Pulmonary rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehabilitation treats such conditions as:

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
  • Emphysema.
  • Chronic bronchitis.
  • Asthma.
  • Pulmonary fibrosis.
  • Interstitial lung disease.
  • Pre- and post- lung transplant surgery.
  • Other pulmonary conditions as determined by a physician.

In both programs, people receive functional testing for their exercise capacity and an individualized exercise program is planned. Education and intervention in dietary considerations, lifestyle changes, medication control, stress reduction techniques, smoking cessation and other psychosocial concerns are included as part of both rehabilitation programs.
