The Seton Health Pulmonary Rehabilitation program is designed for patients living with asthma, chronic bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other chronic lung diseases. Symptoms of lung disease, such as shortness of breath and loss of energy, can lead to difficulty performing daily activities.
Our Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program features a structured 10-week series of classes individualized for each patient. Combining both one-on-one and group classes, educational topics include medications, breathing devices, energy conservation, nutrition, stress management and more. Supervised exercise and resistance training help patients safely and effectively achieve increased stamina and a greater level of comfort. Patients will use treadmills, recumbent bicycles and stair-steppers, free weights and more.
Most patients note a significant increase in energy levels and quality of life, and a decrease in limitations and symptoms. Our Graduate Program assists patients in maintaining optimum health.
Seton Health Pulmonary Rehabilitation program is honored to have received the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) Quality Respiratory Care Recognition Award. Receiving the Association’s Quality Respiratory Care Recognition (QRCR) designation means our Ventilator and Respiratory Care Program meets strict safety and quality standards related to the provision of respiratory care services by qualified respiratory therapists. The AARC Quality Respiratory Care Recognition means you will receive first rate care at any facility that has this award.
