In brief: Program
Heart failure rehabilitation is a program that is called to retrain a failed heart muscle in order to regain some of its basic functions - contractility, relaxation etc.
It usually includes certain cardiovascular and other types of exercises in graduated fashion to help the heart muscle build up its strength.

In brief: Cardiac rehab
Can start shortly after event with educational components of the program to begin to get patient in recovery mode.
The physical training components require the rhythm and hemodynamics to be stable and the other parts of patients physiology to be functioning well. Often however patient isn't even referred till much later in their progress. Education is a major component.
