Pulmonary rehabilitation

Overview

The Community Pulmonary Rehabilitation programmes are held at various venues across Norfolk. The service is lead by a respiratory nurse specialist and run by experienced physiotherapists, respiratory nurses and technical instructors/support workers.

The courses are designed for people with a diagnosed respiratory condition (such as COPD, bronchiectasis, interstitial lung diseases etc) who are beginning to experience limitations in every day activities because of breathlessness.  Pulmonary rehabilitation concentrates on improving  physical fitness, quality of life and confidence for those living with a long term lung disease.

Each course consists of a pre-course assessment, six consecutive two hour sessions for groups of up to 16 people and a final discharge assessment. Patients are given an individual exercise programme and lung health education. Topics covered include:

  • how do your lungs work?
  • getting the best from your respiratory medications
  • relaxation and breathing control and secretion clearance
  • anxiety and stress management
  • energy conservation
  • what to do when your breathing gets worsehow to get help from other sources
  • healthy eating
  • self management planning
  • oxygen therapy- will you need it?
  • smoking cessation
  • maintaining fitness after the programme
