Pulmonary Rehabilitation Now Offered at JRMC

Jamestown Regional Medical Center (JRMC) is excited to announce their new service, pulmonary rehabilitation. Pulmonary rehabilitation allows patients to make the most of limited lung function.

“Pulmonary rehab aims to reduce symptoms, decrease disability and increase participation in physical and social activities while improving the overall quality of life for patients with chronic respiratory disease,” said Emily Kjelland, JRMC registered clinical exercise physiologist and cardiopulmonary rehab manager.

This new service is designed for adults who are increasingly limited in their everyday activities due to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Emphysema, Chronic Bronchitis, Sarcoidosis and other lung conditions. Pulmonary rehab can improve a patient’s ability to function and increase their quality of life. Some benefits that pulmonary rehab can provide are: reduce and control breathing difficulties, increase functionality for daily activity, reduce dependence on medical resources and much more.

A signed referral from your doctor is required for participation in the pulmonary rehab program at JRMC. The referral and other information regarding your physical condition links the pulmonary rehab team to the patients physician, allowing them to work together to provide the best possible care. For more information on pulmonary rehab at JRMC call (701) 952-4839.
