    Informative, enlightening and at the same time depressing…not from the already understood aspects of IPF and its implications but because this video shows how woefully inadequate some “care” (loosely termed) is — particularly when under the tight-fisted auspices of HMOs such as Kaiser-Permanente here in CO. Rehab, ongoing evaluation of O2 saturation and management and caregiver support are not even offered unless the patient has the knowledge and wherewithal to know it should be an integral part of their care.

    Bottom line: Parsimonious HMO minimal-level care has nothing in common with the enlightened approaches shown in this video…and there’s little hope that it will improve any time soon.

    There is available holistic medications that can be taken to retard IPf”s progression. These are lacking though specific protocols on administration on dosage and interaction with other medications. They can only be called dietary supplements. Thank you FDA! My experience with respiratory rehab. is marginal care most of the time with no coverage by insurances often along with poor follow up and poor individual focus on patients.
