Breathing, it’s something most people don’t ever really think about, that is, until there is a problem. When you do struggle with breathing, it’s hard to think about anything else.
National Pulmonary Rehabilitation Week celebrates pulmonary programs and the dedicated respiratory therapists who staff them. Sponsored by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation, this week is designed to let the nation know how important pulmonary rehabilitation programs are to the health and well-being of lung disease patients.
Not being able to breath is terrifying. To minimize symptoms, it may be helpful to participate in a pulmonary rehab class. Pulmonary rehab programs vary in format and length. Most programs use a small group format and include:
- Education about your condition, symptoms, medications, and oxygen
- Supervised exercise classes and instruction
- Breathing techniques
- Nutritional counseling
- Emotional health support
