Chronic Lung diseases

Pulmonary rehabilitation is a program to help people with chronic (long-term) lung disease.

Who should have pulmonary rehabilitation? Any person with a chronic lung disease might benefit from pulmonary rehabilitation. Examples of lung conditions include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, chronic bronchitis, or pulmonary fibrosis. Pulmonary rehabilitation may also be ordered to help patients either before or after chest or lung surgery.

Pulmonary rehabilitation has three main goals:

  • help your shortness of breath;
  • improve your quality of life;
  • Improve your ability to do daily living activities.

Pulmonary rehabilitation will include all of the following

  • Assessment: This can be done by a nurse, respiratory therapist, exercise physiologist, or doctor.
  • Education: subjects to help you deal with your chronic lung condition
  • Exercise: to help you feel better and do more
  • Psychosocial: to help you deal with a chronic lung condition
  • Nutrition: to help learn what foods and weight may be best
