Pulmonary Hypertension Unit

Pulmonary Hypertension Rehabilitation Programme

To coincide with Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Week 2021, PHA Ireland are delighted to introduce a bespoke Pulmonary Hypertension (exercise) rehabilitation programme. Devised specifically for Pulmonary Hypertension patients by Ciara McCormack, an expert clinical exercise physiologist, it aims to provide PH patients with an opportunity to engage in some light exercises within their own home to help maintain their aerobic fitness and muscular strength. PH Patients are encouraged to try the exercises but to work at a level that feels comfortable for them. The exercise video is introduced by Professor Sean Gaine of the National Pulmonary Hypertension Unit, Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, Dublin, Ireland.
