The Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program is designed to help people with pulmonary (lung) problems recover faster and improve their quality of life. A Registered Respiratory Therapist coordinates the individualized program that includes 24 sessions of exercise, education, counseling and support for patients and their families. A physician referral is required.
The programs aid patients in improving their overall physical, mental and social functioning. The goal is to help patients return to a state of wellness equal to or greater than their previous condition.
