Love Your Lungs Week

21-27 June is Love Your Lungs Week, run by the British Lung Foundation.

During this week we want remind anyone with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), or a lung problem, we have a pulmonary rehabilitation team who can help.

Pulmonary rehabilitation is an exercise and education programme designed for people with specific lung disease (COPD, Interstitial lung disease (ILD), Bronchiectasis) who experience symptoms of breathlessness.

It is characterised by an individually prescribed and progressed exercise training programme and an educational package that helps people to better understand their condition and symptoms to support effective self-management.

A pulmonary rehabilitation course typically lasts six weeks, with two sessions a week in a class environment.  It includes an individually prescribed exercise and education programme including aerobic exercise and resistance training and lifestyle support. This is complemented by patients carrying out a further session in their home environments
