Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program

A path to better breathing: Pulmonary Rehabilitation at Community Memorial Hospital

The Pulmonary Rehab program at CMH is designed to help patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), including:

  • Emphysema
  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Other lung diseases

The goal is for patients to enhance their quality of life by improving their physical health. Here at CMH, our goal is to slow the progression of lung disease symptoms through a comprehensive program.

CMH is committed to helping patients with lung disease

Though Pulmonary Rehabilitation cannot cure lung disease, it can help patients make the most of their limited lung function. Over time, you may notice better, easier breathing and less frequent breathing challenges.

This is where our program comes in. Pulmonary Rehab will include information on:

  • Exercise conditioning
  • Lung function
  • Sleep apnea
  • Breathing retraining
  • Diet and nutrition
  • Energy conservation
  • Medication management
  • Oxygen and home care

Our skilled, highly-trained staff will work with you to develop a custom healthcare solution tailored to your respiratory needs.  A medical director, exercise physiologist, respiratory therapist, social worker, chaplain, dietician, occupational therapist, pharmacist, and speech therapist will all be involved in your care.

Pulmonary Rehab is available for patients who may be suffering from long COVID

The challenges that may accompany COVID-19 can continue for many weeks or months following a diagnosis and can drastically impact a person’s well being and ability to conduct their daily life.

Pulmonary Rehab can help you take your life back! Our interventions include:

  • Patient assessment and goal setting
  • Blood pressure, heart rate, and oxygen saturation monitoring
  • Psychosocial support
  • Exercise training
  • Strength training

From exercise plans to psychosocial support, we have you covered. Consider Pulmonary Rehab to:
