Leading a more active life
For many patients, a successful return to work – or even daily, routine activities – requires additional care and treatment beyond their hospitalization. Our patients enter Outpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation after their hospital stay, however many others come to us at the suggestion of their doctor if they are experiencing difficulties with strength, endurance or breathing techniques resulting from pulmonary illness or injury.
Outpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation is designed to help individuals with pulmonary problems develop new strategies for monitoring and controlling their symptoms, so they can lead a more active life. Under the supervision of our pulmonary specialists, participants will develop the knowledge and skills to increase their strength and endurance and decrease their need for hospitalization and episodes of shortness of breath
The supervised program of exercise and education is open to individuals diagnosed with diseases such as emphysema, chronic asthma, chronic bronchitis, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis and other pulmonary diseases. When indicated, sleep testing may also be prescribed as part as part of our outpatient program.
