Pulmonary Education

Home-based pulmonary education programs from Lincare provide individualized education and support to respiratory patients and their families. At Lincare, we believe education means understanding, ultimately yielding compliance with recommended medical protocols and the best possible outcome for each patient. Our pulmonary education programs seek to benefit the patient through a foundation of carefully-collected research data and medical expertise. Elements of the program include relaxation techniques, coughing and breathing exercises, the provision of support literature and videos, discharge assessment, maintenance and physician follow-up reports.

  • Outcomes include:
  • Enhanced patient compliance with the treatment plan
  • Reduction in hospital readmissions and emergency room visits
  • Possible reduction in serious exacerbation and improved quality of life
