Pulmonary Rehabilitation

 

Increasing number of patients suffering from chronic respiratory diseases are attending CGHS wellness centres.  It is envisaged that conducting regular pulmonary rehabilitation programs for patients of CGHS will be beneficial to the patients suffering from chronic lung diseases like COPD, interstitial lung disease, asthma, etc.

Pulmonary rehabilitation is an established method of care for chronic respiratory cases in view of benefits both for the health system and the patients. Following are likely benefits: 

*        Improved understanding of patients about their lung diseases

*        Less visits to outpatient clinics resulting into reduced service utilization.

*        Less emergency visits to hospitals for emergency admissions

*        Reduced mortality and morbidity

*        Improve quality of life

*        Reduced expenditure on clinical care

Components of Pulmonary Rehabilitation:

*        Patient education

*        Training on correct technique of use of Inhaler device 

*        Exercise prescription

*        Diet advice

*        Answering patient queries

 

CGHS Pune has been regularly conducting since January 2019 which has elicited beneficiary interest in the program and their enthusiastic participation leading to the successful program implementation.
