Pulmonary Rehab

Don’t let everyday activities take your breath away.

CentraCare Pulmonary Rehabilitation program can help. During pulmonary rehab you are taught about your lung disease, and energy conserving techniques so you don’t get as short of breath with activities. You will also learn how to properly use your breathing medications, which is an important part of your success. Rehab sessions also include exercise at your pace, starting out slowly and doing more each week.

This program is for people who have:

  • COPD (Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease)
  • Asthma
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Emphysema
  • Pulmonary Fibrosis
  • Pre/post Lung Transplant
  • Obesity Related Hypoventilation

Respiratory Therapists, exercise physiologists, and/or registered nurses are present when you exercise. They are ACLS certified and have extensive clinical experience in pulmonary rehab. Each session is monitored, and frequent reports are available to your healthcare provider.

A physician referral is required to participate in this program. It may be covered by your insurance based on your diagnosis and individual health insurance policy.
