Description

The aim of Respiratory Therapy is to reduce disability and handicap in people with lung disease and to improve their quality of life while the diminishing health care burden. The fundamental principles of rehabilitation are widely accepted and practiced unquestioningly in other medical disciplines, yet a recent survey has shown that provision of pulmonary rehabilitation services in the India for one of the most common causes of disability is very poor. In other countries, particularly North America, pulmonary rehabilitation has always had a more prominent role in the care of patients with chronic lung disease. The historical reasons for the poor showing in the other countries are complex, but may include medical indifference to non-pharmacological management, lack of scientific evidence, poor funding, and ineffective consumer demand. Clinical guidelines also appear to be lagging behind the strength of evidence in respect of rehabilitation.
