The Pulmonary Rehabilitation program at St. Luke's Hospital is a comprehensive program available for inpatients and outpatients with chronic lung disease. The program is certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation.
Respiratory therapists provide a safe, monitored environment for patients to improve their activity tolerance and increase endurance. While each patient will have an individualized exercise program developed to meet their specific needs, every patient receives guidance, encouragement, education and emotional support from their respiratory therapist. Exercise physiologists, physical and occupational therapists, pharmacists, registered nurses and dietitians are available for consultation to meet specific patient needs. Insurance benefits will be discussed prior to scheduling the initial visit.
Benefits of Pulmonary Rehabilitation include: increased physical activity, fewer hospital stays, increased survival, improved disease management, reduced depression and peer support.
