Pulmonary Rehabilitation is an educational/exercise program designed to help individuals with various forms of lung disease reduce risk factors, improve breathing techniques and safely increase their exercise program.
It consists of 3 phases:
A progressive physical activity program begun at the patient's bedside to alleviate deconditioning.
This phase combines monitored exercise and pulmonary education for patients who have had a recent hospital admission or who has significantly impaired lung function.
The final phase focuses on the continuation of an RN monitored, yet dependent exercise/educational program.
