Pulmonary rehabilitation is a supervised program that includes exercise training, disease, and medication education, and breathing techniques for individuals who have certain lung conditions that prevent them from doing daily living activities. Pulmonary rehabilitation will help you manage your disease, increase your stamina, and decrease your breathlessness. At Meade District Hospital, our Pulmonary Rehabilitation Director will educate you on how to pace your breathing with activities and prepare an exercise program just for you. The exercises will begin at a level that you can handle. The amount of time you exercise will be increased through time and the level of difficulty will change based on your ability. As your muscles get stronger, you will exercise longer with less breathlessness and exhaustion.
