What is Pulmonary Rehabilitation?
Pulmonary Rehabilitation at United General Hospital is a medically supervised program of progressive exercise and education for individuals with breathing problems and lung disorders.
Under the direction of a board certified pulmonologist, our team of specialized respiratory therapists assists patients in improving their breathing and to restore the ability to function independently.
The goals of pulmonary rehab are to:
Increase understanding about your condition and treatment
Increase your ability to perform your job and your daily or recreational activities
Provide you and your family with the support and motivation needed to make important lifestyle changes
