Lung (Pulmonary) Rehabilitation
Are you a candidate for Pulmonary Rehabilitation?
You are a candidate if you have a documented lung disease, such as emphysema, bronchitis, asthma or any other pulmonary condition. Pulmonary rehabilitation can help you in these ways:
- Increase muscle strength
- Improve mental outlook
- Enhance respiratory function
- Expand coping skills
- Incorporate exercise into daily life
How to Get Started
Make an appointment with your physician to get a prescription. A prescription is required to participate in this program. Once you have the prescription, contact the Cardiopulmonary Department at 303.651.5123 to set your first appointment.
At your first visit, we will evaluate your pulmonary condition. This will include assessing your exercise endurance. We will create your personalized treatment program based on the evaluation. The next three phases of the program include education, safe exercise, and maintenance. Please call the Cardiopulmonary Department with any questions regarding the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program.
