Announcing two Team PHenomenal Hope Events in November

October 26,2012

Novemeber is PH awareness month, and in honor of this, Team PHenomenal Hope has partnered with friends to bring two events viewable from anywhere via the internet!

Saturday, November 10 at 11AM EST – A Team PHenomenal Hope Workout: Pulmonary Rehabilitation for Pulmonary Hypertension

Team PH has partnered with UPMC Pulmonary Rehabilitation’s own Deb Piontek and Shawn McCurdy, who will lead patients and team members in a free, live 1-hour webcast from Cycling Fusion! Target audience: Patients, caregivers, and respiratory therapists who want to learn more about pulmonary rehabilitation in pulmonary hypertension. This is a demonstration of pulmonary rehabilitation and how it may be an adjunctive therapy in pulmonary hypertension.

Objectives include:

  • Demonstrate basic exercises and discuss how pulmonary rehabilitation can improve patients’quality of life
  • Encourage patient participation in a pulmonary rehabilitation program
  • Know when to contact a physician and learn to identify signs or symptoms that would indicate a change in condition
  • Learn to pace oneself in doing daily activities
  • Learn ways to pre-plan for travel
