Three phase program
Phase I (Initial)
This is an inpatient program which starts at the time of hospitalization. It aims to initiate early mobilization to reduce the effects of de-conditioning. It consists of oxygen therapy, chest wall manipulation, nebulization, postural drainage, breathing exercises and incentive spirometry to improve oxygenation. This is continued with a walking and exercise program at home or till patient return back to the hospital for Phase II.
Phase II (Conditioning Phase)
This consists of a comprehensive program to modify the aggravating factors for lung disease along with endurance training. This consists of chest care, aerobic exercise, stress management, smoking cessation, behavior modification, nutritional advice and patient and family education. The Phase II can begin after stabilization of the early symptoms. This is conducted in the form of group sessions or classes, one session usually last for 60-90 minutes. Frequency is 3-5 times a week to complete a total of about 20 sessions. Initial sessions of aerobic training are conducted with electrocardiographic monitoring. All sessions are physician monitored conducted by trained staff.
Phase III (Maintenance Phase)
This aims to continue the benefits gained by patients during Phase II. It consists of continuation of the aerobic exercise program but at a lesser frequency of 3 times a week at home/in a gymnasium/at a hospital.
