Cardiovascular and pulmonary Physical Therapy is used for medical conditions that cause trouble breathing. It focuses on the physical function of the cardiopulmonary system, which comprises of the lungs and heart. Cardiovascular and pulmonary Physical Therapy combines exercise training with education. One will work on one's chest and postural drainage techniques to help control symptoms of one's condition make daily activities easier and to help one's breathing. Some conditions that can benefit from cardiopulmonary physical therapy program are COPD, asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, pulmonary fibrosis, thoracotomy, bronchiectasis, thoracic cage abnormalities, lung cancer, sarcoidosis, and lung transplants. Cardiovascular and pulmonary Physical Therapy is beneficial in case of pulmonary fibrosis, a condition that affects the lungs, in which the lung tissue becomes thickened, stiff, and is scarred. The blood vessels and alveoli in the lung's tissue become hardened, making it difficult to deliver the oxygen into the bloodstream. This makes difficulty in breathing, persistent but an unproductive cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, fevers, muscular and joint pain, and weight loss. Cardiovascular and pulmonary Physical Therapy helps optimise the lung's capacities and volumes, help with the patient's physical endurance, strengthen the muscles and assists in the improvement of the patients quality of life. It is also extremely beneficial for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) which causes the airways in one's lungs to lose their normal shape and elasticity and become inflamed. The airways become less efficient at moving air in and out of one's lungs.
