do to improve their odds of survival as well as their quality of life.
