We are pleased to offer patients with chronic lung disease pulmonary rehabilitation education, endurance, strength training and support services.
Pulmonary Rehabilitation is a well-established and widely accepted treatment tool used to enhance standard therapy for those with chronic lung disease for improved independence and quality of life.
The approach is collaborative and interdisciplinary. The principal goals of pulmonary rehabilitation are to reduce, control and alleviate symptoms of shortness of breath, increase daily functional ability, decrease social isolation and improve overall quality of everyday life.
It does this through eduction for improved self-management at home, endurance and strength training for improved every day physical functioning and support services for resource information, education and socialization.
Pulmonary rehabilitation services and staff are under the medical direction of Dr. Andrew Filderman and are coordinated by Janey Bathelette, BA, RRT, CPFT.
The staff includes respiratory therapists, occupational therapists, certified exercise trainers, with social work and pastoral care services available on a consult basis.
Pulmonary rehabilitation sessions are devoted to lung health education and monitored endurance and strength training that is progressive and individualized. Our program goal is to help patients with chronic lung conditions reach their highest possible level of independent functioning within the limitations of their lung disease.
