Pulmonary Rehabilitation

The pulmonary rehabilitation program provides the patient and family with information and support to meet the day-to-day challenges of living with a chronic lung disorder. Individualized treatment plans are designed to improve quality of life by increasing the participant's ability to complete every day activities, decrease anxiety and depression, reduce complications and hospitalizations and reinforce proper use of medication. Each session includes both education and exercise. The pulmonary rehabilitation team includes: physical therapists, registered nurses, occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, dietitians, pharmacists, and physicians.

After completing pulmonary rehabilitation, patients are strongly encouraged to continue with Breathing Easy classes at The Lifestyle Center if possible, but most importantly to continue with exercises learned in their classes.

Breathing Easy Classes are offered Monday and Wednesday 10:30 a.m. at The Lifestyle Center, 5105 W. Cypress Ave. Information: 624-3400 or visit www.thelifestylecenter.org. These classes are also available to appropriate individuals who have not attended the pulmonary rehabilitation program.
