Abstract

Pulmonary rehabilitation results in substantial and clinically meaningful improvements in dyspnea, exercise capacity and quality of life for patients with chronic respiratory diseases such as COPD.  There is also evidence indicating that pulmonary re- habilitation reduces subsequent health care utilization and – perhaps – mortality, if the intervention is given in the post-exacerbation period.
