This wide-range program includes medically-supervised exercise and personal instruction designed to help relieve the physical and emotional disabilities experience by patients with chronic lung disease. The objectives of the program are to minimize the disabling effects of pulmonary illness and return the patient to a normal lifestyle. This goal is accomplished through education, regulation of proper diet and exercise, and behavior modification.
Program participants include patients with a variety of disorders, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, asthma, chronic bronchitis, pulmonary fibrosis and other pulmonary-related illnesses. The program also provides emotional and psychological support to patients and their loved ones.
Because this is a therapy program, you must be referred to the Florida Hospital New Smyrna Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program by a physician. For more information or to tour the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Department call (386) 424-5091.
