[Academic Status]

Zhejiang Hospital is one of the earliest medical units specializing in the clinical work of cardiac rehabilitation in China; the Cardiac Rehabilitation Department of Zhejiang Hospital is established in 1999. It is a key cultivation discipline of the hospital. It is the only modern and comprehensive (multi-disciplinary) department in the province, with cardiovascular disease rehabilitation as the leading role and integrating cardiovascular disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment, rehabilitation, teaching and scientific research. Currently, there are 53 beds and a medical team of more than 30 medical staff. Since 2003, our hospital has been the chairman unit of the Cardiovascular Disease Professional Committee of Zhejiang Rehabilitation Medical Association, and has been awarded with the honor of Excellent Professional Committee by Zhejiang Rehabilitation Medical Association for many times; Zhejiang Hospital became one of the first national cardiac rehabilitation training bases in China in 2014, and the hospital was awarded with three honors by the Chinese Rehabilitation Medical Association in 2017, respectively, Outstanding Contribution Unit to Promoting Cardiac Rehabilitation , Outstanding Cardiac Rehabilitation Training Base and “Cardiac rehabilitation center quality control qualified certification unit”. In 2021, it was awarded the CDQI Cardiac Rehabilitation Demonstration Center by the Ministry of Health, Cardiovascular Special Committee of Chinese Medical Association and Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation Special Committee of Chinese Rehabilitation Medical Association. In the same year, it won the honors of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Nursing Training Base and Popular Science Popularization Demonstration Base from the Chinese Rehabilitation Medical Association

Hypertension is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and is therefore one of the main clinical work in our department, the diagnosis and treatment ward of the hypertension center of our hospital is located at our department. In addition to the daily diagnosis and treatment, scientific research and prevention of hypertension, we focus on the diagnosis, treatment and treatment of important target organ damage such as refractory hypertension, secondary hypertension and hypertension heart, brain and kidney. We have formulated a perfect standardized diagnosis and treatment system for hypertension, and the sports rehabilitation of hypertension patients is the characteristic.

[Technical Advantages]

Our team: We have established a multidisciplinary team (MDT) of more than 30 cardiologists, rehabilitation therapists, nurses, psychologists, nutritionists, and pharmacists. There are 3 chief physicians, 2 deputy chief physicians, 3 attending physicians, 3 resident physicians; 1 chief rehabilitation technician, 2 chief rehabilitation technicians, many rehabilitation technicians; and more than 10 nurses in our team; There are also psychiatrists, nutritionists, pharmacists, and so on. The team aims to find out the key points of each patient's condition, and formulate standardized and optimized diagnosis and treatment plans and individualized rehabilitation treatment plan through scientific clinical evaluation and noninvasive diagnosis and invasive evaluation of cardiopulmonary function, optimize drug prescription, develop exercise prescription, psychological prescription, nutrition prescription, and intervene in cardiovascular risk factors, formulate individualized and phased diagnosis and treatment-rehabilitation programs, improve the quality of life and reduce the clinical symptoms of patients with cardiovascular disease, reduce the risk of re-hospitalization, and reduce the morbidity and mortality.


The existing instruments and equipment including:

1. Exercise plate electrocardiogram: used for the diagnosis of coronary heart disease, heart function assessment, make exercise prescription, guide exercise.

2. Exercise cardiopulmonary function detector: used to determine the maximum oxygen consumption, metabolic equivalent, carbon dioxide discharge, ventilation volume, no oxygen threshold, heart rate, heart rhythm, ST changes, blood pressure changes, etc. For the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of heart disease, respiratory disease, to evaluate the effect of clinical treatment, to evaluate health status, to evaluate and select athletes, to make exercise prescription, and to guide rehabilitation exercise. Combine with the exercise plate test in the diagnosis of heart disease, disease assessment, rehabilitation exercise training guidance has unique advantages.

3. In vitro counter-pulsation therapy: It is equivalent to an external cardiac blood pump, which pushes the arterial blood and the heart back to the area of the cardiovascular and cerebral artery vascular ischemia, improving the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular ischemia. Functions: promote cerebral blood circulation and collateral circulation, prevent the recurrence of ischemic stroke, and improve hemiplegic limb movement and sensory function, suitable for coronary heart disease, from acute myocardial infarction, after coronary artery bypass grafting and after stenting, cerebral arteriosclerosis, transient cerebral ischemia, vascular dementia, dizziness, tinnitus, renal function decline and so on.

4. Preconditioning therapy for ischemia: promote the formation of collateral circulation in distal pathological ischemic sites through physiological ischemic training, therefore, become a new approach for ischemic cardiac rehabilitation.

5. Vascular elasticity detection in the four limbs: accurately, rapidly and comfortably measuring the degree of arteriosclerosis and arterial stenosis through non-invasive examination. The examination results could reflect the degree of arteriosclerosis in patients with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes mellitus, and nephropathy, and achieve an early prediction of cardiovascular disease, the evaluation of drug efficacy, to evaluate the prognosis of cardiovascular disease.

6. Individualized precision exercise rehabilitation under medical care: formulate the sports prescriptions through accurate cardiopulmonary function assessments. Including aerobic exercise, resistance training, balance function training, muscle strength, muscle endurance training, joint motion training, breathing mode adjustment, respiratory muscle training, etc, with perfect effect on improving the cardiac endurance and improving life quality; meanwhile, there are full-time nurses and rehabilitation therapists to conduct blood pressure and ECG monitoring before and after exercise, and conduct observation and guidance during exercise, to ensure safety and effectiveness.

7. Health science popularization: Regular hosting, face-to-face communication with patients. Mainly for the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of common diseases such as coronary heart disease, hypertension, diabetes health knowledge.

Note: Outpatient and inpatient patients can make exercise prescriptions and participate in various rehabilitation treatments


[Research Orientations]


      Focus on the comprehensive rehabilitation intervention of cardiovascular patients, especially the patients after myocardial infarction, PCI and heart failure, in order to control the risk factors, improve cardiovascular function, enhance the efficacy, reduce the proportion of drug treatment, reduce cardiovascular events, and improve the quality of life.


[Job Descriptions]

Mainly for acute and chronic cardiovascular patients through advanced modern diagnosis and treatment technology, according to the cause, disease degree, disease nature, cardiopulmonary function, psychology, nutrition, from the hospitalization treatment to the hospital follow-up, there are a complete set of programs, and gradually improved in the research. For the early recovery of acute and chronic myocardial infarction, cardiac insufficiency, after cardiac stent, heart surgery, heart bypass surgery, arrhythmia and other diseases, symptom control, establish collateral circulation, improve cardiopulmonary function, a large number of cases have achieved good results. The effect was more significant on CHD risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, and hyperlipidemia.Different clinical programs and five prescriptions major cardiac rehabilitation prescriptions are used according to person. The department is the provincial women's civilization post, beautiful environment, warm and comfortable, quality service, have created an excellent medical atmosphere. It has established a series of relatively mature programs / processes integrating the integrated diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment, and rehabilitation, and truly realized the one-stop service for cardiovascular disease. We carry out early bedside cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, critical illness rehabilitation, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation.

Types of patients admitted

Diagnosis and treatment of patients with cardiovascular disease and rehabilitation, mainly for coronary heart disease, coronary stent rehabilitation, coronary bypass surgery, unstable angina, acute and chronic heart failure, cardiomyopathy, valvular disease, arrhythmia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lower limb vascular disease, elderly patients with cardiopulmonary function, and all kinds of refractory, the diagnosis and treatment of secondary hypertension, etc.

Daily diagnosis and treatment contents
