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:
Phase 1
  A progressive physical activity program begun at the patient's bedside to alleviate deconditioning.

Phase 2
  This phase combines monitored exercise and pulmonary education for patients who have had a recent hospital admission or who has significantly impaired lung function.

Phase 3
  The final phase focuses on the continuation of an RN monitored, yet dependent exercise/educational program.
