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.

Although 16 million Americans have been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, it remains remarkably misunderstood, even to some people already suffering.
Untreated obstructive sleep apnea presents very real threats: it can increase your risk of high blood pressure, stroke, and heart attack, and has been linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and even glaucoma.
