Cardiopulmonary & Respiratory Services

Stay Active & Breathe Easier With Help from Dedicated Pulmonologists

Every department in every hospital—from the infant ICU to operating rooms to the ER—utilizes cardiopulmonary services, including respiratory services. These services ensure patients are breathing with ease and stability, which is foundational to all forms of treatment. Our cardiopulmonary/respiratory team at Winchester Medical Center focuses on providing state-of-the-art care and support.

Cardiopulmonary/Respiratory Rehabilitation

Our rehabilitation program for patients with heart/lung conditions emphasizes education and doctor-prescribed physical exercise plans. Our goal is to provide patients with the resources they need to manage their symptoms and to maximize their physical and psychological abilities while coping with a heart or lung condition.

In addition to individualized rehabilitative care plans, we also provide educational classes that give patients the opportunity to learn more about the effects of their condition, what causes it, and how to manage life day to day. Our staff includes dietitians and pharmacists who provide instruction about nutrition and how medications affect your body and condition. The goal of our program is to see each patient “graduate” and independently manage his or her own health and fitness plan.
