Benefits of Pulmonary Rehab

Pulmonary Rehabilitation helps you to improve your quality of life. Although Pulmonary Rehabilitation can’t cure your lung disease, it can be of great benefit and you may notice improved breathing effort and less breathing problems.

Other benefits include:

  • Decrease the symptoms of your disease or condition
  • Ability to function better in your daily life
  • Increased ability to exercise
  • Decreased symptoms and better management of anxiety and depression

Pulmonary Rehabilitation allows you to make the most of the limited lung function you have.

Available Treatments

Exercise Programs

Pulmonary Rehabilitation includes medically supervised exercise programs. Exercise will help improve your endurance and muscle strength, so you’re better able to carry out daily activities.

Patients are monitored during sessions in order to keep track of their heart rate, oxygen levels, and blood pressure. Sessions are supervised by our trained staff of registered nurses and exercise physiologists. Our staff works with physicians in order to provide a progressive exercise program that’s right for you.

Dietary Counseling

Patients also have the opportunity to receive individual dietary counseling with our registered dietician in order to maintain a healthy diet today and in the future.

Medication Counseling

Patients have a pharmacist available for individual, one-on-one medication counseling.

Referral Information

A referral is required for Pulmonary Rehab. If you have been diagnosed with lung disease, then ask your physician if pulmonary rehab is right for you. If you do not have a Pulmonologist, our Pulmonology team is currently taking new patients without a referral.

Singing River Health System’s Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation programs are nationally certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation. AACVPR-certified programs are leaders in the cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation field because they offer the most advanced practices available and have program track records of high quality patient care.
