How Can Pulmonary Rehabilitation Help Me?
Learning new techniques of coping with your lung disease will bring an improvement in your quality of life. The goal of Pulmonary Rehabilitation is to enable you to achieve the fullest physical, emotional, and social potential possible.
These goals are accomplished by covering such topics as:

- Recognizing signs of lung infection
- Breathing exercises
- Control and alleviate the symptoms and complications of lung disease
- Decreasing anxiety and depression
- Energy conservation
- Breathing medications
- Nutrition and your breathing
- Smoking Cessation
- Exercise to increase your strength and endurance
- Relaxation techniques
- Oxygen therapy if indicated
Our nationally certified Pulmonary Rehabilitation program consists of evaluation, education, exercise and emotional support specifically designed for the lung patient.
Educational information is provided through individual consultations, group lectures, video and audio cassette tapes, and handouts. Family members are strongly encouraged to attend all education classes.
Supervised and monitored exercise sessions meet three times per week for approximately 6-12 weeks. Equipment includes: treadmills, stationary bikes, rowers, arm cranks, and NuSteps. The length of your program depends on your diagnosis and progress.
