Due to the fact that Lungs in Action programs might be run in a variety of locations depending on what is available to the providers, sometimes the equipment might look different to what you are used to. However, if your pulmonary rehabilitation health professional has referred you to the program, they will feel confident that the program is appropriate for you.
There may be times when your Lungs in Action or maintenance exercise instructor will refer you back to pulmonary rehabilitation. This may occur after a hospitalisation or if you are experiencing any new symptoms. This is so that you can be restored to a level of conditioning that will enable you to continue exercising safely without medical supervision.
Talk to your doctor, physiotherapist, exercise physiologist, respiratory nurse or the Lung Foundation about local programs, such as Lungs in Action to help maintain your health benefits.
