Who Does Lifeline’s Pulmonary Rehab Program Help?

If you are seeking respiratory care, Lifeline is one of the largest pulmonary rehab programs in the region and is accredited by AACVPR which demonstrates adherence to current, essential national clinical standards and guidelines.

It’s hard to have a full life when you can’t get a full breath. Too often, those with breathing issues find themselves in a downward spiral of inactivity and isolation. Our Pulmonary Rehab program can help reduce the life-limiting effects associated with various lung as well as other non-lung related conditions.

Our multidisciplinary approach works with patients with COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, pneumonia, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, asthma, post lung infections, post ICU syndrome (PICS), decreased lung capacity, or even a lung transplant.  Our program can even help those recovering other transplants such as kidney and liver transplants.

Under the supervision of our experts, you’ll increase your understanding of your disease and confidence in managing it which will improve your independence.  We will work with you to improve your breathing, reduce shortness of breath, minimize anxiety, and improve the overall quality in your life. Because movement is key to progress, we’ll create a program plan tailored to your needs and comfort level.  Our unique approach requires physical therapy, respiratory therapy, and social work to all play a key role in improving your health. We don’t just treat you lung health, we treat the whole patient.

In pulmonary rehab, one positive step leads to a multitude of others. To learn more about how we can help you, contact us at 412-646-4141 or visit our website lifeline-therapy.com
