What Is Pulmonary Rehabilitation?
Pulmonary rehabilitation is a physician-supervised program for people who have chronic lung diseases such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, asthma, bronchiectasis, interstitial lung disease, or lung tumors. Pulmonary rehabilitation programs can often improve function, reduce symptoms, and improve the well-being of patients.
