Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary Sleep Office

For some patients, a comprehensive rehabilitation program is key to coping with pulmonary disease. Pulmonary rehabilitation can help patients regain their strength and endurance while breathing easier. An interdisciplinary team of nurses, exercise physiologists, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and occupational therapists provide education, psychosocial support and treatment in the areas of energy conservation, activities of daily living, community skills and upper extremity strength.
