Pulmonary rehabilitation is a multidisciplinary program that helps improve the well-being of people who have pulmonary disease. Pulmonary rehabilitation may benefit people who have COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), sarcoidosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis or cystic fibrosis, and those who are preparing or and have undergone lung volume reduction surgery, lung transplant and other lung surgeries. Pulmonary rehabilitation may include:
- Exercise training
- Nutritional counseling
- Education on your lung disease or condition and how to manage it
- Energy-conserving techniques
- Breathing strategies
- Behavior/psychological counseling and/or group support
The Pulmonary rehabilitation team may include doctors, nurses, exercise specialists, respiratory therapists, physical therapists, and dietitians.
