8BiApril 24, 2003 The Cuba Free Press Missouri Baptist Hospital-Sullivan SellCFP itClassifieds!fast in the helps patient "rehab his li00fe" Missouri Baptist Hospital- Sullivan cardiopulmonary rehab program 16 months later. There, Culver met Mike Whitaker, director of outpa-. tient services at Missouri Baptist Hospital-Sullivan, and RNs Denise Ettinger, Michelle Smith and Cheri Heitman. Culver, who had never exer- cised before, began his cardio- vascular exercises with very short workouts. He spent three minutes each on a treadmill, a Nu-Step machine (a machine "This whole process has given me a second chance, and I'm riot going to let it slip by." The "process" Bob Culver is referring to is his pulmonary rehabilitation. In June 2001, Culver was diagnosed with asbestosis, a scarring of the lungs caused by exposure to asbestos products. Even the lightest physical exertion left, him panting for breath. On his physician's recom- mendatitm, he entered the Alan Wesley photo Sullivan resident Bob Culver works out on the Nu-Step machine at the Sullivan Sports Fitness & Rehabilitation Center.

Bob Wilson cfp 4/23 that works both the arms and legs) and the arm ergometer (a stationary bicycle that is "ed- aled with the arms). "That v s all I could do," he says. "We provide encouragement, instruction and a monitored exercise environment that is based on a salb and progressive program of exercise," says Whitaker. "When patients like Bob do not join a cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program, they face two major obstacles: First, knowing how to get started and what to do, and second, actual- ly sticking with an exercise program." The Missouri Baptist Hospital-Sullivan cardiopul- monary 'rehab department offers rehabilitation services for a variety of chronic obstruc- tive pulmonary diseases, including emphysema, asthma, chronic bronchitis and other restrictive pulmonary diseases. It also treats patients after they have suffered a heart attack, have angina, or have undergone coronary bypass surgery. ARer working out three days per week for a 10-week period, Culver had built his strength until he was walking on the treadmill for 30 minutes, fol- lowed by 15 minutes each on the Nu-Step and the arm ergometer. "I can't say enough about the staff there," says Culver. "They are the greatest people you would ever want to meet." But Culver knew that the tremendous gains he had made in rehab program would soon be lost if he did not continue to exercise, so he joined the Sullivan Sports Fitness & Rehabilitation Center, which is part of the hospital. His work in rehab allowed him to contin- ue his exercise regimen at the center. "They would not have let me join the fitness center had I not completed the rehab program. The risks would have been too great," he says. Now, Culver works out for an hour a days, six days a week at the fitness center. Again, he was impressed with the staff. 'rhey really encourage me and applaud my success," he says. "Three months ago, there is no way that I could be exercising like I am now. I just can't say enough about the employees in the cardiopulmonary rehab department and the fitness center." "We have seen dramatic results in our rehab program people who couldn't climb a flight of stairs when they start- ed that can do an hour of car- diovascular exercise when they leave," says Whitaker. Culver confesses that had he not entered rehab, he would have not begun the "process" that has changed his life. "I wouldn't have believed that I could do it," he says. "But, thanks to their help, I've already accomplished a lot."
