Pulmonary Rehabilitation - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: You or someone you know may have an ongoing pulmonary or lung disease. This video will show you how a pulmonary rehabilitation program can help you live better with lung disease. Before you start your program, your health care team will learn about your health history. For example, you may have had problems with your heart or blood vessels. Then they will test how well your lungs are working. Breathing tests will measure how well you can breathe in and out or how much air your lungs can hold. A six-minute walk test may be performed. Your heartbeat, blood pressure, and blood oxygen level may be monitored. Your health care team will use your health history and test results to custom design your program. Your program may include three main parts-- exercise, education, and counseling. Over time, exercise can make your lungs and heart work better. It may also increase the amount of time you can perform your daily activities such as work, shopping, and exercise. If appropriate for you, your program will include aerobic exercise. This type of exercise makes you breathe harder and your heart beat faster. In addition, strength training exercises can make your muscles stronger, and stretching exercises can improve your flexibility. Education could include classes that will help you understand, manage, and cope with your lung disease. These classes will explain how the lungs normally work. They will also explain how diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, affect your lungs. You can learn two ways to manage your breathing. In pursed-lip breathing, you slowly inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth with pursed lips. In belly breathing, you train the diaphragm muscle to do most of the work of breathing. Your health care team will talk to you about your medication and lifestyle changes. You will be shown how to use oxygen if you are receiving this therapy. Talk to your doctor if you have questions about your medication or have any side effects. It is important to take your medications as directed by your doctor. If you smoke, lifestyle changes will include a plan to help you quit. A diet expert will help you make an eating plan if you need to gain or lose weight. You will also learn ways to help prevent respiratory infections, like certain types of pneumonia and the flu, by getting vaccinated. The health care team may work with you to make a plan to help save your energy. This can help you get more done while avoiding too much activity. Your program may also include counseling. This will help you cope with worry or depression you may have about your lung health. After a few months on the program, you may be given additional exercises and lung tests. These tests will help your health care team know if you're reaching the program goals. These goals may include increased tolerance for daily activity, less disease symptoms, and self-management and coping skills.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"At 3 PM it hit me--I needed exhibits of a tracheostomy, a coronary artery bypass and a deep vein thrombosis--all in time for a for-trial video deposition the next day. The Doe Report had each exhibit on line. In addition, I ran across an exhibit I hadn't even thought of: reduced ejection fraction after a heart attack. Because this was a video deposition, I could use the e-mail version of the medical exhibit, print it on my color copier, and let the camera zoom in. For $400, less than one blow-up by one of The Doe Report's competitors, I got four first-rate exhibits in less than a day. The Doe Report saved me time and money."

"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

"For modern audiences, it is absolutely essential to use medical demonstrative evidence to convey the severity and extent of physical injuries to a jury. Your company's high quality illustrations of our client's discectomy surgery, combined with strong expert testimony, allowed the jury to fully appreciate the significance of our client's injuries.

We are very pleased with a verdict exceeding $297,000.00, far in excess of the $20,000.00 initially offered by the defendant. The medical demonstrative evidence provided by Medical Legal Art was an asset we could not have afforded to have been without."
