Pulmonary Rehabilitation is a team-based program of evaluation, care, treatment and management of your breathing difficulties.
You may be short of breath because of:
- Interstitial Lung Disease
- Pulmonary Fibrosis
Your ability to breathe freely becomes a personal health challenge that can be met successfully through rehabilitation and adapting to new lifestyle behaviors which help restore a quality life.
Pulmonary Rehabilitation services are provided by specialized hospital staff members including our Medical Director, Registered Nurse, and Respiratory Therapist. When needed a Social Worker, Physical Therapist, and Dietitian are available. Mark Twain Medical Center interdisciplinary staff has extensive experience in working with people of all ages.
