  • Pulmonary Rehabilitation

  • Learning to breathe – and function – at the highest level possible.


    Pulmonary Rehabilitation at St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center is a 12-week evidence based program designed for people with chronic lung disease like COPD, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, asthma, interstitial lung disease or lung cancer. Pulmonary rehab helps people with moderate to severe breathing problems overcome physical limitations resulting from their disease and aims to improve quality of life by:

    • Decreasing respiratory symptoms and complications
    • Encouraging self-management and control over daily functioning
    • Improving physical conditioning and exercise performance
    • Improving emotional well-being
    • Reducing hospitalizations 


    Each patient's program begins with a comprehensive pulmonary evaluation by clinical experts in pulmonary rehabilitation. Through a carefully planned, integrated and individualized program of supervised physical conditioning, exercise, and educational and nutritional counseling, physical capacity is increased and the patient is empowered to overcome their shortness of breath.
