What is cardiac rehabilitation?

Cardiac rehabilitation, often abbreviated as cardiac rehab, is a medically supervised program dedicated to facilitating the swift and comprehensive recovery of individuals with heart-related conditions. This program addresses not only the physical aspect of recovery but also the mental and social dimensions of the patient’s well-being. The overarching goal of cardiac rehab is to stabilize, slow down, and in some cases, even reverse the progression of cardiovascular disease. By achieving this objective, cardiac rehab plays a pivotal role in diminishing the risk of heart disease, the occurrence of another cardiac event, or the ultimate consequence of cardiac-related mortality.

Key aspects of cardiac rehabilitation:

Medical supervision: Cardiac rehab is conducted under the watchful eye of a team of medical professionals, ensuring that the program is tailored to the patient’s specific needs, medical history, and current condition. This supervision encompasses physicians, nurses, exercise physiologists, dietitians, and counsellors, who collectively guide the patient through the process.

Comprehensive recovery: Beyond addressing physical health, cardiac rehab acknowledges the importance of mental and social well-being. It provides a holistic approach to recovery, helping patients regain not only their physical strength and endurance but also their mental and emotional resilience. Moreover, it fosters social connections, offering support and encouragement from both healthcare providers and fellow patients.

Preventive focus: Cardiac rehab serves as a preventive measure, with the aim of mitigating the progression of cardiovascular disease. By promoting heart-healthy habits, including exercise, dietary modifications, stress management, and medication adherence, it actively reduces the risk of future cardiac complications and contributes to an improved quality of life.

In summary, cardiac rehabilitation is a dynamic program that goes beyond physical recovery, addressing the mental and social aspects of patients’ well-being. Its mission is to not only enhance recovery but also serve as a preventive strategy, ultimately reducing the burden of cardiovascular disease and fostering heart-healthy lives for those who participate.

Types of cardiac patients:

  • Individuals who have experienced a heart attack (cardiac infarct).
  • Patients with heart failure
  • Those with rhythm disorders (arrhythmias).
  • Individuals with pacemakers.
  • Patients in the process of recovering from cardiac surgery.

Personal objectives in cardiac rehabilitation:

  • Maximize exercise capacity.
  • Foster a healthier lifestyle
  • Conquer exercise-related fearfulness.
  • Restore self-confidence.
  • Gain insight into personal physical limits.
  • Effectively manage limitations and concerns.

Frequently asked questions

Is the SpO2 option compatible with LCRM?

Yes the SpO2 results are visible during the rehab session.

Can I loop Lode rehab products easily?

Yes! It is very easy to create a comfortable rehab setting with Lode rehab products by looping the ergometers:

The first Lode rehab ergometer can be connected to the PC with LCRM with a Lode proprietary network to PC cable (#930930).
The second product up till the last product can be connected to the previous one, a bus network configuration.

The last product always needs a termination plug to avoid interference and loss of data. All Lode rehab products come standard with such a termination plug.

– Flawless data connection
– High bandwidth
– No interference of COM ports
– Looping
– Full access of all data in the product to LCRM

Will my existing Lode streamers and ergometers still be compatible when I upgrade the LCRM software to a newer version?

Yes you can upgrade to a newer LCRM version without any influence on the total LCRM installation, The Lode Streamers, ergometers and treadmills will work as usual.

How do I switch on the ECG streamer?

A press longer than 3 seconds of the blue start/stop button starts the measuring of the device. A green light indicates that the device is switched on with a slow blink. A blue light indicates the connection state. A fast blink of the blue light indicates the device
is waiting for a connection. A slow blink of the blue light indicates the device is connected and sending data.

How do I switch off the ECG streamer?

To switch the ECG streamer OFF, press and hold the blue button for about 3 seconds. The green light will blink 3 times and the product is OFF.

How do I recharge the battery of the ECG streamer?

Besides charging the device with the USB charge cable (950792), there is a docking station (950840, optional) to charge four streamers at the same time. The red light indicates the state of the battery charging. This light is on during charging and off when charging finished.

How should I place the electrodes to obtain a proper Lead I and lead II ECG signal?

Placement of the electrodes: Red: right arm, 1st intercostal space, avoiding thick muscle Yellow: left arm, 1st intercostal space, avoiding thick muscle Green: left leg, 6th intercostal space Black: right leg ground electrode, 6th intercostal space Lead I: Red Electrode (right arm) and Yellow Electrode (left arm) Lead II: Red Electrode (right arm) and Green Electrode (left leg) See manual m950920 chapter 7 for a picture of the electrode placement.

Do I need special ECG electrodes for a cardiac rehab training?

It’s essential to use ECG electrodes which are suitable for stress testing. These electrodes have extra-strong adhesion and therefore stick better during exercise and/or testing. Use always 4 electrodes of the same brand, type and expiration date. The cheaper quality ECG electrodes for taking an ECG during rest will not stick enough when the patient starts to sweat.

Is it possible to lower the workload in case of a sudden SpO2 drop?

SpO2 can be used to control the load of the ergometer. In the tab “SpO2 ” you can choose to use SpO2 for automatic load adjustment and you can edit the settings (see manual LCRM 950902)

Is it possible to use non-Lode devices in LCRM?

LCRM is not compatible with bicycle ergometers and treadmills of another brand, the workload, speed or slope can not be crontrolled. It is possible however to select the “ECG-only protocol” and use the non-Lode device as a stand-alone system.

