This collection covers what patients are likely to experience as they move along their recovery path in the hospital and includes discharge education to help patients transition to home. Covering what patients can expect before they leave the hospital and the guidelines for care during the first few weeks at home. Specific guidelines include the drive home, physical activity restrictions, continuing breathing exercises, developing a routine, taking medications, incision care, signs of infection, and follow-up appointments and the benefits of cardiac rehabilitation.
