Program provides lung rehab remotely

Reuters, June 4, 2008

A program that uses video-teleconferencing, the internet and other technologies to deliver lung rehabilitation remotely to people with a chronic lung disease who live in rural areas helps them breathe more easily and get more out of life, researchers have found. The Telehealth program shows similar results to standard in-person lung rehabilitation, Tina Jourdain, a respiratory therapist who is involved with the program, told the American Thoracic Society's 2008 international conference in Toronto. The Telehealth program is an extension of the Breathe Easy Pulmonary Rehabilitation program based in Edmonton, Canada.
