A Look at Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Last updated 2 years ago

Pulmonary rehabilitation may be recommended following hospital discharge or upon the diagnosis of chronic lung diseases. Pulmonary rehabilitation not only focuses on the physical needs of patients, but it also provides patients with resources and education that can help them cope with the emotional side of chronic disease.

With the staff at Northside Hospital, patients may utilize pulmonary rehabilitation for up to 24 sessions scheduled twice weekly. These sessions will offer physical therapy and guided education to reduce hospitalization and more effectively manage symptoms of lung disease. Breathing techniques, strength and endurance activities, and medication management are all incorporated into pulmonary rehabilitation for optimal recovery and ongoing care.

To explore all of the services provided by Northside Hospital that improve the health of the St. Petersburg community, visit our website or call us at (888) 598-9586. We strive to maintain the highest standards for care through all departments to create positive patient experiences every day.
