Which of the following is a priority for a client who has just had a myocardial infarction?
1. Low-back training program.
2. Risk modifcation education.
3. Strength training program.
4. Jogging exercise program.
Cardiac rehabilitation includes client and family education and individualized activity counseling. Generally, the educational programs focus on presenting all of the risk factors associated with coronary artery disease. Low- back training is associated with a back injury recovery program. A strengthtraining or jogging exercise program is not appropriate immediately after a cardiac event.
