Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehabilitation also called respiratory rehabilitation is a broad program that helps improve the well-being of people who have chronic breathing problems. For example, pulmonary rehabilitation may benefit people who have COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), sarcoidosis idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, or cystic fibrosis. Pulmonary rehabilitation also can benefit people who need lung surgery, both before and after the surgery. Pulmonary rehabilitation doesn't replace medical therapy.

Pulmonary rehabilitation involves a long-term commitment from the patient and a team of health care providers. The Pulmonary rehabilitation  team may include doctors, nurses, and specialists. Examples of specialists include respiratory therapists, physical and occupational therapists, dietitians or nutritionists, and psychologists or social workers. Pulmonary rehabilitation often is an outpatient program based in a hospital or clinic.
