Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary Rehabilitation is an outpatient education and exercise program held at St. Mary's of Michigan Standish Hospital to help individuals return to the best possible health in the presence of lung disease.
We help participants increase their ability to handle work and activity, and improve their well-being and awareness of health problems, while decreasing shortness of breath.
Twice a week for approximately 9 weeks, patients use stationary bicycles, treadmills, arm ergometers and other equipment to improve muscle tone, so that they work more efficiently and use less oxygen. Oxygen saturation level and blood pressure are monitored during exercise.
In addition, a respiratory therapist, registered dietitian, registered nurse, exercise specialist and chaplin therapist educate patients about:
  • Anatomy of the lungs and lung diseases
  • Better breathing techniques
  • Stress management
  • Pulmonary medications
  • Improving performance of activities of daily living (ADL's)
  • Nutrition for the pulmonary patient
  • Coping emotionally with lung disease 
Your physician must write a prescription for enrollment in Pulmonary Rehabilitation.
The program is certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR).
Pulmonary Rehabilitation is located in the outpatient area of the hospital. For your convenience, use the main entrance. For more information, contact Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehabilitation at (989) 846-3415.
