Patients with chronic respiratory conditions such as Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) or Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) often have difficulty with their 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 a period of 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 them 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.
