Pulmonary Rehab
at Indian River Memorial Hospital

Individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) know the limitations this disease can incite, but these limitation can be reduced. The Pulmonary Rehabilitation Center at Indian River Memorial Hospital is a medically supervised program offering exercise training, respiratory care, instruction, smoking cessation, nutritional counseling, psycho-social support, oxygen therapy, and education. Pulmonary Rehabilitation is specifically designed to treat those with emphysema, asthma, chronic bronchitis, occupational and environmental lung diseases, as well as lung resection (surgery) and transplantation.

Through individualized treatment plans, patients can control and, sometimes, alleviate the symptoms and complications of pulmonary impairment. Patients are taught to achieve an optimal level of independence and physical capabilities which in turn improves their quality of life. The program includes exercise for improving both respiratory muscle strength and general physical conditioning. All exercises will be monitored by a member or the Rehabilitation Team who provide progress reports to the patient's primary physician.
