In brief: Multidisciplinary

Cardiac rehab does not have stages as much as it has components.
Once someone enters a cardiac rehab program, the staff focuses on aerobic exercise, strength training, stress management, dietary modification, smoking cessation. Each patient will progress at his/her own rate and is monitored closely. Reports are sent back to the physician so he/she may monitor the patient's progress.

In brief: 2 stages

Different programs may differ but generally there is an early stage with close monitoring used immediately after surgery or heart attack and a second stage of increased activity with less or no monitoring.
