Pulmonary Rehabilitation is a program designed for people with chronic breathing conditions that limit the quality of life and to increase awareness about chronic lung disease. And also learn to achieve exercise with less shortness of breath. Physiologists and respiratory therapists help to determine a safe exercise routine and learn how to exercise. The program teaches a person to be in charge of breathing instead of breathing being the in charge of person. Pulmonary rehabilitation staff will supervise the exercise sessions. And the amount of time taken by the patient for exercise will be increased in gradually, therefore the level of difficulty will change based on your ability. As the muscles get stronger, the patient will exercise longer with less breathlessness.
