Pulmonary Rehab

For patients suffering from certain conditions, such as asthma or COPD, inhalers and bronchodilators can alleviate symptoms and make breathing easier. Bronchodilators are medications delivered through an inhaler. These medications open up the breathing tubes in your lungs to make breathing easier. The effect of the bronchodilators can vary between 4 and 24 hours. Depending upon the specific medication used, you may take it in order to provide long-lasting relief, or as a quick-acting support before beginning strenuous activities, such as exercise.

Getting the full effect of the bronchodilators requires you to use your inhaler correctly. There are several different types of inhalers, all of which deliver medicine into your lungs. However, if you have never been taught to use your inhaler correctly, then you may not be getting the full benefit of your inhaled medicine. In order to benefit fully from your medications, check with your doctor to make sure you understand the type of inhaler you have and how to use it properly.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation is a program of exercise and education that helps people with lung conditions such as COPD and emphysema to improve their breathing, increase their endurance, and improve their overall quality of life. Pulmonary Rehabilitation may be inpatient or outpatient program.

During Pulmonary Rehabilitation, you will participate in a variety of exercises such as walking, cycling, and resistance training. You will also receive education on how to manage your lung condition, including breathing techniques and how to use your medications properly.

The frequency of Pulmonary Rehabilitation sessions will depend on your individual condition and treatment plan. Typically, sessions are held several times a week for a few weeks to several months.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation can help improve lung function and reduce symptoms such as shortness of breath. It can also help to improve your overall health and quality of life. However, the effectiveness of rehabilitation will vary depending on the individual and the underlying lung condition.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation sessions are led by our team of healthcare professionals such as respiratory therapists, nurses, and exercise physiologists who are specially trained in caring for patients with lung conditions.
