The pulmonary rehabilitation team at University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health Pulmonary Care and Sleep Medicine—made up of pulmonologists, exercise physiologists and respiratory therapists—tailors programs to your specific needs and abilities.

We want to do more than help you breathe better—improving your quality of life is our focus.

Pulmonary rehabilitation is an important part of managing chronic respiratory conditions like:

  • Asthma
  • Bronchitis
  • COPD
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Emphysema
  • Lung cancer
  • Pulmonary hypertension  


We believe the more you know about your respiratory illness, the better equipped you will be to manage it. To that end, our pulmonary rehabilitation services are designed to teach you about lung function, your specific lung condition and living a better life with your condition.

Our rehab services include personalized exercise training, new breathing techniques, counseling, education and support.

We can help you:

  • Increase your endurance
  • Decrease and relieve symptoms (such as shortness of breath and fatigue)
  • Improve your ability to manage self-care and routine household tasks
  • Return to hobbies and other activities
