Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Lung Disease Treatment at Kirby Medical Center

  • Phase II Pulmonary Rehab– Participants in this program meet with their therapist twice a week to perform special lung exercises. These exercises may be done while wearing a heart monitor. Therapists will instruct participants in various ways to improve their condition through bronchial hygiene, relaxation techniques, breathing exercises, and respiratory medication.
  • Phase III Pulmonary Rehab – Certain patients may continue their rehab after completing Phase II if it is determined that their condition would benefit from additional supervised exercises.

You may benefit from pulmonary rehab if you have been diagnosed with:

  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Asthma
  • Sarcoidosis
  • Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Chronic bronchitis

Many patients who undergo chest or lung surgery may want to consider pulmonary rehabilitation during their recovery. By the end of the program, participants should have tools to help them live a normal, productive life.
