A life-changing pulmonary event or chronic lung condition requires more than a single visit to your specialist. At Aspen Valley Hospital, we provide our patients with long-term pulmonary rehabilitation – a medically supervised progressive exercise and education program. Pulmonary rehabilitation treatment plans are individualized for each patient’s needs, offering thoughtful strategy and support to better manage chronic lung disease.
The pulmonary rehabilitation program at Aspen Valley Hospital is committed to helping pulmonary patients reclaim the richness of an active life. Those suffering from COPD, emphysema, asthma or bronchitis can rebuild strength, function and quality of life.
Patients living with a variety of lung conditions are eligible. Those conditions include:
Patients work with our providers in customized sessions utilizing a variety of equipment such as treadmills and stationary bikes. We closely monitor heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen saturation levels, and provide supplemental oxygen if necessary.
Initial Steps of the Patient Journey
Pulmonary Rehabilitation is available at both our Aspen Valley Hospital campus as well as our After-Hours Medical Care clinic in Basalt. Both locations offer comprehensive exercise equipment and state-of-the-art monitoring capabilities.
