“Breathe Easy” Helps Patients Breathe Easier

Improved Quality of Life from those Suffering from COPD

RAVNAH, in partnership with Wilcox Bioscrip, offers a new pulmonary rehabilitation program to help improve the quality of life for those living with pulmonary disease.

Breathe Easy is a clinically integrated, in-home program designed to mirror the level of care you would receive in a setting such as a nursing home.

Patients in the program receive physical and occupational therapies, nursing, and social work services in an effort to improve their functional status.  Patients are educated about their disease and equipment use, such as oxygen CPAP/BIPAP machines. They learn how to manage their medication and about techniques to conserve their energy and are guided through exercises and breathing strategies for them to use on a daily basis.

The goals of the Breathe Easy program are to reduce preventable hospitalizations and emergency room visits, educate patients about their disease, promote self-management, help family members and caregivers to provide better care and keep patients at home.

Each patient’s needs are different. An individualized plan is developed for the patient depending on what the patient’s personal goals are – then the team works together with the patient to figure out what needs to be done to reach those goals.

Signing up for the program is easy.  A referral can be made by the patient, family, friend, nursing facility or doctor.
