For most people breathing is not something to think about - it's inhale, exhale all day every day. But if you suffer from a chronic respiratory disease, taking a breath may not be so simple.

At Island Hospital, we have designed a Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program to help patients breath easier if they have been diagnosed with a condition such as:
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Bronchial asthma
  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Neuromuscular disease
  • Restrictive disorders
  • Emphysema
  • Cystic fibrosis


Our Program

The Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program at Island Hospital includes 36 monitored exercise sessions and weekly education specific to each patient's needs. The program is covered by most insurance plans and is reimbursed by Medicare. You will need your physician's referral to participate in the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program.

At exercise and education sessions you will be among others who understand the challenges of your condition and may share the doubts and fears you face. The exercise component of your Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program begins with an individual activity plan that is keyed to your current condition. It includes monitored physical conditioning to increase muscle strength, build endurance and reduce respiratory symptoms as you adopt new strategies to help you breathe easier.

Your individual plan will be regularly reviewed by a pulmonologist and a respiratory therapist. Adjustments will be made to help you meet personal goals and make gains in handling daily activities.


The Team

At Island Hospital, your Pulmonary Rehabilitation team of experienced healthcare professionals includes a respiratory therapist, a registered nurse, a pulmonologist and an exercise physiologist. Other team members may include a pharmacist and your own doctor. Our staff of specialists will assist you with a monitored exercise program tailored to your individual needs and reviewed to chart your progress.
