Description

Who Needs Pulmonary Rehabilitation?

Pulmonary rehab is a 12-week, medically-supervised exercise and education program designed to help individuals with COPD and lung diseases improve their breathing and symptoms; as well as increase endurance and strength. These conditions range from moderate to severe, and include:

  • Emphysema
  • Asthma
  • Chronic Bronchitis
  • Lung Cancer
  • Pulmonary Fibrosis
  • Pulmonary Hypertension
  • Pre and Post Lung Surgery or Transplant

 A recent pulmonary function test and a physician's referral are required.

Team Approach

A Clinical Exercise Physiologist and Respiratory Therapist supervise the exercise sessions. To provide overall care, the staff will work closely with your referring physician and with our Medical Director, Dr. Thomas Irvine.

Insurance Coverage

Most health insurance companies will cover all or part of the cost.

Pulmonary Rehab Maintenance

To help you maintain your fitness, we offer a Pulmonary Maintenance program here at Falmouth Hospital. Participants are billed on a monthly fee, and you can cancel at any time.

To Learn More:

Contact Judy Critzer, CRT at 508-457-3687 or email jacritzer@capecodhealth.org. We will be happy to answer your questions and tell you more about the program.

Breathe better....live life better

Pulmonary Rehabilitation teaches patients to be in control of their own condition rather than their symptoms controlling them.

The program can not alter the underlying disease, instead you will learn how to better manage it!
