Asthma, EBUS Test and Tuberculosis Treatment at Pulmonary Rehab Clinic

Pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) is a broad program that helps improve the well being of people who have chronic (ongoing) breathing problems.

Our goal is to design a unique program for recovery, health and wellness that fits each patient's needs. Pulmonary Rehabilitation program includes evaluation of the patient, exercise, education, counseling, risk factor modification and learning ways to live a healthier life.

For ICU patients, PR is an important intervention that prevents and mitigates adverse effects of prolonged bed rest and mechanical ventilation during critical illness. Rehabilitation plan is tailored to patient needs and depends on conscious state, psychological status and physical strength. It incorporates any active and passive therapy that promotes movement and includes mobilization.
