Pulmonary Rehabilitation


The goal of the Pulmonary Rehab Program is to help individuals with lung problems to maintain or return to an optimal level of physical, psychological and/or vocational well-being.

Phase 1

Phase 1 includes assessment, instructions and education of breathing technique, use of inhalers and oxygen use.

Phase 2

Phase 2 incorporates and reinforces principles of Phase 1 with monitored cardiopulmonary conditioning.

Goal
