Extract

Pulmonary diseases are becoming more important causes of morbidity and mortality in the modern world, with COPD being the most common and a major cause of lung-related death and disability.1 Pulmonary rehabilitation has emerged as a recommended standard of care for patients with chronic lung disease based on a growing body of scientific evidence. In 1997, the American College of Chest Physicians and the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation published evidence-based guidelines.23 Because of the increase in the published literature on pulmonary rehabilitation, the purpose of this document is to update the 1997 guidelines with a systematic, evidence-based review of the literature.
