About the Pulmonary Rehab Program

Our Pulmonary Rehabilitation program helps people with moderate to severe lung disease that includes patients recovering from an acute episode, people with lung disorders who need conditioning in preparation for surgery and patients whose activities are limited by chronic lung disease and shortness of breath. Individuals with chronic lung disease who feels he or she could benefit from the program may call to request an evaluation and are then referred by their physician.

 

Each patient's program begins with a comprehensive pulmonary evaluation by clinical experts in pulmonary rehabilitation.  Through a carefully planned, integrated and individualized program of supervised physical conditioning & strengthening exercise, physical capacity is increased and the patient is empowered to overcome their shortness of breath.

 

Overview of services

Medical Evaluation
A comprehensive medical evaluation is conducted by our pulmonary rehabilitation team, and then an individualized program is developed based on their findings.

 

Physical Conditioning
People with pulmonary disease often limit physical activity because they are frightened they will become short of breath; lack of activity, however, reduces muscle strength and causes weakness.

 

Our pulmonary rehabilitation program includes exercises and activities which help participants increase physical capacity and regain control of breathing. By combining exercise with breathing retraining patients improve their abilities to carry out activities of daily living with more energy and less difficulty.

 

Education
                             Patients are taught a variety of topics:

  • pulmonary disease and its management
  • self-care
  • breathing techniques
  • energy conservation
  • additional strategies to avoid breathlessness
  • medication indications and usage
  • nutrition

Nutrition Counseling
Shortness of breath can hinder the ability to eat a proper diet. The type of foods and especially the amount eaten can contribute to increased shortness of breath.  A complete consultation for specific problems attributed to lung disease and promote healthy eating habits.

 

Psycho-Social
Fear, anger, anxiety, frustration and depression often accompany lung disease. Our staff is trained and our program is designed to help patients and their families overcome these feelings.

 

Maintenance Program and Home Program
The development of an at home independent concurrent exercise regime is key to the success of our pulmonary rehabilitation program. Participants learn to handle their individualized "at home plan" prior to discharge. Follow up sessions afford participants to the opportunity to correct exercise form and to have questions answered before problems become overwhelming. After completion of the program, as a graduate, patients can follow-up with a maintenance program. 

 

Outcomes
Outcomes expected at the completion of the program are:

  • Decreased shortness of breath
  • Enhanced quality of life
  • Reduced number of hospitalizations
  • Decreased respiratory symptoms and complications
  • Improved physical conditioning
  • Better self-management of a patient's disease and increased control of daily functioning
  • Improved emotional well-being
  • Promotion and development of healthy eating habits
  • Increased compliance of medications
