PURPOSE: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease [COPD] is one of the world's most common non communicable health problems. COPD is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in both developing and developed world resulting in substantial economic and social burden.To date, none of the existing medications for COPD has been conclusively shown to modify the long term decline in lung function which is the hallmark of the disease. Pulmonary Rehabilitation is a multidisciplinary intervention that integrates patient education, physical exercise training, nutritional therapy and psychosocial support. This study is aimed at evaluating the clinical outcomes in patients with COPD who undergo structured and supervised Pulmonary Rehabilitation in our population in south India where such structured programmes are either rarely practiced or not easily accessible.
