Pulmonary care offered through Duke Physical and Occupational Therapy touches a broad range of diagnoses including:
Therapy places an emphasis on exercise tolerance and instruction in compensatory strategies for energy conservation. We also incorporate other airway clearance techniques such as the therapy vest, acapella, and active cycle breathing.
We have a daily pulmonary rehabilitation group for pre- and post-lung transplant patients.
The physical therapy team at Duke University Hospital is one of a handful in the nation that continues to perform manual chest physical therapy (CPT) for the management of pulmonary secretions.
To make an appointment for pulmonary physical therapy or for more information, call 919-684-2445.
