Florida Hospital's Pulmonary Rehabilitation program is designed to support and extend the care of primary, pulmonary and other specialty physicians to assist patients to manage, control and alleviate the symptoms and stresses associated with their lung disease or chronic pulmonary conditions.
The program consists of a series of monitored exercise sessions and educational classes in pulmonary disease management conducted by specially trained professional staff. The sessions focus on stabilizing and enhancing both the physical and mental aspects of pulmonary diseases helping each patient achieve the highest possible functional capacity allowable by his/her condition and life style. As a result, the patient is enabled to lead a more productive, satisfying, and active lifestyle with greater independence.
