Pulmonary Rehab

Pulmonary Rehab is a medically supervised exercise program designed to help people with chronic lung disease. The goals of pulmonary rehabilitation include helping patients understand and live with chronic lung disease, improve strength and stamina, decrease shortness of breath, as well as symptoms of depression and anxiety. Educational classes are offered to cover the core components of pulmonary rehab at no additional cost. Core components include: stress management, blood pressure management, smoking cessation, medication management, exercise tolerance, nutritional evaluation and education. Educational classes are also offered on requested health topics depending on patients’ needs.

Qualifying diagnosis for pulmonary rehab include:

  • COPD Gold Stage 2, 3, or 4
  • Long haul COVID
  • Asthma
  • Pulmonary fibrosis
  • Interstitial lung disease

Any other diagnoses can be in the phase 3 pulmonary rehab program. This program is a medically supervised exercise program. Staff take blood pressure and pulse before, during, and after exercise. All educational opportunities are offered to phase 3 programs at no additional cost. Each exercise class is $7 and IS NOT billable to insurance.

Pulmonary Function Test

Pulmonary Function Test (PFT) is a noninvasive breathing test to tell your doctor how well your lungs are working. FMDH is proud to be able to offer a wide array of PFTs from basic spirometry, diffusing capacity, pre/post bronchodilator, lung volumes, body plethysmography, or nitrogen washout if indicated. These tests measure how much air your lungs can hold, how effective you are when you breath, and how the gas is exchanging in your lungs. Based off of these tests, your doctor can diagnose and treat your lung disease.
