Patients with chronic respiratory conditions such as Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD), or Pulmonary Hypertension often have difficulty with daily activities due to shortness of breath. Pulmonary rehabilitation is a comprehensive rehabilitation program designed specifically for patients with lung disease that has been shown to improve quality of life and relieve shortness of breath. The program involves twice-weekly sessions for 12 weeks and includes exercise and education in a group setting. The program helps patients to improve their exercise capacity, which helps them get back to daily life. It also provides education on breathing techniques to help patients cope with the symptom of breathlessness. In addition, it provides an important support system by allowing patients to meet other people with the same experience. Pulmonary rehabilitation forms an integral part of the comprehensive care of patients with respiratory conditions.

Lung cancer claims more lives in America every year than any other form of cancer. In 2020, 136,084 people died of lung cancer. That’s more than double the next-deadliest cancer—51,869 people died of colorectal cancer the same year.
Dr. Ali Abedi and his team here at Texas IPS were interviewed by SA Live on KSAT 12 on learning how to take a lung cancer risk assessment test. Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers and leading killers in both men and women in the United States.
