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:
"The Doe Report's Do-It-Yourself Exhibits program enables easy customization of complex medical exhibits at a reasonable expense and in a timely manner. Practically speaking, custom medical exhibits are no longer an unthinkable luxury, but a routine necessity."

"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where people are used to getting information visually, through television and other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.

I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.

Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."

"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled [my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain that this contributed to our successful result."

Michael Gunzburg, Esq.
Attorney at Law.
New York, NY

"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"
