Pulmonary rehab

Worked with critally ill patient such as lung transplant, trached patients, and  patient with other respiratory issues. Taught correct breathing techniques, acapella, ispiratory muscle trainer, IS, and weights to strenghten inspiratory mucles.  I worked patients with high anxiety levels, teaching them how to calm down their breathing and relax. I found this to be very rewarding as patients began to learn and get control of their anxiety.
