Pulmonary Rehabilitation Video Series [VIDEO]

Many years ago, it was found that pulmonary rehabilitation is the most effective form of treatment for COPD and many other pulmonary diseases. Watch this series of six videos filmed in 1994 to hear from pioneers in the field of pulmonary rehabilitation: Thomas L. Petty, MD; Richard Casaburi, PhD, MD; Mary Burns, RN, BS; Brenda Crowe, CRTT; Julie Messa, MS; and Karen M. Kelly, MD, and to learn about how pulmonary rehabilitation has helped patients around the world.

Some things have improved since these videos were filmed, including smaller oxygen systems, better inhalers, and scientifically validated proof of the value of exercise and pulmonary rehabilitation, which can produce minor miracles in the lives of those who experience it, both teacher and patient.