Is LCRM compatible with automatic BP measurement devices?

When the automatic Blood Pressure option is available on the Lode ergometer, this module is compatible with LCRM. You can program the blood pressure interval in the exercise protocols.

Is it possible to use a Heart rate controlled protocol in LCRM?

The stage “Heart Rate Controlled” gives you the opportunity to create a protocol to train with a certain heart rate. You can set the training duration and the target heart rate. The intensity (load or speed and inclination) will be controlled by the software in order to come to this certain heart rate as well as to keep the heart rate stable around the target. To set “The Target Heart Rate” you can choose between absolute heart rate, relative to max heart rate or Karvonen.

Is it possible to switch between protocols during a training in LCRM

During a training it is possible the adjust the workload (in Watt, speed slope and target HR). You can switch from workload controlled towards HR controlled and vice versa as well.

At what distance can the wireless ECG connection still function?

The theoretical maximum range of the signal is 20 meter (depending strongly on the environment)

How do I make a HL7 connection with the Hospital Information System?

LCRM allows for data interchange with Hospital Information Systems (HIS) via the HL7 standard. Since there are many HIS that use different interpretations and versions of HL7 connectivity may not work out of the box. For some HIS special adaptations need to be made. In the General Settings, tab HL7 you can connect to your HL7 server if you have one. Please contact your systems administrator for the settings. Lode can provide support to implement your specific communication requests. You may contact Lode if this is required.

Is it possible to receive an interpretation of the ECG (like ST changes, rythm disorders, fibrilations) with LCRM?

The LCRM software is not meant to be a diagnostic tool, the ECG signal can be used for monitoring. When there are concerns about the data, always use a diagnostic 12-lead ECG device to (dis)confirm

What do I need to do when I receive the message: poor bluetooth signal?

The message “poor bluetooth signal” is not a warning about the quality of the ECG signal. It’s only a warning about the bluetooth signal. The ECG streamer might be near the maximum range of the bluetooth (theoretical maximum 20 meter). Bluetooth signals can be disturbed by external causes as well (like other BT devices in or near the streamers)

Is it possible to use the LCRM and streamer for a maximal exercise test?

The LCRM software is not meant to be a diagnostic tool, the ECG signal can be used for monitoring up to 16 patients simultaneously. For a maximal (CPET) exercise test, always use a diagnostic (12-lead) exercise ECG device.

How is the LCRM software dealing with privacy and GPDR regulations?

Since LCRM software version 3.0, deactivate, reactivate and remove actions are logged on username, action and id number of the operator; because of privacy and GPDR regulations names and date of births are not logged. The logfiles can be found in %appdata%/lode/lcrm as AuditLod.csv.

Is it possible to use the LCRM software and streamer in a ball game?

When there is no ergometer connected to the slot, you can create “ECG Only” Protocols. These protocols are meant to monitor ECG while the participant is doing exercises without ergometer, like ball games, squats, lunges or jumps. Keep in mind the streamer needs to be in the range of the system and extreme muscle activity of the upper body will influence the ECG quality.

Is it possible to use the PWC protocol with LCRM?

A Physical Work Capacity (PWC) Protocol can be programmed for the bicycle ergometers. During a PWC protocol the workload will increase every 2 seconds with 1 watt untill the set heart rate is reached. The Workload belonging to the target heart rate is the PWC result which is dependent on the physical condition of the patient.

Is it possible to use a Karvonen protocol and adjust the percentages with LCRM?

A Karvonen protocol can be selected. In the Karvonen protocol the formula based on maximum heart rate and resting heart rate is implemented: HR (Karvonen) = HRrest + (HRmax – HRrest) * x%. The percentage is defined by the physician depending on the physical improvement of the participant. The resting heart rate and maximum heart rate should be defined in the participant characteristics.

I would like to put the LCRM data on a shared drive so that I can access it from different PC's. Is that possible?

the LCRM database can be connected to a MS SQL Server. Data stored on the MS SQL server can be reached from another PC with installed LCRM software which is connected to this MS SQL server.

Can I share LCRM data between 2 (or more) rooms with LCRM setups?

Data locally stored can’t be shared, but data stored on a MS SQL server can be shared. Please note that the raw ECG data is stored on the PC on which the trainings are performed. Only marked ECG data is stored in the database and accessible from other locations.

My Streamer does not connect to the PC?

Check if the USB dongles are connected to the PC and if there is at least one more dongle connected to the PC than the amount of streamers you have.

Do I need a new license for the upgrade to a newer version of LCRM?

Yes you will need a new license to upgrade LCRM. This license can be supplied by the Lode service support. You may need to order this via your distributor

Is an upgrade to a newer version of LCRM for free?

An upgrade to a newer version of software will give you more functionality, it’s not for free.
An update will give you small improvements and bug fixes, this is for free.

Why should I consider replacing my ECG modules for Lode ECG Streamers?

The Lode ECG streamer is a compact 2-channel system with integrated rechargeable batteries. It can be supplied with an optional custom pack (#950824) for triggering the TTL pulse (needed for blood pressure measurement).

Can I use a charged ECG streamer for a whole day?

Fully charged the streamer can be used for approximately 8 hours. The integrated battery of the ECG streamer can be recharged with the USB charge cable (950792), or 4 simultaneously in the optional docking station (950840).

Can the Valiant be controlled by LCRM?

Yes the Valiant Treadmill can be controlled by LCRM. The treadmill is supplied with a RS232 port and can be controlled by a seperate com port.
