This therapy is focused on both heart and lung health, combining techniques
of both cardiovascular therapy with pulmonary therapy. This therapy is
most often recommended for patients who have suffered a cardiac event
and have difficulty breathing. It can also be valuable for helping patients
recover from various cardiac and pulmonary surgeries, such as a coronary
bypass or stent placement.
During this treatment, you will be supervised by a cardiopulmonary specialist
who designs a unique exercise program designed to improve physical fitness
without putting too much strain on your weakened heart. In time, your
heart should be back in good condition and you will have learned new skills
to help prevent future events.
A breathing disorder can impact every area of your life. Even simple things
like climbing stairs or taking a walk can become difficult if you suffer
from lung disease. Respiratory therapists provide treatment for patients
when they have a pressing medical issue and help them learn new lifestyle
habits to keep their lungs in good condition for years to come. Though
many lung conditions are not curable, with proper management they can
be kept under control so that they no longer prevent you from enjoying
life to the fullest.
