Pulmonary rehabilitation is a multidisciplinary approach to improve the quality of life of patients with chronic respiratory disorders, such as COPD, IPF, and post lung transplant. Treatment programs are individualized and tailored to the patient and includes disease education, exercise training, and psychosocial support. In addition to strength training, participants learn about oxygen therapy and their medication treatment plan. The pulmonary rehabilitation program at the Medical University of South Carolina has a devoted team of specialists to help patients improve their exercise capacity, reduce their symptoms and improve their lives.
